The organizer of the Legend of the Galactic Heroes stage play "Chapter 2: Free Planets Alliance Arc", staring by Ryuichi Kawamura as Yang Wen-Li, has announced the first open audition for the new cast. The fourth play based on Yoshiki Tanaka's popular space opera novels will open at Kokusai Forum Hall C in Tokyo on April 14-22, 2012 (14 stages).
The first LOGH stage play "Chapter 1: Galactic Empire Arc" was opened at Aoyama Theatre in Tokyo in January 2011. Reinhard von Lohengramm was played by Tori Matsuzaka (Takeru Shiba/Shinken Red in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger). Following the success, two side-story plays focused on Reuenthal & Mittermeyer and Oberstein were played in the same year.
The applicants for the audition must be over 18 years of age, but no previous stage experience is required.
There is no mention which part and side (Galactic Empire or Free Planets Alliance) they can play. If you have
a choice, which LOGH character do you want to play on the stage, and which side?
Message from Ryuichi Kawamura (Yang Wen-Li)
