MHI Group Employees Serve as Volunteers at Shiki Theatre Company's "Theater of the Heart" Performances in Ota Ward and Meguro Ward


Since fiscal 2013, in line with its CSR Action Guidelines and its commitments to "create a more harmonious society" and "inspire the future," the MHI Group has supported the Shiki Theatre Company's "Kokoro no Gekijo" (Theater of the Heart) musical productions aimed at cultivating a richness of spirit among children of the next generation from its local communities. Group employees, as well as their family members, regularly assist as volunteers at the troupe's performances near their workplaces.

"Children of the Storm" was performed for the first time between June 20 and 23 at the Ota Kumin Hall Aprico, in Ota Ward, Tokyo, and again between June 27 and 30 at the Meguro Persimmon Hall, and 14 performances were enjoyed by a total of around 14,000 sixth graders from local elementary schools.
The theme of "Children of the Storm" is 'Learning important life-lessons through adventure.' Through the arduous experiences of the children who help each other in the storm, the performance makes the audience realize the wonderfulness of working with hope and courage, and the importance of friendship.
We hope that this performance will remain in the hearts of children and help them become well-rounded.
A total of nine Group employees assisted as volunteers, on June 20, 22 and 30, helping to usher the young guests to their seats and providing guidance. Going forward, we will continue to support these activities by dispatching volunteers to performances to be held in various places from Hokkaido to Kyushu.

The MHI Group is strongly committed to continue actively supporting children of the next generation.
