MHI Group Employees Serve as Volunteers at Shiki Theatre Company's 2017 "Theater of the Heart" Performances in Sapporo


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 across Japan. Group employees, as well as their family members, regularly assist as volunteers at the troupe's performances near their workplaces.

"Gamba's Great Adventure" was performed between August 22 and 25 at the Nitori Culture Hall, part of the Sapporo Geibunkan complex, and eight performances were enjoyed by a total of around 15,600 sixth graders from local elementary schools. MHI Group employees and family members assisted as volunteers at the Aug 24 performance, helping to usher the young guests to their seats and providing guidance.

"Gamba's Great Adventure" is a story about a town mouse named Gamba who goes on an adventure with his friends where they must overcome many difficulties to rescue their friends from a terrible enemy. We hope that the theme and message of the story of 'being brave' and 'the importance of friends' was conveyed to the children, and that it will help to cultivate a richness of spirit in them.

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