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


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.

On January 26, the Shiki Theatre Company gave two performances of "Children of the Storm" at Nagasaki Brick Hall in Nagasaki City. Both shows were enjoyed by a total of around 2,700 sixth graders from 49 local elementary schools. Two MHI Group employees assisted as volunteers, helping to usher the young guests to their seats.

The theme of "Children of the Storm" is "the treasures of life found in the adventure." Through the arduous work of the children who help each other in the storm, one learns the importance of friendship and how wonderful it is to work with hope and courage.
We hope that the show will remain in the hearts of children and help them become well-rounded young adults.

Going forward, the MHI Group will continue to support the Shiki Theatre Company's activities by dispatching volunteers to performances held anywhere throughout Japan. Through activities of this kind, we are strongly committed to keep actively supporting children of the next generation.
