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


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.

Between June 26 and 29, the Shiki Theatre Company gave 6 performances of "Majorin Who Threw Away Magic" in the main hall of Meguro Persimmon Hall in Tokyo. The shows were enjoyed by a total of some 4,700 sixth graders from 57 elementary schools in the city's Setagaya and Meguro wards. Two MHI Group employees assisted as volunteers at the performances given on June 29, helping to guide and usher the young guests to their seats.

"Majorin Who Threw Away Magic" is an original story about a witch named Majorin who, from her interaction with human beings, comes to understand the warmth and compassion imbued in the words "thank you." From this lesson, Majorin learns the importance of kindness, friendship and courage in everyday life. It is hoped that from this show young children will cultivate their richness of spirit.

Going forward, through various opportunities the MHI Group will continue to actively support the development of the children of the next generation.
