Good afternoon, everyone!
We’ve lucked out and had two days of sunshine in a row. The snow is melting and we’re getting a little taste of spring.
Today, I’d like to tell you about a couple events happening this weekend. First will be on Saturday, where the Itoigawa Community Center will present Prayer of the Earth — Professor Naumann’s Dream, a musical narrative created by and starring members of the Itoigawa community.
The performance is one of many ways in which we hope to share the message of the earth and of the Itoigawa Geopark.

Now, that performance is in Japanese. If you are looking for a fun performance in English, this year the Niigata Charity Musical Group is putting on an original musical in Itoigawa this Sunday. The musical is an original interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, written and performed by Niigata’s Assistant English Teachers.
The musical will be held at Beach Hall Magatama on Sunday, March 10th. Tickets will be 1000 yen for adults and 500 yen for students. I will be attending, I hope to see you there as well! All proceeds go to benefit child education in Papua New Guinea.
