The live-action musical adaptation based on the official spin-off CD project “Shining Theatre” of popular rhythm game series “Uta no Prince-sama” announced key visuals and casts earlier this week. Titled “Polaris”, this is the latest in the line of a series of musical adaptations for the spin-off theatrical project.
The full-costumed cast visuals of the three main characters were revealed along with the project’s key visual. Playing the role of Tokiya Ichinose is Ryunosuke Matsumura – and for him, this is actually a reprisal of role where he played the same character in the previous “Shining Theatre” project’s musical adaptation of “Joker Trap“.
Playing the role of Natsuki Shinomiya is young model-actor Soichiro Yamakawa. The young talent is more well-known as a fashion model since his debut in the entertainment industry so there are some who speculate that this role may be his debut spring-board into the 2.5D acting world.
Shojiro Yokoi, the actor for Cecil Aijima is also, like his fellow-actor Matsumura (above), reprising his role for a second time. He previously played the character Cecil in the 2017 production of the ‘Shining Theatre’ musical project “Tenka Muteki no Shinobi-Michi“.
“Polaris” will commence its performance run in Tokyo’s AiiA 2.5 Theatre in September 2018; then in October 2018 showcase the production run at the Umeda Arts Theatre’s Drama City in Osaka. The results of the advanced tickets balloting will be announced on 22 July 2018 and fans that have tried balloting for and won seats for the performance slots they wanted will be duly notified.
Fans who have missed the advanced ticket-balloting deadlines need not fret as public ticket sales start on 25 August 2018 at 10:00AM (Japan standard time), and if theyy would like to find out more details about this production may visit their official site.
