The Camp Dance: The Music & The Memories

Our popular musical revue focusing on the high school dances young Japanese Americans held behind barbed wire fences in America’s concentration camps.

Natsukashi no Kouhaku Uta Gassen

Our version of “Kouhaku” is a hilarious spoof of Japan’s famous “Red Team vs. White Team” singing contest. Singing some of the best and most nostalgic Japanese songs ever recorded, we do entertaining impressions of famous singers such as Saijo Hideki, Yamaguchi Momoe, Mikawa Kenichi, Itsuki Hiroshi and Misora Hibari, just to name a few. And in the end, the audience vote decides the winner.

Nihonmachi: The Place to Be

A musical journey back in time to a place we all know and love: Nihonmachi, the way it used to be. In this show, we tell 100 years of Japantown history, as seen through the eyes of a local manju-making family. If you like J-Town & manju, this show is for you.

Nikkei Hit Parade: A Tribute to the Nisei Generation

Popular as entertainment for fundraising dinners, this show is our take on the classic radio show, “Your Hit Parade,” where we count down 15 of the Nisei generation’s all-time favorite Japanese and American songs. Our “Hit Parade Singers” also sing entertaining “jingles” for event sponsors in recognition of their support.

Project Momotaro

In this show, we tell three classic Japanese children’s stories: “Momotaro, the Peach Boy,” “The Tortoise & The Hare” and “Tanabata.” Originally meant to introduce Japanese American children to their culture and heritage, the show has turned out to be fun and nostalgic for the entire family.

The Betrayed, A Play by Hiroshi Kashiwagi

Set at the Tule Lake concentration camp in 1943, two young Nisei meet and fall in love only to split apart by two government-issued “loyalty” questions. Forty years later, we meet Grace and Tak again, and learn how these questions affected them for the rest of their lives.
