「Girls' Drama Club」The 3rd installment is a fantasy set in a parallel universe


The Girls' Drama Club is a new project born out of Hello! Project, with an entirely female cast. The third production going live on stage in June is the musical 「Lilium - Shoujo Junketsu Kageki」(Lilium - Girls' Purity Musical). The participating cast are select members from Morning Musume '14, S/mileage, and including some of the H!P Kenshuusei for a total cast strength of 16 members. We have spoken to Sayashi Riho of Morning Musume '14, who along with Wada Ayaka of S/mileage, will be playing the leading role in the musical.

Sayashi: This will be the 3rd time I am participating in a musical. It's difficult of course, not only just having to memorize the lines, but we also utilize the power of melody and song lyrics in order to more easily express the presentation of the world the musical is set in. The story this time is set in a fantasy world where 800-year-old vampire girls are housed in a sanatorium, and I feel like a musical is best suited for a tale like that.

Sayashi will be acting in the role of a vampire girl named Lily, who is approaching her "Cocoon Period" (something akin to human adolescence). In this sanatorium that is segregated from the human world, a strange occurrence has taken place, in the form of a disappearance of one of the girls who are housed in the sanatorium. However, the only ones to notice this are Lily and her best friend Snow (Wada Ayaka). As the two of them investigate the truth of the matter, they come to slowly realize that there is a "huge force" behind the scenes that controls their secluded world...

Sayashi: Even as the "vamp" girls appear to be free to act as they please, in a way, they are still guided by fate toward their intended ending. As there are more singing and dancing scenes than usual, it feels almost like an extension of our usual activities. This time too, as the cast is made up solely of H!P members, there isn't anyone who has extensive stage experience whom we could refer to during rehearsals. We have to figure it out all by ourselves, but it's definitely something worth doing.

Lily's unconscious realization shakes up the carefully built up world someone has put them in. Using the tableau of the girls housed in a sanatorium, this story seeks to express the danger and fragility of the world. A part of the all-female cast has been cast into male roles as well, to depict a "forbidden world" of love and romance with Lily and the other girls.

All 16 members of the cast are idols. Be sure not to miss the beautiful fantasy world they are building on stage through drama, song and dance.
