NON” plays a zombie boy in NHK Minna no Uta Musical “Little Zombie Girl”!

NON” will be playing the role of a zombie boy in NHK’s Minna no Uta Musical “Little Zombie Girl”!

It will be performed at the Nissay Theatre Family Festival in July 2020.
The story of a small friendship between Nono, a zombie girl living in a remote forest, and Sho, a human boy living in the city.
Mone Kamishiraishi and Ayaharu Kumagai play the roles of Nono, a zombie girl who is full of energy and curiosity.
The roles of Sho, a quiet and kind-hearted human boy, will be played by Nonon and Ririan Ito (Nogizaka46), each of whom will be W-cast.

This is the definitive version of the original musical, featuring all the classic songs from NHK’s “Minna no Uta,” which has been widely popular since its broadcast in 1961 and has produced over 1,300 songs since then.

NON (Shaw, W cast)
I love the unique world of children, so I have been interested in playing a boy for a long time. The character is not very courageous, so I was conscious of giving the character a timid appearance. And yet, there is also a sense of innocence as he talks with Nono with curiosity.
I had a lot of fun filming and I can’t wait to step on stage with you all.
