Osaka Shiki Theatre
|OPEN HOURS||Varies depending on the show.|
Osaka Shiki Theatre is the Shiki Theatre Company's first theater in the Kansai area, which opened in the building of "Herbis Ent" in the Nishi-umeda area, downtown Osaka, in November 2004. A Western-style, narrow and high-ceilinged theater, it enables reproduction of musicals produced at various overseas theaters. With a seating capacity of about 1,200 and its second-floor seats protruding above the stage, the theater is designed to make audiences feel close to the stage. Established in 1953, the Shiki Theatre Company enjoyed a major success in 1983 with "Cats," the first long-running show in the company's history. Now Japan's largest theatrical company, it has about 800 members. At the Osaka Shiki Theatre, "Mamma Mia!" which had been presented since the theater's opening, concluded its run on February 12, 2007. Its second production, "the Phantom of the Opera," opened on May 3, 2007. Eventually, the theater will present overseas musicals and Shiki's original productions on a fifty-fifty basis.
