From Tokyograph:
Morning Musume, Takarazuka team up for "Cinderella" musical
Sat, March 1, 2008 (7:58pm EST)

Morning Musume is once again teaming up with the Takarazuka Revue for a musical production. In 2006, Hello! Project members appeared in "Ribbon no Kishi," with the lead played by Ai Takahashi. This time, they will be taking on "Cinderella the Musical."

While Kaoru Ebira was the only Takarasienne to appear in "Ribon no Kishi," this time will involve many more of the group's actresses. The roster includes current members Ebira and Akemi Ko, former top stars Mire Aika and Saki Asaji, and 20 graduates serving as dancers. In addition, the musical is being directed by Sumio Sakai, a veteran Takarazuka director.

"Cinderella" will be performed 33 times at the Shinjuku Koma Stadium from August 6 to 25. Group tickets go on sale April 1, while general tickets will be available on June 29.

That's a good thing : Ai was wonderful in Ribbon no Kishi.

But I'm not convinced by the three new members in a comedy. Hope they'll prove me I'm wrong.

(what a pity there's no Rika...)

woop a revue! I hope they put some form of wota joke in there xD(obviously not the type that will actually offend them)

Since it's just MM this time, it should mean that they get some decent parts.

Shall we start guessing on roles?
Cinderella - let's just face it, she's amazing at singing and acting
Prince - Niigaki, or maybe Reina.  I can just see Niigaki being an awesome bishounen prince!
Step sisters - Sayumi! that really would be an awesome joke! and then maybe koharu?
fairy godmother - Eri? hmm not so sure
pet friend - Mittsi(u know like in the disney film with the mice..that sort of idea)

err trying to think of other roles...prince will probably have an assistant, that could be Junjun and Linlin(what ever their roles i can almost guarantee they will be a duo..much like erika and yui) and the mother will probably be played by a takarazuka..as will the prince's parents

i think the prince may be played by the takarazuka company.

i'm hoping for Eri to land the cinderella spot with Ai chan and Gaki san as her evil step sisters.

haha, I'm actually hoping that either Junjun, Linlin, or Niigaki to be Cinderella...
Or they may do Eri/Reina do the stepsisters, Takahashi as the stepmother, and Niigaki Cinderella? (like my fanfic) lol

the takarazuka member that played the king last time will probably play the king this time too.
Then another member will play the Queen.  So that leaves 2 others to have 'roles'(not backing dancers as it were) so probably a step-mother..then another..probably a random character specific to this version of the play.  Is there a kind of 'buttons' character in this version???(it's the Rodgers and Hammerstein version)

Junjun and Linlin absolutely have to be an over-the-top comedy duo in this tho! I really hope they use the two girls and don't just have them in the background(like they were in most of their first MM concert)

Hopefully, Takarazuka will take the step mother part :thumbdown:

I'll pray for Cinderella = Aika :heart:

i just realised Sayu should be the evil stepmother... she would excel in that role, seriously

Sounds great. Can't wait to see who's cast as what characters.

Just a question. Is it going to be performed everyday between the 6/8 and the 25/8?

So it is just Morning Musume in this one, without the other H!P artists? Well, that's going to limit the choice in characters. Before they had Yossi to play a male character and Miki to play the villain type, but they're not in momusu anymore. But Risa as the prince or something like that would be interesting! And I kinda see Reina as the Cinderella, she sings well enough for the part. Ai would work as the prince now too, in a way. What with her short hair and all.

All I can say is that I hope that Ai isn't the lead again. But, Sayumi would excel as the evil stepmother. Then Aika and Koharu could be the stepsisters. :rofl:

I could probably see Reina as Cinderella, actually.

I'd like to see Eri as Cinderella. Ai would be a good choice, but in my ideal world I feel it would be unfair since she was the center of the last musical. Junjun should play the stepmother or a stepsister because she's evil like that XD

but if Reina is Cinderella, she's too scary to be push around :lol: :lol:

I agree too ....... but the choice is limited ..........

But I assume that like last time they're all going to audition for the parts(i remember seeing them on musume dokyu)
It was the musical people that chose the main parts, not UFA or anyone.  So it will actually go to who is best suited for the part, including acting, singing and dancing in a professional way....in other words Ai is almost guaranteed a main part just because she is the most accomplished musume and she loves takarazuka and performing in this way so I think she kind of deserves it for that(remember that utaban/heyx3 a while back with their bags, she had a takarazuka magazine in her bag)
