About the Company

RAKUJUKU, which loosely means ‘having fun troupe╩╝, began in 1997 with Show Ryuzanji as a director who wanted to ‘have fun╩╝ with people who had already experienced life, which meant over the age of 45. RAKUJUKU is now well-known as a pioneer acting company for senior actors. Each member has her/his own family and has raised children or even grandchildren, which brings to the stage her/his own unique presence. Their energy and enthusiasm are as great as or even greater than young ones╩╝.
