Aside from DREAM BOYS this September, another stage play will be set that will star two groups from Johnny’s Juniors.
Titled as “Shounentachi“, the musical is a Johnny’s original and even starred SMAP back in 1993. This year, the play will be called “Shōnentachi sekai no yume ga... sensō o shira nai kodomo tachi” and will star Johnny’s Junior group SixTONES (Jesse, Matsumura Hokuto, Kyomoto Taiga, Tanaka Juri, Morimoto Shintaro, and Kouchi Yugo) and Kansai Juniors (Nishihata Daigo, Mukai Koji, and Muro Ryuta. Other members from Johnny’s Juniors will also lend them a hand.
Since I don’t follow most junior groups, I’m surprise about SixTONES. Based from what I read in janishowa, the group is fairly new, they were formed last May 2015 and most of the members came from the now defunct “Bakaleya Six”. SixTONES is definitely a better name than “Kinpuri”, kudos to whoever thought of the group’s name and this group joins the long line of other Johnny’s Juniors hoping to debut.
“Shounentachi” will run in Nissay Theater from Sept 4th-28th.
