Here in ESS, we are practicing dancing, singing and acting in English with a central focus on performing a musical at Saint Paul Festival. We have performed some masterpieces like “MAMMA・MIA!” and “West Side Story” in the past and this year, we’ll try to perform the original musical “Snow White and the evil spell”, which is based on the Disney movie “Snow White”. As well as dancing, singing and acting as a cast member, you can engage in stage sound operating, stage light operating and set making as a staff member. You can also find new possibilities within yourself and feel fulfilled by building up a performance with all the members.
Along with the Saint Paul Festival, we hold some performances only by junior high school members in September and the ESS assembly at the sister school in December. We are practicing hard to improve our performance skills, learning from each other and supporting each other.

We have performed some famous works such as “MAMMA・MIA!” and “WEST SIDE STORY,” and this year, we’re working on our original musical. “Snow White and the evil spell”, which is written based on the Snow White by Disney. Not only by playing, singing and dancing as a cast, but also by working on sound effectings, lightings and stage settings as a staff, every member supports the stages. Through creating one stage as one, we find something new and feel a sense of achievement.
Besides St.Paul Festival, we take place the stage for rookies, only performed by junior high students, and take part in the sister schools assembly. Improving and encouraging each other, we practice hard every day.
