Notes

Title devised by cataloguer.

Shōchiku Kagekidan is a Japanese all-female theatre troupe established in 1928 and closed in 1996. In the 1930s, it became one of the most popular theatre troupes, and after WWII, it remained popular, featuring on "Grand Revue" which made use of the big stage. After the 1950s, Shochiku Kagekidan performed overseas in order to introduce the Japanese culture to a wider audience. The first overseas tour was held in Southeast Asia in countries such as Thailand and Singapore from 26 November 1954 to 18 February 1955. These materials were previously collected and held by a participant in the tour.

Text mainly in Japanese; 3 theatre programs in Chinese and Thai, some items in English.
