The 20 members of Hiragana Keyaki will present 24 performances of the play "Ayumi" at an 800-seat theatre in Shibuya in April-May.
For the play, Hiragana is divided into two teams of ten, by age, across generations: "Team Harmonica" is older, "Team Castanet" is younger. Each team will do 12 performances.

Kakizaki Memi: "Running the whole time" through a year of rapid progress
In the "Nagano Idol Vanguard" column in the Nagano edition of Asahi Shinbun last Saturday, Memi talks about the past year, saying she was "running the whole time" through a year in which the group made quick progress. She adds that she is now working on her singing, hoping to become good enough to get a solo song. To make the group better known, she wants to do a tour of smaller venues around the country, "like a samurai's journey of self-improvement." She didn't mention it, but no doubt she's thinking that Nagano would be one of the venues.
from Asahi Shinbun, Nagano edition, Saturday 17 March 2018:
The popular idol group Hiragana Keyakizaka46, to which Kakizaki Memi of Nagano Prefecture belongs, is releasing its first solo album. The group has completed a national tour, which began last March, and is riding the wave of three successful performances at Nippon Budoukan in Tokyo (Jan 30 - Feb 1). We got core member Kakizaki-san's look back at this "year of rapid progress."
"All kinds of things happened during the year. And now it seems over in an instant.... I was running the whole time," says Kakizaki-san with a smile.
