It's finally her time to shine | Flower Troupe's New Top Musumeyaku - Senna Ayase
Having slowly and steadily worked herself to the position of Top Musumeyaku, Flower Troupe's Senna Ayase assumes the title with her debut performance in the national tour production of “Romanesque Mask” and “EXCITER!! 2017” (March 18-20, Umeda Arts Theatre Main Hall in Osaka) This year, she enters her tenth year with the revue. "My parents said to me, 'You've done your best until now'. It's taken a lot of time, but it wasn't all in vain" she said, reflecting back.

Senna is from Miyagi Prefecture. When she was creating her stage name, one kanji was taken from Sendai and Natori City. "Until entering the Takarazuka Music School, I hadn't ever seen Takarazuka live. I want Takarazuka to be more known in my hometown too." she said. While in the middle of returning home in 2011, she felt the Great East Japan Earthquake. She was unsure about whether she should immediately go to perform at the Tokyo Takarazuka Theatre. "Acquaintances who survived the earthquake said to me 'I want to see your performance', and I realized that if you can take time to dream, especially in times of suffering, then your heart can be put at ease. It's really striking when everyone stands on stage holding the same feelings in their heart." she said looking back on the experience.

After assuming her new position, Top Star Asumi Rio said to her, "Don't do it alone. Let's have fun making our roles together." "I think our fans are looking forward to our synergy. Using all my experiences up until now, I want to believe in Asumi-san and follow her" she said with sparkling eyes.
