@Tala Is Eternal The sun streamed down on the historic district of Celadon City, illuminating an elegant pagoda-like theater--the home base of the Tamashiki Gekijou, one of the biggest Gekijou companies in Kanto. Today, though, was a special day--100 new performers had arrived to begin the rigorous training that all Gekijou performers had to undergo before they could perform. Once they completed their training, they would begin performing in the Amethyst Troupe. Particularly talented performers could jump to the Sapphire Troupe. No matter where they began, every performer had the same goal--perform in the Diamond Troupe--where the very best of the troupe performed. Diamond Troupe members would train the newcomers, and guide them on their journey to the top. No matter what their age or ability, all were welcome to undertake the journey. The first week of the training entailed learning about the history of the Gekijou, and its traditions, music, dance, and costumes.
