WARNING!! MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!
Act One: Ethnic Night
Because of the '95 earthquake, Moon Troupe was not able to perform their show "Hard Boiled Egg/Exotica" in the Grand Theater. Therefore, act one is a slightly modified version of the revue show "Exotica". The Top Stars of the other troupes perform as well.
Act Two: All Star Super Night
(A) Takarazuka the Night
A sequence of solos performed by the top stars and an MC.
(B) Disco the Night
A long medley of disco songs performed by the 2nd and 3rd ranked otokoyaku stars.
(C) Cinema the Night
A series of comedy skits with mixed casts. Slight spoofs of Takarazuka shows that ran that year mixed with famous movies. For example, Asaji Saki and Junna Risa's skit is a mix of A Map Without Borders and Rocky. They end with all of the top stars dressed as the main characters from Lupin III!
(D) Star the Night (Hollywood Musical Melody)
As it says, a medley of Hollywood musical songs.
(E) Super Night
The top stars sing solos from shows and dinner shows they performed that year.
- This was the first year the acronym TCA (Takarazuka Creative Arts) was used instead of TMP (Takarazuka Music Publication).
