Act One

Act one was the audition. The members announced their candidacy for the role they wanted to fill for the second act and the audience were the judges. The members then appealed to the audience in four ways: dance inspection, self introduction, practiced performance ("etude"), and acting. In addition all members performed three Nogizaka songs.


Act Two

Act two was the musical. The theme for this season was Night on the Galactic Railroad. Members chose one of three parts to audition for: Giovanni, Campanella or the Scorpion, and the audience voted for one member for each part. The second act mostly only featured the three selected members.


Act Three

The final act was a mini concert. This was a new segment for the Principal musical series. All 12 members performed for this part.
