1953 Japanese Theater Program - Nipper Cover

From a friend in Japan comes this very cool program from the Tokyo Gekijo theater.  We've seen this cover before on a Japanese item, the LGB-sized book posted here.  This art was originally used on the RCA Victor Little Nipper record book, something I've not gotten around to posting about as of yet, but it's coming, I promise
Inside is typical program fare, including some b/w art taken from the FC331 comic book, and used on another Japanese program, which I'll post shortly.
The Tokyo Gekijo theater was original a kabuki theater, having been converted to a movie theater in 1952, one year before Alice was released in 1953 in Japan.
