My Neighbour Totoro

Don't miss the theatrical event of 2025 as the record-breaking, award-winning My Neighbour Totoro transfers to London's West End.

Find your spirit with the return of the "awe-inspiring" (Time Out) production of Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbour Totoro, in collaboration with Improbable and Nippon TV. Following two rapturously received, sell-out runs at the Barbican, discover this five-star, ground-breaking "triumph" (Telegraph) at the Gillian Lynne Theatre from 8 March 2025.

Winner of six Olivier Awards, this "utterly beguiling" (The Stage) and “jaw- dropping” (Metro) staging of the celebrated 1988 animated feature film is brought to you by the Royal Shakespeare Company and Executive Producer Joe Hisaishi, and adapted by Tom Morton-Smith (Oppenheimer).Hailed as “a tender and remarkably beautiful show” (Financial Times), MyNeighbour Totoro is an enchanting coming-of-age story exploring the magical fantasy world of childhood and the transformative power of imagination, as it follows one extraordinary summer in the lives of sisters Satsuki and Mei.
