About RSC’s 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), My Neighbour 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.
