My Neighbour Totoro Tickets

The world premiere of My Neighbour Totoro comes to London for a limited run

Tickets from £18


A highly anticipated global premiere! A stunning new stage adaptation of the magical and moving story comes to the Barbican this autumn for a limited 15-week run.

This landmark new adaptation is brought to life by The Royal Shakespeare Company (Matilda Musical) and the film's original composer Joe Hisaishi. It is written by playwright Tom Morton-Smith (Oppenheimer) in collaboration with Improbable and Nippon TV.

This captivating coming-of-age story discovers the magical fantasy world of childhood and the remarkable power of imagination. It follows sisters Satsuki and Mei, unfolding the story of one exceptional summer in their lives.

Their mother is recovering from an illness in a rural convalescent hospital, so in order to be closer to her, their father decides to move the family to the countryside.

As the two sisters explore their charming new surroundings, Mei runs into magical creatures, coming across the ancient protector of the forest she calls Totoro. Initially, Satsuki has trouble believing her little sister, but soon they are swept up in thrilling adventures together, transported to a long-lost realm of spirits, sprites, and natural wonder.

The RSC has always had a long tradition of staging ambitious new writing, with productions including Les Misérables, Liaisons Dangereuses, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, the Wolf Hall Trilogy and Matilda The Musical. They are now delighted to be continuing this tradition with another global premiere opening at the Barbican.

Find your spirit this autumn and be amongst the first to experience this stunning new adaptation for all ages.

Tickets are expected to be in extremely high demand. Book great seats to My Neighbour Totoro today whilst availability lasts.

Tickets from £18
