    About My Neighbour Totoro

    My Neighbour Totoro is the story of sisters Satsuki and Mei, who move to be closer to their sick mother while she receives treatment. As summer stretches before them, they venture into the woods and befriend a medley of flighty spirits, including the larger-than-life forest protector, Totoro.

    Hayao Miyazaki’s 1988 film is transformed onstage to inspiring and jaw-dropping effect by the Royal Shakespeare Company (Matilda the Musical) and composer Joe Hisaishi. The film’s score is performed live alongside new orchestrations by Will Stuart.

    The My Neighbour Totoro play captivated audiences during a sold-out world premiere, and won 6 Olivier Awards thanks to stunning storytelling that combines music, beautiful set design and remarkable puppets built by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop - transporting you straight into the whimsical world of the film.
