The heartwarming tale centers around two sisters, Satsuki and Mei, as they set out on a mesmerizing adventure. Following their family's move to the countryside to be with their ailing mother, the sisters explore their new surroundings, discovering more than meets the eye.

As Mei encounters magical creatures and an ancient forest protector right at their doorstep, Satsuki initially harbors skepticism.

Originating from the Studio Ghibli film, known for its meticulous attention to detail, the stage adaptation of My Neighbour Totoro ensures no stone is left unturned. Featuring handcrafted puppets from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop—the same company behind The Muppets and Sesame Street—the production promises a visual feast.

This landmark show is a collaborative masterpiece, bringing together the Royal Shakespeare Company, theatre company Improbable, and Japanese broadcaster Nippon TV. My Neighbour Totoro earned six prestigious Olivier Awards, including Best Entertainment or Comedy, Best Director (Phelim McDermott), and Best Set Design (Tom Pye), showcasing its excellence in various categories.
