Spirited Away - coming to the London Coliseum in 2024

Spirited Away at the London Coliseum dates announced

Producers of major new West End show Spirited Away have confirmed dates for its 2024 run at the London Coliseum.

The show will perform at the London Coliseum from 30 April to 20 July 2024.

Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away, created by award-winning animator and director Hayao Miyazaki, has been re-imagined for the stage by Toho Theatrical Department and Olivier and Tony Award-winning director John Caird (Les Misérables).

The show comes to London following a sell-out tour of Japan in 2022, and the original Japanese cast including Kanna Hashimoto and Mone Kamishiraishi, who play Chihiro, will perform in the London season.

The production will be presented in the original Japanese, with English captions.

A live orchestra will also play the film’s much-loved score by Joe Hisaishi, arranged by Brad Haak (Mary Poppins). Set design is by Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell), with puppets designed by Toby Olié (Pinocchio – National Theatre), choreography by Shigehiro Ide (NODA MAP Series), and costumes by Sachiko Nakahara.

Spirited Away won an Oscar in 2003 for Best Animated Feature Film, and tells the enchanting tale of Chihiro who while traveling to a new home with her family, stumbles into a world of fantastic spirits ruled over by the sorceress Yubaba. When her parents are turned into pigs and she is put to work in a magical bathhouse, Chihiro must use her wits to survive in this strange new place, find a way to free her parents, and return to the normal world.

Producers of the stage show, PW Productions and TOHO Co. Ltd, said in a statement: “We are so excited to be bringing this incredible production to London, and we are committed to ensuring that SPIRITED AWAY is as accessible as possible to audiences, with tickets available for every performance for under £30. We can’t wait to share this sensational show with you all.”

New artwork has also been released promoting the show.
