On Sale Dates Announced for SPIRITED AWAY at the London Coliseum

TOHO Co., Ltd. and PW Productions Ltd. are delighted to announce the priority and general on sale dates for the European premiere of the stage adaptation of SPIRITED AWAY, which opens at the London Coliseum on 30 April 2024 where it will play until 20 July 2024. A 48-hour priority booking period will begin for those who have signed up at www.spiritedawayuk.com from 10.00am on Tuesday 5 September 2023, followed by a general on sale from Thursday 7 September 2023 at 10.00am with tickets available from £30.

Studio Ghibli’s SPIRITED AWAY, created by legendary 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). Following a sell-out tour of Japan in 2022, the original Japanese cast including Kanna Hashimoto and Mone Kamishiraishi, who play Chihiro, will perform this spectacular production for a strictly limited London season. The production will be presented in the original Japanese, with English captions. Miyazaki’s masterpiece is brought beautifully to life with a live orchestra playing the magnificent film score by Joe Hisaishi arranged by Brad Haak (Mary Poppins), dazzling set design by Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell), wildly imaginative puppets designed by Toby Olié (Pinocchio: National Theatre), choreography by Shigehiro Ide (NODA MAP Series), and lavish costumes by Sachiko Nakahara.
