The Prince Of Egypt is coming to London

It seems there can be miracles and the latest one for the West End is the announcement that there’s a brand new musical based on Dreamworks’ The Prince Of Egypt coming to London.

The stage adaptation of the critically acclaimed and much-loved film will play at the Dominion Theatre from February 2020 for a strictly limited 32-week run. The show will be celebrating its UK premiere having previously played at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley (winner of the 2019 Regional Theatre Tony Award®) and Fredericia Teater Denmark.

The show will feature the Oscar-winning song When You Believe – which was made world famous when it was released as a single by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston – alongside four other songs from the film and 10 brand new songs written by Wicked‘s Stephen Schwartz who wrote the original score for the film.

Joining Stephen on the creative team is Philip LaZebnik (Mulan and Pocahontas) who has written the book, Scott Schwartz (The Hunchback Of Notre Dame) as director and choreographer Sean Cheesman (So You Think You Can Dance), with DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw producing. Casting and full creative team have yet to be announced.

The Prince Of Egypt will take you on a journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt as two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.

The original movie celebrated its 20th-anniversary last year so fans have been waiting a long time for this to happen. Tickets for this brand new production go on sale on 3 June so mark the date in your calendar.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
