The Prince Of Egypt and Amélie nominated for 2021 Grammy Award

First Published 25 November 2020, Last Updated 30 November 2020

The Prince Of Egypt and Amélie musicals have been nominated for the 2021 Grammy Award in the ‘Best Musical Theatre Album’ category. The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on 31 January, 2021 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and we can’t wait to see who will be crowned as the winner.

The Prince Of Egypt, the hugely popular new musical based on the classic DreamWorks Animation film, opened at the Dominion Theatre earlier this year and is due to return next year, pending Government guidelines.

The production’s acclaimed original cast recording was released on Ghostlight Records, and is available on CD, digital and streaming formats. The album is produced by Dominick Amendum and Stephen Schwartz, with Kurt Deutsch serving as Executive Producer.

With a cast and orchestra of almost 60 artists, this “massive new stage show” (Time Out) has music and lyrics by Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell), a book by Philip LaZebnik (Mulan, Pocahontas) and features 10 brand new songs written by Stephen Schwartz, together with 5 of his acclaimed songs from the DreamWorks Animation film (Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted, Through Heaven’s Eyes, The Plagues and the Academy Award-winning When You Believe, which was a global hit for Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey as well as a UK and Ireland chart-topping winner’s single for The X-Factor).

Based on the five-time Academy Award-nominated film, the critically acclaimed Amélie The Musical first opened with a sell-out season premiere at the Watermill in Newbury, before playing a limited festive season at The Other Palace last year. 

This screen to stage adaption starring French-Canadian stage and screen star Audrey Brisson as Amélie Poulain, is beautifully written by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Guillaume Laurant, directed by Michael Fentiman, and features music by Hem’s Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Daniel Messé.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Taylor Swift were also nominated for “Beautiful Ghost” from the big-screen adaptation of Cats under the ‘Music For Visual Media’ category.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices.

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.
