If your children love The Prince of Egypt, the beautiful animated 1998 movie by DreamWorks, they'll be thrilled to bits to hear about this extraordinarily special event. DreamWorks Theatricals, a part of Universal Theatrical Group, along with Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw, have just announced a brand new musical based on the movie.
The stage show will, of course, feature the the Academy Award winning tune, 'When You Believe', a song fans have been singing since the movie was released. We bet you can't wait to see it on stage!
The fun kicks off at the Dominion Theatre on 5th February 2020, and there's going to be a glittering, star-studded London premiere on 25th February 2020. It's on stage for a limited run of just 32 weeks, and you can buy tickets from early summer 2019, proof – as if you needed it - that the show is predicted to sell like hot cakes.
The music and lyrics are by Stephen Schwartz, who worked on the massive smash hit Wicked, a show which almost ten million people have seen so far in London alone and 60 million globally. The book comes from Philip LaZebnik, whose involvement with Mulan and Pocahontas has delighted millions. The musical is directed by the excellent Scott Schwartz, of The Hunchback of Notre Dame fame, and beautifully choreographed by Sean Cheesman, who did wonderful things with the US telly talent show So You Think You Can Dance.
This epic new musical features ten new show tunes, all written by Stephen Schwartz, plus five of his best-loved songs from the DreamWorks Animation. You'll soon be singing along with Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted and Through Heaven’s Eyes and more, as well as the award-winning When You Believe.
The plot? You'll travel through Ancient Egypt with a couple of young men, Moses and his adopted brother Rameses, the heir to the throne of Egypt. They've been raised together as brothers in a wealthy household but they're divided unexpectedly by a secret. One young man will become the Pharaoh, the other feels he must rise up and free the enslaved people. And their actions will change their world forever.
In 2018 The Prince of Egypt, the film, celebrated its 20th anniversary. It was praised widely by the critics and still holds the crown as one of the best-loved animations ever created. This epic new stage adaptation premiered at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley and won the 2019 Regional Theatre Tony Award. It also raised the roof at the Fredericia Teater Denmark. Now it's our turn. We can't wait!
