For your next school trip, we invite you on a journey of discovery in Ancient Egypt.
The new musical THE PRINCE OF EGYPT provides a wealth of opportunities to help fulfil and enrich National Curriculum requirements and deliver cross-curricular links.
The production stunningly re-imagines the acclaimed DreamWorks Animation film for the stage, telling the extraordinary story of how Moses inspired his people to escape from slavery and risk everything for freedom, and a new life, in the Promised Land.
THE PRINCE OF EGYPT features songs by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell) and is written by Philip LaZebnik (Mulan, Pocahontas). They wrote the songs and screenplay respectively for the DreamWorks Animation film.
London’s Dominion Theatre is 1-minute from Tottenham Court Road Underground Station and 4-minutes from the British Museum.

The production includes 5 of the acclaimed songs featured in the DreamWorks Animation film, including Deliver Us, All I Ever Wanted, Through Heaven’s Eyes and the Academy Award®-winning When You Believe, as well as 10 brand new songs.
When You Believe remains a highly popular song choice for school choirs and orchestras and various piano, vocal, choir and A Capella scores based on the original film orchestrations are currently available from retailers.
As well as contemporary instruments, the orchestra features 10 Ancient Middle Eastern instruments, with origins dating back thousands of years.
"One of the many things which excites me about the music for this new stage version of The Prince of Egypt is our use of Middle Eastern instruments in the orchestration. Our orchestrator, August Eriksmoen, is an expert at using unusual instrumentation to create an exotic and authentic atmosphere.”
Composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz
