The Epic Adventure Returns from 1 July 2021
The Prince of Egypt, the hit musical based on the classic DreamWorks Animation film, will resume performances at London’s Dominion Theatre on Thursday 1 July 2021 with public booking now extended until Saturday 8 January 2022.
For the safety of audiences and The Prince of Egypt company, and out of an abundance of caution in allowing for delays in the current steps set out in UK Government’s roadmap, performances between Thursday 1 July and Saturday 4 September 2021 will take place under Step 3 protocols (social distancing)*. Performances from Monday 6 September 2021 onwards will operate under Step 4 protocols (all legal limits on social contact removed). The entire epic stage production, complete with its cast and orchestra of almost 60 artists, will be presented in its original form at all performances.
Producers DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw said in a joint statement: “Following the latest UK Government guidance on the easing of lockdown restrictions, we are delighted to confirm the return of The Prince of Egypt to the Dominion Theatre from Thursday 1 July 2021. The sheer size of this historic venue allows for full social distancing and, as soon as all legal limits on social contact are removed, we will return to our full audience capacity at the earliest opportunity. In re-opening, we are proud to re-unite our exceptional company and provide employment again for 149 uniquely talented individuals. We’d like to thank each and every one of them for their unwavering commitment and resilience during this difficult time for everyone in our industry. We look forward to telling this beloved story once again and experiencing the euphoric reactions that we were privileged to receive from audiences in 2020.”
*Please note: Should the Government timeline change, or be delayed for any reason, the schedule will be adjusted as necessary to ensure that all performances can continue safely under Step 3 protocols. Should all legal limits on social contact be lifted on or before Thursday 1 July 2021, then performances will operate according to Step 4 protocols at the earliest opportunity.
