‘The Prince of Egypt’ to welcome full capacity audiences from 23 July
The musical was originally scheduled to run with social distancing until September.
On the same day that English theatres are allowed to play to full capacity audiences once more, The Prince of Egypt has given an update on its audience capacity. The Prince of Egypt will now play to full capacity audiences at the Dominion Theatre from 23 July, which has now been bumped up by five weeks.
Currently, The Prince of Egypt performances are suspended to 21 July. There will be three more socially distant performances on 21 and 22 July, before full capacity shows from 23 July onwards. The Prince of Egypt tickets are on sale now.
In a joint statement from producers DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw, they said: “In adherence of the latest UK Government advice and concurrently with all other West End theatres, we will now begin reverting to full capacity audiences. In order to maintain the maximum safety and comfort of our audiences, and to best protect the Dominion Theatre’s fantastic frontline staff, we will be maintaining stringent hygiene protocols and COVID-secure measures throughout the venue, including timed arrivals and increased airflow. The wearing of face coverings by audiences will be expected and recommended, unless medically exempt. All staff interacting with the public will be wearing face coverings.”
Based on the biblical story which was later adapted into a DreamWorks animation, The Prince of Egypt dramatises how Moses rose up to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. The 154-strong company includes Luke Brady as Moses, Liam Tamne as Ramses, Christine Allado as Tzipporah and Alexia Khadime as Miriam, and features music by Stephen Schwartz including the Academy Award-winning song “When You Believe.”
