"Many nights we've prayed," and at last new musical The Prince of Egypt is announced for London's Dominion Theatre. An adaptation of the DreamWorks animated film about the life of prophet Moses, the show will feature five of the original songs plus ten new additions. See it during its limited 32-week run from 25 February 2020.

DreamWorks Animation brought out the film The Prince of Egypt in 1998 as the studio's inaugural project. It boasts songs by Stephen Schwartz and a score by Hans Zimmer. The number "When You Believe" went on to be covered by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and subsequently won Best Original Song at the 1999 Academy Awards. In 2017, the new musical version premiered at TheatreWorks in Silicon Valley.

Based on the Bible's Old Testament story, The Prince of Egypt follows the life of Moses. A Hebrew born into slavery, baby Moses is sent down the river in a basket by his mother to escape slaughter, before being found and adopted by the Pharaoh's wife. As he grows and learns of his roots, he begins to realise his destiny: to lead the Hebrews out of slavery. With God on his side, Moses visits ten plagues upon the Egyptian tyrants and parts the Red Sea to allow his people to escape.

Stephen Schwartz has written 10 new songs specially for the stage production. His most notable projects include penning the songs for Wicked, and for the Disney animations Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The Prince of Egypt The Musical has a book by Philip LaZebnik (Disney's Pocahontas). It is directed by Scott Schwartz - Stephen Schwartz' son - and choreographed by Sean Cheeseman. Other creatives on the show include set designer Kevin Depinet and costume designer Ann Hould-Ward.

Moses will be played by Luke Brady (Sweeney Todd, Shakespeare's Globe: The Merchant of Venice) alongside Liam Tamne (The Light in the Piazza) as Ramses. Hamilton alumnus Christine Allado will play Tzipporah and Alexia Khadime (The Book of Mormon, Les Misérables) will play Miriam.

A glorious new musical with music by the best in the business, The Prince of Egypt is a theatrical treat of biblical proportions. It runs at the Dominion Theatre from 25 February 2020.
