Experience the epic emotion and soaring music of The Prince of Egypt, the extraordinary new musical from three-time Academy Award®-winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked).
Journey through the wonders of Ancient Egypt as two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.
Based on the acclaimed DreamWorks Animation film, and featuring the Academy Award®-winning, chart-topping song ‘When You Believe’, The Prince of Egypt is an exhilarating, powerful and joyous celebration of belief and the human spirit.
The Prince of Egypt is produced by DreamWorks Theatricals (a division of Universal Theatrical Group), Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw.

An earnest, delightful mess
It’s only fair to report that the audience around me seemed entirely satisfied and were very enthusiastic with their whoops
Explosive dancing, clever magic tricks, great costumes, brilliant use of video backdrop, stunning special effects and faultless voices
Struggles to deliver any miracles of its own
A confused story, poor performances and mediocre songs – THE PRINCE OF EGYPT is extremely disappointing
While newcomers will know no different, I fear fans of the film will be left wanting to return to the animation
The most memorable element of the show is Sean Cheesman’s fantastic choreography
