The Prince of Egypt had a brief run at the Dominion Theatre, opening shortly before the theater industry shut down in 2020. This musical had two short engagements but ultimately concluded its run in January 2022. However, it was captured on film for release in December 2021 by Universal Studios International.

Composed by Stephen Schwartz (known for works like "Wicked" and "Godspell"), The Prince of Egypt features 10 brand-new songs in addition to 5 cherished tracks from the DreamWorks Animation film, including "When You Believe," "Deliver Us," "All I Ever Wanted," "Through Heaven’s Eyes," and "The Plagues."

The show was filmed a total of three times, with and without an audience, in order to capture close-ups and crane shots. To catch a glimpse of exclusive photos from the filming at the Dominion Theatre, check out our Prince of Egypt photo gallery.

Universal's plan is to release the film in cinemas in select markets before making it available through home media and various streaming platforms.



The film was granted a PG rating by the British Board of Film Classification on August 17th. The rating is due to "mild violence, threat, and upsetting scenes." The film has been cleared for release as a "VOD/Streaming" title by the board and boasts a runtime of 144 minutes.

Further information on cinema locations and exact dates and times will be released in the coming days. Tickets are expected to go on sale September 7th, 2023.

DreamWorks Theatricals, the lead producer of The Prince of Egypt, previously undertook a similar endeavor with their Broadway production of "Shrek the Musical" back in 2009. This earlier venture was released on DVD and Blu-Ray a few years after the show concluded its touring engagements, but it didn't have any theatrical screenings.

The musical is under the direction of Scott Schwartz, with choreography by Sean Cheesman. The creative team includes set designs by Kevin Depinet, costume designs by Ann Hould-Ward, lighting design by Mike Billings, and sound design by Gareth Owen.

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. Filmed live at the Dominion Theatre in London, this spectacular stage show comes to cinemas for the first time.
