VIDEO: Trailer Released for Prince of Egypt Musical Live Capture

The highly anticipated filmed London production of 'The Prince of Egypt - the Musical' is coming to cinemas on October 19th. Today, Universal Studios and DreamWorks released a brand new trailer for the filmed production. Watch the trailer below!

Based on the 1998 animated film and featuring an expanded Stephen Schwartz score, the filmed production is set to premiere in UK cinemas on October 19th. The special event will subsequently be available in other locations, and it will also be released on VOD/streaming platforms in the near future.

The musical was captured live at London's Dominion Theatre by STEAM Motion & Sound ("Waitress," "Aladdin," "Kinky Boots," "Heathers the Musical") for Universal Content Group and will be distributed to cinemas by Trafalgar Releasing (known for the recent recordings of "Anything Goes", and "The King and I").



The film features Luke Brady as Moses, Liam Tamne as Ramses, Christine Allado as Tzipporah, and Alexia Khadime as Miriam. The recorded performance will make its debut in cinemas across the UK & Ireland with other locations to be announced soon. Cinema showings include an evening screening on Thursday, October 19th, and a matinee on Sunday, October 22nd. Additional showings may be scheduled in specific locations based on demand.

While the official ticket sale date for the film is September 7th, select cinemas have already begun selling tickets.

Picturehouse has already started selling tickets for both October 19th and October 22nd at the following locations: Ashford, Cambridge Arts, Exeter, Henley-On-Thames Regal, Liverpool Fact, London Bromley, London Crouch End, London East Dulwich, London Finsbury Park, London Greenwich, London West Norwood, Norwich Cinema City, Oxford Phoenix, Southampton Harbour Lights, and York City Screen.






The musical 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.

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.
