Productions associated with either Disney or Dreamworks are rarely considered cheap in either the size of the production or the ticket price especially at weekends and during peak times such as school holidays. Having said that the Dominion Theatre is a very large venue to fill for 8 shows every single week which should mean that if you are flexible with dates and can go midweek then good value tickets to The Prince Of Egypt should definitely be able to be found if you look and have a little patience.
The Dominion Theatre does not have many seats that feature restrictions to the view and there is no problem from either pillars or the overhang from the circle which is a blessing. The best tickets for The Prince Of Egypt are generally located towards the centre of the auditorium in the stalls or front centre of the circle with prices getting cheaper the further to the back or sides you get. It is always advisable to check the seating plan before you book to ensure that you get a clear view from your seat. All tickets with restrictions to the view should be clearly marked as either 'Restricted View' or 'R/V' both online and also on the ticket itself to give you peace of mind about your purchase before seeing the show.
As there are not many seats with restrictions in the Dominion Theatre but there are quite a few different price bands it is strongly advisable to study the seating plan in detail before buying tickets to The Prince Of Egypt. Each price band has to have a cut off point by default and very often you can get two seats next to each other or one in front of the other that will have pretty much the exact same view of the stage that feature a large difference in price! If you can book for midweek performances and look for value within the different price ranges of the tickets you will find it and could save money on your purchase.
The West End is very much a supply and demand business and even the most popular shows in London will always have quiet weeks. If you are looking for the best value and the most bang for your buck when booking The Prince Of Egypt tickets it is recommended to look at the naturally quiet weeks of the year such as late January or straight after the February half term holiday which is a great time to see any West End show on a budget. It is unlikely that discounts will be found at the box office itself however the official online ticket agencies and the shops in and around Leicester Square will usually have bargains and discounts in place during these weeks.
