Producers of The Prince of Egypt have given an update on its audience capacity prior to the reopening of the show at the Dominion Theatre. The Prince Of Egypt will now play to full capacity audiences from July 23rd, which has now been brought forward by five weeks.
Performances of the show are currently suspended until July 21st. There will be socially distanced performances on 21st and 22nd July before ongoing full capacity shows resume from 23rd July. Tickets to The Prince Of Egypt are on sale now.
Neil Laidlaw and Michael McCabe said in a joint statement: “In adherence of the latest UK Government advice and concurrently with all other West End theatres, we will now begin reverting to full capacity audiences. In order to maintain the maximum safety and comfort of our audiences, and to best protect the Dominion Theatre’s fantastic frontline staff, we will be maintaining stringent hygiene protocols and COVID-secure measures throughout the venue, including timed arrivals and increased airflow. The wearing of face coverings by audiences will be expected and recommended, unless medically exempt. All staff interacting with the public will be wearing face coverings.”
The Prince of Egypt reopened with a socially distanced and reduced capacity at the Dominion Theatre earlier in July, and has already seen performances suspended temporarily due to a cast member receiving a positive test for Covid-19.
Based on the DreamWorks animation adaptation of the biblical story of how Moses rose up to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, The Prince Of Egypt will feature a 154-strong company that includes Luke Brady in the role of Moses, Christine Allado as Tzipporah Liam Tamne as Ramses, and Alexia Khadime as Miriam. The show features music by Stephen Schwartz.
