The Prince of Egypt is the retelling of the Book of Exodus, the story of Moses and Rameses. Raised as brothers in a Kingdom of privilege until a secret is uncovered which changes everything. One brother must rule his Kingdom as Pharoah and the other must stand up and free his people. How will they each take on their new roles and what will their destiny hold?

A few years ago we introduced Lillie and Ollie to the theatre with a visit to see Wicked which they adored as much as I do. Today we introduced Albie to our love of the theatre with a family trip to London to see The Prince of Egypt Musical.

Lillie, Ollie and Albie have all watched the Dreamworks Animation at home so they were familiar with the story and Albie has been learning all about the History of Egypt at school so this was the perfect time to see the show.

Albie was blown away as we walked through the doors of the Dominion Theatre and was excited for this new experience to begin. Since we had arrived early I was able to take him to the front of the theatre to show him where the band are below the stage – he thought this was ‘so cool’.

Our Experience of The Prince of Egypt Musical

From the first crack of the whip as the slaves and guards move onto the stage, we were hooked. We loved the choreography by Sean Cheeseman, the way the dancers moved their bodies to become the water carrying baby Moses, chariots to carry the competitive brothers, the burning bush and the undulating hills of the desert. It was remarkable and one of the things the children have talked about the most.

Albie loved the way the set changed with the hieroglyphs and the statues projected onto the curtains in the wings, it was so simple yet so effective – he was a little unsure of the ring of fire and when Moses released the waves onto the Egyptian army but the rest of us were seriously impressed, it was quite the spectacle.

The relationship between the brothers Moses and Ramses, played by Luke Brady and Liam Tamne was believable and infectious. You couldn’t help but smile along as they playfully teased each other and likewise, felt the deep hurt and emotion when their lives pulled them in different directions.

Of course, we can’t talk about a musical without mentioning the outstanding voices of the cast. My personal favourites being Deliver Us with Young Miriam (Mia Lakha), Queen Tuya (Debbie Kurup) and Yocheved (Mercedesz Csampi), Footprints on the Sand by Moses (Luke Brady), Through Heaven’s Eyes by Jethro (Clive Rowe) and the Midianites and When You Believe with Tzipporah (Christina Allado) and Miriam (Alexia Khadime). To be honest, I don’t think there was one song that I didn’t enjoy.

Towards the end of the show, I found myself thinking “I am definitely coming to see this again”, so far this has only happened with a handful of shows for me: Wicked, Lion King, Les Miserables, Jersey Boys and the Phantom of the Opera so I was sad to remember that the show ends on 8th January 2022.
