Last June, the West End production of The Prince of Egypt announced the return at the Dominion Theatre from 1 November 2020, provided it is safe to do so and in line with government advice.
The show, which was due to end its run in October 2020, extended the run until 4 September 2021 to make up for cancelled performances due to the pandemic. The musical was forced shut almost immediately after the Press Night in March.
Producers have now announced that the show will not come back until February 2021: “In line with UK Government advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), performances of THE PRINCE OF EGYPT are cancelled until Wednesday 10 February 2021. If further cancellations are necessary, they will continue to be announced in line with the latest advice.
If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for a cancelled performance on or before 10 February 2021, please be assured that the theatre will contact you directly to arrange an exchange, credit note or refund.
If you have booked via a ticket agent, they will also be in contact with you directly. As you can imagine, we have an unprecedented number of ticket orders which we are processing in strict date order of performance.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as the current circumstances mean that it may not be possible to process all tickets within our usual 14 days. Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.
In order for us to serve our audiences as best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 10 February 2021, but please be reassured that if we do have to officially cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your ticket provider. We will continue to provide updates as additional information becomes available.
Tickets are currently on sale for performances from Thursday 11 February 2021 and performances will officially resume pending UK Government advice”, they said.
