The new musical has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Philip LaZebnik and is based on the DreamWorks animation film of the same name.

Joining the previously announced Scott Schwartz and choreographer Sean Cheesman are set designer Kevin Depinet, costume designer Ann Hould-Ward, lighting designer Mike Billings, sound designer Gareth Owen, projection designer Jon Driscoll and illusion designer Chris Fisher.

Orchestrations are from August Eriksmoen with musical supervision and arrangements by Dominick Amendum, musical direction by Dave Rose and casting by Jim Arnold.

Tickets for The Prince of Egypt will go on public sale at 10am on Monday 3 June. The show begins in previews at the Dominion Theatre on 5 February 2020, with opening night on 25 February.

The musical features ten new songs by Schwartz as well as songs from the original film including "Deliver Us" and "All I Ever Wanted".
