Hit West End musical The Prince of Egypt to revert to full capacity from 23 July, with stringent hygiene and covid-secure protocols in place.
Based on the classic DreamWorks Animation film, the smash-hit musical will revert back to a full audience this week. Following the current temporary suspension of performances due to the government track and trace legislation, the production is set to play three socially distanced performances on Wednesday 21 July and Thursday 22 July before reverting to full capacity.
The production will continue to maintain stringent hygiene and COVID-secure audience protocols throughout the venue (including timed arrivals, increased airflow and the expected and recommended wearing of face coverings).
The production was previously due to continue socially distanced audiences until 4 September 2021.
In a joint statement, producers DreamWorks Theatricals, Michael McCabe and Neil Laidlaw said: “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. In the meantime, we’d like to thank our incredible audiences who have so effusively welcomed The Prince of Egypt back to the West End and for all the messages received by the Dominion Theatre praising the exemplary safety protocols already in operation.”
