The Prince of Egypt – The Story
Ancient Egypt provides the backdrop to our tale with the biblical story of two brothers, Moses and Rameses at it’s heart. Rameses is the new Pharaoh of Egypt but his brother, Moses, discovers that his roots are far more lowly! When Moses discovers that his roots come from the Jewish nation and his family were slaves he leads an uprising to free his people. The rest, as they say, is history!

The Prince of Egypt – ticket and hotel packages
The Dominion Theatre is right on the junction of Oxford Stree and Charing Cross Road and Tottenham Court Road. Just behind the Dominion Theatre is the three star St Giles Hotel. With excellent facilities including restaurants, bar, pool and huge gym, it really is a great base for The Prince of Egypt theatre breaks.
If you are looking for a 4 star hotel within walking distance of The Prince of Egypt, then the Thistle Holborn, is a lovely Bloomsbury townhouse, but for just £25 more on certain nights, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire, actually in Leicester Square, is the height of comfort, in the heart of Theatreland, for that very special occassion.
If price is critical, but you still want to stay central, then The Royal National Hotel near Russell Square is close by and also has the added benefit of being halfway between the Dominion Theatre and the train stations of St Pancras and Kings Cross.
