Full casting announced for The Prince of Egypt
| By Jade Ali
Today saw not only the final casting announcement for the new musical The Prince of Egypt but also the fabulous press launch, which was the production's first public outing. The event saw the incredible cast take to the stage along with director Scott Schwartz and iconic composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Stephen told us that along with 5 of the acclaimed songs from the DreamWorks Animation film there will be 10 new songs in the upcoming production! We were lucky enough to hear some of the new songs and some we already recognized today.
As well as the press launch which has us somehow even more excited for the London premiere of this brand-new show, and the full cast announcement, we are now privy to the first new set design illustration which has also just been released. Read below for all the new exciting information coming from The Prince of Egypt today.
