Schools now have until 31st October to see The Prince of Egypt at London’s Dominion Theatre, which has extended its run by seven weeks with 100,000 new tickets on sale.
The production, which covers subjects such as , RE, English, History and Geography, offers discounted rates for schools and showcases a cast of 43 performers to help bring the ancient story of Moses to life.
Suitable for Key Stage 2 and above, groups of ten or more pupils will receive special rates to the show which includes Luke Brady as Moses, Liam Tamne as Ramses, Christine Allado as Tzipporah and Alexia Khadime as Miriam.

The Dominion Theatre is also a four minute walk from the British Museum, which includes the Egyptian Rooms and provides other resources and activities for schools to compliment a visit to the show.
