More casting is here for the upcoming U.K. premiere staging of The Prince of Egypt, arriving in London's West End next year. The previously announced production, directed by Scott Schwartz and featuring 10 new songs by the film's composer, Stephen Schwartz, will play the Dominion Theatre beginning on February 5, 2020 with an opening night set for February 25.

Newly announced cast members include Gary Wilmot (Me and My Girl) as Jethro, Tanisha Spring (Caroline, or Change) as Nefertari, Silas Wyatt-Barke (Twelfth Night) as Aaron, Joe Dixon (Imperium I & II) as Seti, Debbie Kurup (Blues in the Night) as Queen Tuya and Adam Pearce (Evita) as Hotep.

They join the previously announced Luke Brady (Sweeney Todd) as Moses, Liam Tamne (The Light in the Piazza) as Ramses, Christine Allado (Hamilton) as Tzipporah and Alexia Khadime (Wicked) as Miriam.

With a book by Philip LaZebnik, The Prince of Egypt follows two young men, raised together as brothers in a kingdom of privilege, who find themselves suddenly divided by a secret past. One must rule as Pharaoh, the other must rise up and free his true people; both face a destiny that will change history forever.

Schwartz's new score will be complemented by his Academy Award-winning song from the film, "When You Believe," in addition to "Deliver Us," "All I Ever Wanted" and "Through Heaven's Eyes."

Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
