If you’re wanting to be at the heart of a show at the Dominion, you’ll want to book tickets at the front of the stalls or the front of the circle. Book these seats to guarantee that fewer people will be in front of you, meaning you can be immersed in every moment that’s taking place on the stage.

Seats further away from the stage are cheaper, and as it’s a large venue with a deep stage, you’ll be guaranteed an excellent view wherever you decide to sit in the auditorium.

When you book The Prince of Egypt tickets with us, you’ll be able to pick your seats on an interactive seating plan, so you’ll be able to see every seat available for your desired performance.
