Family Day Presentation

Prince of Egypt

Directed by Brenda Chapman & Steve Hickner

US | 99 minutes | 1998

Born a slave and set adrift in the river, Moses (voiced by Val Kilmer) is raised as the son of Pharaoh Seti (Patrick Stewart, MJFF 2014) and is a fitting rival for his stepbrother Rameses (Ralph Fiennes). When he learns of his roots—in a knockout sequence in which hieroglyphics come alive—he flees to the desert, where he finds his destiny and heeds God's calling to free the slaves from Egypt. With songs written by Oscar-winner Stephen Schwartz and sung by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, The Prince of Egypt covers all the classic story points of the story of Moses, including the ten plagues and the parting of the Red Sea. The all-star cast includes Val Kilmer, Sandra Bullock, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ralph Fiennes, Helen Mirren, Steve Martin, Martin Short, Jeff Goldblum, Danny Glover, and Patrick Stewart.

Featuring a special performance by the New World Symphony Connection.
