Some day your prince will come … and it will be Holby City star Lee Mead in His Majesty’s panto this Christmas.
The West End leading man will play the dashing prince in Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.
He will be joining Aberdeen’s panto favourites Alan McHugh and Jordan Young in the festive treat from December 1.
Lee said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining Alan and Jordan and all the team at the annual HMT panto in Aberdeen this year.
“I’m really looking forward to coming to a theatre that’s renowned for having such fantastic audiences and a city that I’m very much looking forward to exploring over Christmas.
“I can’t wait to get started.”
Lee found national fame when he won the BBC talent show Any Dream Will Do, picking up the starring role in a West End revival of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He won rave reviews for his role in 2007 before going on to take the lead in shows such as Wicked and Legally Blonde in the West End.
From 2014 to 2016, Lee starred as Ben “Lofty” Chiltern in Casualty before joining Holby City last year to reprise the role.
Recently he has been touring with his new album, 10 Years.
Aberdeen Performing Arts chief executive Janie Spiers said: “We are so excited to welcome Lee Mead to HMT this year for our wonderful pantomime, Snow White.
“Lee certainly fits the bill as a dashing prince – he will bring a wealth of experience and star quality to the stage.
“It will be a joy to see him alongside the much-loved comedy dream team of Jordan and Alan.”
Tickets for Snow White, with Alan as the dame Nurse Nellie MacDuff and Jordan as Muddles, are on sale now.
