West End and television leading man, Lee Mead, stars as the dashing Prince in His Majesty’s Theatre’s performance of Snow White later this year.
The Holby City actor joins Aberdeen’s panto favourites Alan McHugh and Jordan Young in the Disney classic 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.”
Best-known for winning the BBC talent show Any Dream Will Do, Lee Mead won the title role in the West End revival of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to rave reviews.
No stranger to pantomime, Lee has had lead roles in Wicked and Legally Blonde in the West End, released several solo albums and toured extensively.
Aberdeen Performing Arts Chief Executive Jane 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 and it will be a joy to see him alongside the much-loved comedy dream team of Jordan and Alan.”
Alan will star as Nurse Nellie MacDuff. The Taggart, Limmy’s Show and Take the High Road star has also appeared on stage in I Dreamed a Dream and Sunset Song.
Snow White will be brought to life with an abundance of comedy, sensational song and dance numbers, fabulous costumes and stunning scenery.
There’ll be a magical mirror, seven friendly dwarfs, a beautiful princess, a handsome prince and plenty of audience participation as audiences outwit the Wicked Queen and let love prevail in this glittering festive treat for all ages.
