A star of stage and screen is looking forward to exploring Rhyl when he brings the sound of the golden age of musicals to North Wales next week.
Lee Mead, the star of Joseph and His Technicolor Dreamcoat and Casualty, is bringing his Some Enchanted Evening show to the town's Pavilion Theatre on Friday, October 7.
The 35-year-old said: "I played in Llandudno four or five years ago and had a great gig there, but I haven't been to Rhyl yet.
"It's nice to be coming back to the region. It'll be exciting.
"I'm fond of getting to places early for the sound check and to have a chance to look around the area."
After Lee's success in clinching the title role in Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through the BBC talent show Any Dream Will Do in 2007, he played Caracticus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in the West Yorkshire Playhouse and Lofty in the BBC's Casualty.
"Because I played a nurse I got to avoid most of the medical terminology, which can be hard," he said.
"I only had to say things like 'tachycardic' and 'pulse 98'."
But his character was written out of the series - viewers saw Lofty wracked with guilt after another character died - so Lee could concentrate on his music and theatre work.
He's now looking forward to bringing his five-piece band to North Wales for the new show.
"I'm really proud of it," he said.
"It takes a lot of time to find the songs and arrange them, but it's worth it."
Fans will hear songs including Luck Be A Lady from Guys and Dolls from 1955, Singin' in the Rain from 1952, and Some Enchanted Evening from the 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific.
"It was a wonderful period for music," said Lee.
"There's another song we do called 'I'll See You In My Dreams'. People are quite shocked it's from 1929.
"Great songs do last, although sometimes you need to make them more modern."
Lee, who lives in Southend and has a six-year-old daughter, Betsy, also performs a duet with his guitarist Nick Pendry, who he met when he ran a cafe near Cardiff Castle.
"I was filming Casualty in Cardiff for two years," said Lee.
"There's a cafe opposite Cardiff Castle which Nick owned. We got on really well and I invited him on tour with me."
This winter, Lee will also play Prince Charming in Cinderella at the London Palladium alongside Nigel Havers and Amanda Holden.
