Matthew Pomeroy, who plays Aladdin, asked Natasha Lamb, who plays Jasmine, to marry him during the curtain call of their play. The two actors are a part of the production at De Montfort Hall in Leicester and had just finished a performance when Matthew went down on one knee and asked Natasha to be his wife.
It was scary. I hadn't worked out where to put the ring after my costume change for the finale as it didn't have pockets - so when I bowed I thought it would fall out the belt. I spend my life on stage - it's my happy place. Proposing on there fits me perfectly.

Matthew even arranged for their parents to be a part of the audience so they could witness this important moment. How adorable!
