A Dramatic Proposal

Eddie and Kait met on stage playing a couple that gets engaged. They continued to develop their friendship during 4 more shows (oddly enough, all with a marriage theme), leading to a wonderful romance. Over a year after they first met a real engagement is made official on stage during a performance of The Drowsey Chaperone on April 30, 2011.

In the show, Eddie plays a harried producer (Mr. Feldzeig) who is desperately trying to break up his star's upcoming marriage in order to prevent her from leaving show business. When it is obvious that the wedding is a sure thing the rather talentless but persistent Kitty corners Mr. Feldzeig into letting her be the new star and into marrying her. On this particular night, Eddie has a surprise for both Kait (a chorus member in the show) and most of the cast. Rather than marry Kitty, Kait is pushed out on stage by her dance partner to find Eddie getting down on one knee. Kait says yes! This is where the video ends, but the wonders of the proposal didn't end there that evening.

Following this scence is a dance number involving four marriages, including Kitty and Feldzeig. However, after the proposal, Kait gets to join Eddie in the dance where they sing "I do" to each other. The couple will be saying their real "I do's" on September 24, 2011 on an outdoor stage in Iowa City.
