An actor at the Boardmore Playhouse at Cape Breton University went off script during a performance of Broadway Showstoppers on Sunday to propose to his girlfriend who was performing in the show and she said yes.

Rob Bowden got down on one knee and said, “I just figured that since I was on my knee,” and asked Jill Taylor to marry him. The moment was captured by a friend and uploaded to Taylor’s Facebook page.

“I planned this with everyone,” Bowden continued in the video. “The sound guy, the light guy, the producer, director, choreographer, everybody — my sisters, my friends … just not you.”

Taylor, a teacher, looked out to the audience during the proposal and said, “Hi, mom, I know why you stayed for the seven o’clock show.”
