A pantomime lion turned into prince charming for a surprise on-stage proposal during Wednesday’s night pantomime at Hailsham Pavilion.
Dave Williams, who is playing Lion in ‘The Wizard of Oz Pantomime’ currently on at The Pavilion was relieved to hear ‘oh yes I will’ after getting down on one knee on stage, to propose to real life girlfriend Pamela Abell at the end of Wednesday’s show.
Mr Williams had kept quite about the proposal and only a few committee members and Pavilion staff knew about his secret plans.
Douglas Morgan, Chairman of Hailsham Theatres, said: “I am delighted for the pair of them, they are a wonderful couple.
“On behalf of everyone at Hailsham Theatres I would like to wish Dave and Pam all the best for a happy life together.”
The sell out run of The Wizard of Oz continues until Sunday, February 1.
