The hit Filipino musical ended its fifth week run with a lovely surprise when audience members Axel Zapanta and Joi Tuazon shared a romantic proposal on stage, surrounded by the cast and crew of the musical. Shortly after the curtain call on Sunday, May 21, lead cast member Gab Pangilinan called the couple to go on stage for winning the photo opportunity raffle staged by the entire cast.
Before the photo-taking began, Zapanta went down on one knee as he asked Tuazon’s hand in marriage. “I want to know if gusto mo bang sumama?” He asked, drawing loud cheers from the cast and audience members.
“I promise to love you sa tanghali, sa gabi, at umaga,” he added in reference to the songs from the musical. The proposal ended with a sweet yes from Tuazon while the cast sang “Ligaya” to celebrate the romantic moment.
The young couple has been together for nine years when Zapanta decided to take their relationship to the next level. He wanted to make it extra special by fulfilling the ultimate dream of his fiancée, who is a huge fan of the musical, to meet its cast. After reaching out to Full House Theater Company for help, he pulled off the surprise proposal during the most unforgettable show of their lives.
