InterAct Congratulates THE WAR PARTY's Meghan Heimbecker On Recent Engagement (Live. Onstage. In Front of an Amazed Audience.)

Interesting and unexpected things happen on a regular basis when you work in theatre. And more often than not, they turn out to be better than anything even the most talented professional could create on stage.

Such was the case during the curtain call of the Saturday, November 15, performance of THE WAR PARTY, when featured actress Meghan Heimbecker received an extremely heartfelt (not to mention very memorable) proposal from her boyfriend, Chad Burkins. In front of several members of Meghan's family, and a theatre full of strangers, Chad popped up from the audience during Meghan's final bow only to pop out one of the most romantic proposals to have ever graced a theatrical stage. Meghan said, "yes," and an entirely new, and much more pleasant, meaning for the term "shock and awe" was born...

Everyone at InterAct congratulates Meghan and Chad
and wishes them the best of luck in their future together!
