‘Nutcracker’ Prince Pops The Question To Ballerina Girlfriend On Stage


By Meredith Ganzman
This proposal is right out of a “sugar plum” fairy tale.

"You mean so much to me, Allison Grace. Everyone who meets you, from our family out there in the balcony, all these dancers, Jill and everyone who helps out with these productions, they know how great of a person that you are, " Dalton Rupp-Meinert told his girlfriend on stage.

Dalton was playing the prince in this Kansas production of the “Nutcracker,” and he popped the question to his ballerina girlfriend, Allison Evans.

He's not a dancer, but he took on the role over the summer, as a part of his elaborate proposal plan.

By show time, he was more scared about remembering the intricate dance steps than whether or not his Allison would say yes.

She did of course, and now they can start planning the steps for the first dance at their wedding.
