Got the gal.

COLUMN: In our opinion; Editorial footnote

There is nothin' like a dame - and nothin' like a diamond ring, either.

The orchestra for "South Pacific" had played "Some Enchanted Evening" for the last time and the cast had taken their bows, but the romance wasn't quite finished at the Hanover Theatre Friday night.

Actor Erik Cheski - still in costume as the rollicking sailor Stewpot in the traveling production - called his girlfriend Caitlin Scafati to the stage. The company lowered a banner that said "Will you marry me?" He dropped to his knees and popped the question, and the packed house took its cue and clapped happily when she said yes.

It wasn't a distant isle bathed in a magical sunset, but Worcester's glittering Hanover played its supporting role well for the surprise real-life marriage proposal.
