We the cast, would like to congratulate AVEY who sent us a very heartfelt story who we felt matched the story of the show!
Here’s what she sent us:
My boyfriend and I met at Theatre school. We rarely talked as we weren’t in the same year and didn’t see each other much. After a year and a half of schooling we ended up doing a show together (both cast as ensemble members).
When we started rehearsals in the spring we were partnered in one scene of the show, so we started talking more. The scene was partner dancing and standing around conversing. Every time we did the scene we got to know more and more about each other because we were just in the background having a quiet conversation or a giggle to each other. Little did we know we were actually falling in like with each other.
Rehearsals followed through to tech week. Now at this point we had had alot of quality time together in that one scene. We would frequently have the same opinion on things, and smirk at the same things. Opening night came and the show ran for a couple weekends. Totally sub consciously we had fallen further in like with each other. It was the first time in my life that I wasn’t aware that I was seriously interested in him, and he says the same thing!
Closing night came. While ‘chatting’ in the background we would get closer and closer every night as I would jokingly whisper ‘sweet nothings’ in his ear. On the final show, something came over me that made me kiss him in that moment. We knocked teeth because we were both smiling. The scene moved onto another part where we slow danced together. We were pretty darn quiet! The he said “I have something to tell you”.. and grabs my face and kisses me! It was the sweetest thing ever.
Everyone was surprised to see the two of us start dating as we seemed like a completely unlikely duo. In fact we seemed much of the opposite. That is it only seemed. Many people’s opinions were false. We fit so well together!
We fell in love and we’ve been together ever since. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime. He’s a rare breed and I am so thankful he picked me.
He’s the guy who gives me flowers just because. He brings out the positive in every situation. He isn’t afraid of being silly. He watches romantic comedies with me. He doesn’t care if my hair is in a mess or done up. He makes me laugh. He accepts my flaws and habits. Most of all he loves me for me. He loves me because.
Good luck with your show! I’m looking forward to seeing it!
It’s easy to see why she deserved to have a romantic and enjoyable evening with the cast of I Love You Because on Valentine’s Day!!!
