Second star to the right and straight on till morning. That’s what Peter Pan promised his Wendy tonight at the Hydro. The cast and crew of Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story wishes them a safe and happy flight together.
Fans watching Peter Pan: The Never Ending Story at the Hydro Arena were given an unexpected fairy tale ending when the show’s lead, Dutch actor Sandor Stürbl proposed on stage to his co-star and girlfriend of two years, Scots actress Lilly Jane Young.
Sandor, 28, halted the show’s final number to say: “normally the show would end with Peter Pan giving Wendy a kiss, but tonight is not a normal show.”
“This is not Peter Pan giving Wendy a kiss, this is Sandor Stürbl giving the love of his life…something much, much more special.”
The romantic actor then stunned the 4,300-strong Hydro Crowd by getting down on one knee and popping the question to a tearful Lilly Jane, whose “Yes” raised the roof.
Peter Pan: The Never Ending Story completes its UK tour at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Wednesday and Thursday (15th and 16th January).
