What An Enchanted Evening


Once upon a time, there was a girl who dreamed of LOVE!

She wanted to know what the future held for her, so she went to Madame Cleo to find out what wonderful things were to come . . .


She predicted a most unbelieveable and magical future for a young girl named Deanna! It included a handsome, dashing speciman of a man who would sweep her off her feet and fill her life with wonder.




Her handsome young man awoke to feel that his destiny had come.

They spent a year together--and as their love grew for one another, he knew that it was time for the next step!



It all started when Prince Brooks gave Princess Deanna the most amazing Christmas gift, EVER! She opened what she thought was a book, to have the pages reveal an all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles to see WICKED!!



As she danced her dance of joy, she couldn't imagine anything more perfect. But little did she know. . .



Deanna was content after a delicious dinner at PF Changs. She was anticipating an amazing evening at Wicked.



But she was estatic, after Brooks took a detour to beautiful Griffiths Park, and surprised her with a most beautiful, romantic, and creative proposal. Does she look excited, or what??




Of course, the answer was YES! That is, after some tears and screams, the answer was YES--Brooks almost missed the answer in all of the excitement!



As if all of this wasn't enough--Brooks and Deanna raced off in their white Buick to catch the opening act of WICKED!



The show definitely met all of their expectations. It was MAGICAL!



After seeing the exhileration on their faces after such an amazing evening, someone from the crowd yelled out, "Brooks, you have just won the hand of the fair maiden, Deanna. What are you going to do now??"

Brooks yelled back, "I'm going to DISNEYLAND!"
