Sioux Falls Actor Runs Off Stage To Marry Local Couple
It's always fun to go watch a musical or any production around the Sioux Empire. Sioux Falls really has talent! But little does the audience know that this talent goes beyond the stage. In one actor's case, it goes right to the lobby of the Orpheum Theater Center in Sioux Falls.
In between acts of The Premiere Playhouse's production of A Christmas Carol, one of the actors took time to marry a Sioux Falls couple during intermission on Wednesday evening. It was truly a Christmas fairytale for the couple.
Our partners at Dakota News Now is reporting that actor and wedding officiant Jake Cox married Victoria and Tyler Johnson during the intermission of A Christmas Carol. The best part? Jake stayed in character as Mr. Fezziwig while he performed the ceremony.
Jake Cox explains to Dakota News Now the couple wanted to get married on December 28th. However, due to his commitments to A Christmas Carol production, he thought he wouldn't be able to help Victoria and Tyler Johnson. Jake jokingly said they should just get married during the show. Luckily, the couple took his suggestion seriously. “Almost as a joke, I suggested they come to the play, and I’d marry them during intermission. They surprised me by immediately saying yes," says Cox.
With a little bit of Christmas magic, Jake was able to marry Victoria and Tyler in front of family members who also attended the show.
If anyone is looking to have their wedding during Jake's next show, he does own and operate Jacob Cox - Wedding Officiant business in Sioux Falls. Congratulations to the happy couple!
