Kaylene (Brown) `98 and Thomas Williams `04 Even though Tom had zero theatre experience, and knew even less about Shakespeare, he still nailed his audition and was cast in the lead romantic role opposite me. After practicing the stage kiss in my car in the parking lot outside Heritage Hall, I realized I would never kiss another man again. A year later, he asked me to marry him on the Malone Theatre's stage. (To which my response was "Are you sure?") We will be married 23 years this year and we have two beautiful daughters.The picture is of Tom and me in the dressing room before the show. He was still in the "friend-zone" during that time, but I would soon change my mind on his relationship status with me.
