Ariana Grande provided her father Ed Butera with backstage access while watching Spamalot featuring her boyfriend Ethan Slater in New York City.
The 30-year-old singer shared a video clip on Instagram Stories on Sunday showing Ed, 65, backstage at the St. James Theatre.
Ed had his back to the camera as Ariana caught him goofing around and shared it with her roughly 380 million followers.
‘Don’t touch the props,’ Ariana wrote as Ed clapped two round objects to make galloping sounds.
‘Wait, what?,’ Ariana said while laughing.

Ed reposted his daughter’s clip on his own Instagram Stories for his roughly 179,000 followers and wrote, ‘So much fun!’
Ethan, 31, has a starring role in the Broadway revival of Spamalot as The Historian/The Prince and Ariana has seen it multiple times since it opened in November.
Ariana recently appeared to pay tribute to their romance with a unique holiday celebration.
The singer, who began dating the Broadway star soon after her split from Dalton Gomez, took to social medial last week to share snaps of her recent Christmas celebrations.
Alongside photos of her FaceTiming with family and lounging with puppies, Ariana gave a peek at an ornament of a can of SPAM.
The hilarious display seemingly was a nod to Ethan’s role in Spamalot, Broadway’s new revival adapted from the 1975 film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
It was first reported back in July that Ariana and Ethan were dating, amid her divorce from Dalton, 28, and his from wife Lilly, 29.
Ariana’s divorce was finalized on October 6.

In November, it was reported that the new lovebirds had taken their relationship to the next level, with the Dangerous Woman singer currently living with her Wicked co-star in New York City, as he performs in Spamalot.
The pair met in December 2022 on the UK set of the film adaptation of the smash-hit Broadway musical Wicked, in which Ariana plays Glinda – the good witch – alongside Ethan as munchkin Boq.
Both couples announced they had split within a few days of each other back in July, with Ariana announcing her separation from Dalton just three days before confirming her new relationship with Ethan, who then filed for divorce from Lilly.
He cited irreconcilable differences and asked for joint custody of their newborn son.
Lilly has since damned Ariana in a series of disparaging interviews, telling Page Six the songstress is ‘Not a girl’s girl’ and adding blisteringly that ‘My family is just collateral damage’ to her.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, the estranged spouse of the Broadway star said she is determined to move on with her life as a single mother, without her ex-husband.
‘I am focused on rebuilding a life for our son,’ she said. ‘This is what I am trying to do and this is my only focus.’
Lilly’s admission came as a source close to Ariana and Ethan claimed that the singer ‘hung out’ with Lilly and her newborn baby multiple times before her romance with her co-star was revealed – and even told those around her how much she ‘wanted a baby one day’ after bonding with Lilly and Ethan’s.
An insider close to Lilly and Ethan alleged to DailyMail.com that Ariana and Ethan’s relationship has taken a brutal toll on the new mother – who spent time with the singer on multiple occasions while visiting her husband on-set in London.
‘Lilly hung out with Ethan and Ariana so many times,’ the insider claimed. ‘Ariana met their baby and even held him.
‘They had dinners together in London – and Ariana told Lilly that she wanted to have a baby one day and that she couldn’t wait to start a family.’
According to the source, Lilly and her son traveled to London to visit Ethan on the set of Wicked this April – just eight months after the baby’s birth.
The insider claimed that Lilly discovered her husband had been having an affair with Ariana after that visit – but that she and Ethan made the decision to try and ‘put it behind them and work on their marriage,’ only for her to later discover that he had continued his romance with the singer.
