The producers of the UK & Ireland tour of Grease have released a statement addressing racist abuse directed towards members of the cast. 

The statement read: 

The producers of Grease are extremeley proud of the diversity of our company, and we are deeply disturbed that racist abuse has been directed towards them. 

We want to make this clear - we have zero tolerance for such behaviour and are truly appalled that this happened. 

We stand with our company, especially those fo teh global majority who all bring immense talent and dedication to the stage every performance. 

There is no place for hate at Rydell High, and any individuals who believe otherwise are not welcome.
