JOINT STATEMENT

Blackpool and Fylde Light Opera Company (BFLOC) and the Grand Theatre will resume the run of the musical production of Grease this evening (Friday 3 June) and will perform both a matinee and an evening performance on Saturday 4 June.

Thursday evening’s production was halted due to a serious incident when a young man fell from height into the aisle of the theatre stalls.  The police and ambulance attended and the young man is being treated in hospital.

Phil Chapman, Chairman of BFLOC, said ‘this has obviously been a shocking and upsetting incident. Thankfully, we understand his injuries are not life-threatening and our thoughts are with the young man and his family. After consulting both members of the production company and the theatre staff, together we have decided that the show will go on’.

Ruth Eastwood, Chief Executive of the Grand Theatre said ‘This has been a very difficult situation for all concerned.  The theatre is working with all the relevant authorities to investigate the matter with due diligence.  Lots of hard work has gone into creating the show and the company and the young man’s family have received numerous messages of support via social media and the theatre will offer any support we can’.
