Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical fame is all set to play Rizzo in tonight’s Grease: Live, but sadly, that excitement has been dimmed by some terrible events. After a six month battle with Stage 4 cancer, Hudgens’ dad, Greg Hudgens, passed away this morning. The actress took to Twitter to share the sad news:

Despite this unfortunate timing, Hudgens will still perform tonight on the Fox musical. She is dedicating the performance to her late father.
