In a post on her Instagram Goebel thanked fans and said that a week before rehearsals started for the show she got into a car accident and became injured.

“As you climb the mountain of your dreams, you will be greatly challenged, but your passion strength and love for what you do will override anything standing in your way,” Goebel said on the platform.

“I am so honoured and I will continue to dedicate my life to this art form.”
