ABOUT THE SHOW
Time to dust off your leather jackets and poodle skirts and get ready to rock ‘n roll! Bad boy Danny Zuko and good girl Sandy Dumbrowski had a secret summer romance, but back at Rydell High School with cliques and peer-pressure, everything is different. The Burger Palace Boys and Pink Ladies sing and dance their way through hit songs such as “Greased Lightnin’,” “We Go Together,” and “Born to Hand-Jive” as the young couple tries to rekindle those “Summer Nights.”
A large cast of individuals ages 14+
- Sandy Dumbrowski: Danny’s love interest; New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent
- Betty Rizzo: Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable
- Frenchy: A dreamer; good-natured but not too smart, she is heavily made up, fussy about her appearance, particularly her hair
- Marty: Looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth. She tries to act sophisticated
- Jan: Energetic, bubbly, and eating all the time; awkward, but loud and pushy with the Pink Ladies, shy with the boys.
- Patty Simcox: A typical all-American cheerleader; attractive and athletic; aggressive, sure of herself, given to burst of disconcerting enthusiasm
- “Cha-Cha” Charlene DiGregorio: The best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; feisty and overly confident, she wins the dancing competition with Danny.
- Miss Lynch: Rydell High School Headmistress; strict, demanding English teacher, who would like to consider herself “hip,” but she definitely isn’t.
- Blanche: Miss Lynch’s faithful secretary; Miss Lynch considers her more like a servant; high-pitched
- Danny Zuko: The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong and confident, with an air of easy-going charm
- Kenickie: Second in command of the Burger Palace Boys; toughlooking, surly and avoids any show of softness. He has an offbeat sense of humor
- Doody: The youngest of the guys; small, boyish and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshiping attitude towards the other guys.
- Sonny: Braggart and wheeler-dealer; a wannabe tough guy who thinks he’s a real lady-killer
- Roger: The anything-for-a-laugh type of boy; enjoys winding people up, full of mischief and always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas
- Eugene Florczyk: The class valedictorian; physically awkward, a typical ‘apple-polisher’ – both smug and pompous, but gullible
- Vince Fontaine: A typical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran ‘Greaser’
- Johnny Casino: A student at Rydell who leads a rock ‘n roll band and likes to think of himself as real rock ‘n roll idol
- Teen Angel: A good-looking, falsetto-voiced crooner; Frenchy’s suave and slick guardian angel, who encourages her to stay in school
