Character descriptions and requirements:
DANNY: (M) – The leader of the “T-Birds” Well-built, nice looking, with an air of cool easy-going charm. Strong and confident.
SANDY: (F) – Danny’s love interest. Sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, like Sandra Dee of the “Gidget” movies.
THE “PINK LADIES” (F) – The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang that hangs around with the “T-Birds”
RIZZO: (F) – Leader of the “Pink Ladies”. She is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable.
FRENCHY: (F) – A dreamer. Good-natured but not bright. Heavily made-up, fussy about her appearance, particularly her hair. She can’t wait to finish high school so she can be a beautician.
MARTY: (F) – The “beauty” of the Pink Ladies. Pretty, looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth.
Tries to act sophisticated.
JAN: (F) – Chubby, compulsive eater. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.
THE “T-BIRDS” (M) – A super-cool group of high school wheeler-dealers… or so they think.
KENICKIE: (M) – Second-in-command of the “T-Birds”. Tough-looking, tattooed, surly, avoids any show of softness. Has an off-beat sense of humour.
DOODY: (M) – Youngest of the guys. Small, boyish, open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude toward the other guys. He also plays the guitar.
ROGER: (M) – The “anything-for-a-laugh” stocky type. Full of mischief, half-baked schemes and ideas. A clown who enjoys putting other people on.
SONNY: (M) – A braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he’s a real ladykiller.
PATTY: (F) – A typical cheerleader at a middle-class American public high school. Attractive and athletic. Aggressive, sure of -herself, given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. Catty, but in an All-American Girl sort of way. She can also twirl a baton.
CHA-CHA: (F) – Slovenly, loud-mouthed and homely. Takes pride in being “the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s.”
EUGENE: (M) – The class valedictorian. Physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. An apple-polisher, smug and pompous but gullible.
VINCE FONTAINE: (M) – A typical “teen audience” radio disc jockey. Slick, egotistical, fast-talking. A veteran “greaser.”
JOHNNY CASINO: (M) – A “greaser” student at Rydell who leads a rock ‘n’ roll band and likes to think of himself as a real rock ‘n’ roll idol.
TEEN ANGEL: (M) – A good-looking falsetto- voiced, Fabian-look-alike. A singer who would have caused girls to scream and riot back in 1958.
MISS LYNCH: (F) – An old maid English teacher.
+ CHORUS ROLES AVAILABLE.
It’s 1959 and Rydell High’s senior class of 1959 is a motley bunch of teens. There’s the hot-rodding “T-Birds” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies”. This classic musical, made famous in the movies by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, features the story of Danny Zuko, leader of the “T-Birds” and innocent, new girl, Sandy, as they try to relive their summer romance with no help from their friends. Grease has a killer soundtrack of songs that includes Greased Lightnin’, We Go Together, You’re the One That I Want and Grease Is the Word. Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals. PAHQ’s production of Grease, with permission from ORiGiN Theatrical, will contain all the classic and much-beloved songs that were written specifically for the movie.
