CASTING FOR:

Characters’ ages are not set in stone. Actors should consider roles if they feel they can represent the age ranges listed

DANNY ZUKO: Male, High School Teen (Range: tenor, D4– B5) The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong, and confident, with an air of easy-going charm.

SANDY DUMBROWSKI: Female, High School Teen (Range: Soprano, A3–F#5) New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent.

BETTY RIZZO: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto A3– C5) Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic, and outspoken, but vulnerable.

FRENCHY: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, A3–D5) A dreamer; good-natured but not too smart, she is 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: Female, High School Teen (Range Alto, C4–C5) The beauty of the Pink Ladies; pretty and looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth. She tries to act sophisticated.

JAN: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, A3-C5) Funny, loud, compulsive eater and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.

DOODY: Male, High School Teen (Range: Tenor, D4-A5) The youngest of the guys; small, boyish, and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. He also plays the guitar.

KENICKIE: Male, High School Teen (Range: Tenor, C4–F5) The second in command of the Burger Palace Boys; tough-looking, tattooed, surly and avoids any show of softness. He has an offbeat sense of humor.

SONNY LATIERRI: Male, High School Teen (Range: baritone, G3–A5) A member of the Burger Palace Boys; funny Italian-American, he is a braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he’s a real lady-killer.

ROGER: Male, High School Teen (Range: Tenor, D4-A5) The anything-for-a-laugh stocky type of boy; a clown who enjoys winding people up, he is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas.

CHA-CHA, aka CHARLENE DIGREGORIO: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, C4–C5) The best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loudmouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny.

EUGENE FLORCZYK: Male, High School Teen (Range: Tenor, A3– E5) The class valedictorian; physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. He’s a typical ‘apple-polisher’ – both smug and pompous, but gullible.

PATTY SIMCOX: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, D4- A4) A typical cheerleader; attractive, athletic, sure-of-herself, but can be given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. She’s a bit of a pain and unpopular with the Pink Ladies and can twirl a baton.

TEEN ANGEL: Male, Age Flexible (Range: Tenor, E4–F5) Frenchy’s suave and slick guardian angel, who encourages her to stay in school.

THE PINK LADIES: Ensemble (SATB) The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang who hang around with the Burger Palace Boys.

THE BURGER PALACE BOYS: Ensemble (SATB) A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers… or so they think.

RADIO VOICE: Male, Age Flexible (Range: Tenor, A3–C5) A Radio voice
