 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)  The 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.

VINCE FONTAINE: Male, High School Teen (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible)
 A typical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran ‘Greaser.’

CHA-CHA, aka CHARLENE DIGREGORIO: Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, C4–C5) 
The best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loud mouth, 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.

 All-American, rock-star “greaser” student at Rydell High, whose real name is Clarence.

MISS LYNCH: Female, Age Flexible (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible)
 A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher.

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.

ENSEMBLE: Male/Female, Age 14+
