Show Runs September 20, 2018 – October 6, 2018

Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. An eight-year run on Broadway and two subsequent revivals, along with innumerable school and community productions place Grease among the world’s most popular musicals.

Tuesday, March 20 – 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 22 – 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
If needed, callbacks will be held on Saturday, March 24 – 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

We welcome anyone between the ages of 16 to mid-30s to audition for the high school roles. No roles have been precast.

DANNY ZUKO: Male (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 (Range: Soprano, A3–F#5)
New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent

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

FRENCHY: Female (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (Range: Alto, C4–C5)
The best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny.

EUGENE FLORCZYK: Male (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 (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible)
A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher

PATTY SIMCOX: Female 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 (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 (Rage: Tenor, A3–C5)
A Radio Voice
