Breakdown

Seeking members of Actors’ Equity and nonunion actors. Performers of all ethnic and racial background are encouraged to attend. Casting: Cast of 9. All roles open.

Looking for versatile performers who sing and dance.

Actors auditioning for high school characters should be 18-25 and be able to play high school aged.

High Schoolers:

DANNY ZUKO: Male, The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong and confident, with an air of easy-going charm.

SANDY: Female, New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent.

RIZZO: Female, Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic, and outspoken but vulnerable.

FRENCHY: Female, 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, 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, Funny, loud, compulsive eater, and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.

DOODY: Male, 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, 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: Male, 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, 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, The best dancer at St. Bernadette's; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny.

EUGENE: Male, 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, 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.

Adults:

VINCE FONTAINE: Male, A typical 'teen audience' disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran 'Greaser.'

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

MISS LYNCH: Female, A no-nonsense, serious, loud English teacher.

TEEN ANGEL: Male, Frenchy's suave and slick guardian angel, who encourages her to stay in school.
