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.

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 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.

JOHNNY CASINO: Male, High School Teen (Range: Tenor, G4-E5) 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.

DANCE ENSEMBLE: (6) Strong dancers who will be the driving force of the show. Partnering experience a plus.
