CAST OF CHARACTERS

DANNY: The leader of the “T-Birds.” Well-built, nice-looking, with an air of cool charm. Strong and confident. Must be a strong singer and dancer.

SANDY: Danny’s love interest. Sweet, wholesome, naïve, cute, but ends up turning into a really ‘hot chick’. Must be able to sing and move well.

RIZZO: Leader of the Pink Ladies. She is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but also vulnerable. Must be a strong singer and a confident actress.

FRENCHY: A dreamer. Good-natured , soft spoken, and a bit dumb. 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: The busty flirtatious one of the Pink Ladies. Tries to act sophisticated. Must sing and harmonise well.

JAN: Slightly chubby, compulsive eater. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys. Must sing and harmonise well.

KENICKIE: Second-in-command of the T-Birds. Tough-looking, tattooed, surly, avoids any show of softness. Has an off-beat sense of humour and in a volatile relationship with Rizzo. Must sing and move well.

DOODY: Youngest of the guys. Small, boyish, open, with a disarming smile and a hero worshipping attitude toward Danny. He also plays the guitar. Must be able to sing confidently.

ROGER: The “anything-for-a-laugh” stocky type. Full of mischief, half-baked schemes and ideas. A clown who enjoys putting other people on. Must sing and move well.

SONNY: A wheeler-dealer who thinks he’s a real lady-killer. Must sing/harmonise, and move well.

PATTY: A typical cheerleader at a middle-class American public high school. Attractive and athletic. Aggressive, sure of herself, given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. Catty, but in an All-American Girl sort of way.

She can also twirl a baton. A good dancer/mover needed for this role.
