Did you know that Olivia Newton-John was born in Cambridge? So it's only fitting that our fair city should get to host this beloved musical next spring – and you could be among its cast!


Characters

Danny Zuko

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

Sings: solo, duet, group numbers.


Sandy Dumbrowski

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

Sings: solo, duet, group numbers.


Betty Rizzo

Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable. Sings: 2 solos, group numbers.


Frenchy

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.

Sings: group numbers.


Marty

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.

Sings: solo, group numbers.


Jan

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

Sings: duet, group numbers.


Doody

The youngest of the guys; small, boyish and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. He plays the guitar. Sings: solo, duet, group numbers.


Kenickie

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 humour.

Sings: solo, group numbers.


Sonny LaTierri

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. Sings: group numbers.


Roger

An anything-for-a-laugh stocky type; a clown who enjoys winding people up, he is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes. Sings: solo, duet, group.


Eugene Florczyk

The class valedictorian; physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. He’s a typical teacher’s pet – both smug and pompous, but gullible.

Sings: group numbers.


Johnny Casino

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

Sings: solo.


Teen Angel

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

Sings: Solo.


Patty Simcox

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.

Sings: group numbers.


Vince Fontaine

Atypical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran “Greaser”.


Cha-Cha, aka Charlene DiGregorio

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


Miss Lynch

A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher.


The Pink Ladies

The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang who hang around with the Burger Palace Boys.


The Burger Palace Boys

A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers… or so they think.
