SEEKING:

 

DANNY ZUKO: 18-25 to play high school age. The leader of the “Burger Palace Boys.” Well-built, nice-looking, with an air of cool easygoing charm. Strong and confident.

 

SANDY DUMBROWSKI: 18-25 to play high school age. Danny’s love interest. Sweet, wholesome, naïve, cute, like Sandra Dee of the “Gidget” movies.

 

KENICKIE: 18-25 to play high school age. Second-in-command of the Burger Palace Boys. Tough-looking, tattooed, surly, avoids any show of softness. Has an off-beat sense of humor.

 

DOODY: 18-25 to play high school age. Youngest of the Burger Palace guys. He’s charming with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude toward the other guys. Guitar a plus.

 

ROGER: 18-25 to play high school age.  The “anything-for-a-laugh” type full of mischief, half-baked schemes and ideas. He’s a clown who enjoys putting other people on.

 

SONNY LATIERRI: 18-25 to play high school age. Italian-looking, with shiny black hair and dark oily skin. A braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he’s a real lady-killer.

 

 

BETTY RIZZO: 18-25 to play high school age. Leader of the Pink Ladies. She is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable. Italian, with unconventional good looks.

 

FRENCHY: 18-25 to play high school age. The dreamer of the Pink Ladies. She’s good-natured, but not the brightest. Heavily made-up, fussy about her appearance—particularly her hair. She can’t wait to finish high school so she can be a beautician.

PATTY SIMCOX: 18-25 to play high school age. A typical cheerleader at a middle-class American public high school. She’s attractive and athletic, aggressive and sure of herself, given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. She’s also catty, but in an All-American Girl sort of way. She can also twirl a baton.

 

EUGENE FLORCZYK: 18-25 to play high school age. The class valedictorian. Physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. An apple-polisher, smug and pompous but gullible.

 

VINCE FONTAINE: Late 20s-30s. A typical “teen audience” radio disc jockey. Slick, egotistical, fast-talking. A veteran “greaser.”

 

TEEN ANGEL: Timeless. A good-looking falsetto voiced, Fabian-look-alike. A singer who would have caused girls to scream and riot back in 1958.

 

MISS LYNCH: 40s-50s. An old maid English teacher.

 

CHA-CHA DIGREGORIO: 18-25 to play high school age. A Blind date. She’s outspoken, flirtatious with unconventional good looks. Takes pride in being “the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s.”
