Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, "Pink Ladies" in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s in this rollicking musical. Head "greaser" Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.

Show Notes:

*Grease: School Version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs of the blockbuster show, but removes any profanity, lewd behavior, and Rizzo's pregnancy scare. The song "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" is also deleted from this edition.

Additionally, the following songs have undergone lyric changes for the School Version:
"Alma Mater Parody"
"Summer Nights"
"Freddy, My Love"
"Greased Lightnin'"
"Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee"
"Beauty School Dropout"
The remainder of the songs have been edited for time, with some verses deleted.


Danny Zuko

The leader of the "Burger Palace Boys." Has an air of cool, easy-going charm. Strong and confident. Conflicted with trying to be cool and his love for Sandy

Sandy Dumbrowski

Danny's love interest. Sweet, wholesome, naive, a bit shy. New to school.

Betty Rizzo

Leader of the Pink Ladies. She is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable.


A dreamer. Good-natured and not super bright. Fussy about her appearance-particularly her hair. She can't wait to finish high school so she can be a beautician.


The "beauty" of the Pink Ladies. Self-absorbed and boy crazy. Tries to act sophisticated.


Quirky, fun and a compulsive eater. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.


Second-in-command of the Burger Palace Boys. Tough, surly, avoids any show of sftness. Has an off-beat sense of humor.


Youngest of the guys. Boyish, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude toward the other guys. He plays the guitar.


The "anything-for-a-laugh" type. Full of mischief, half-baked schemes and ideas. A clown who enjoys putting other people on.


A braggart and wheeler-dealer who things he's a real lady-killer. Often times, he's "all talk"

Patty Simcox

A super hyper cheerleader. Aggressive, sure of herself and given to bursts of disconserting enthusiasm. A bit catty.

Cha-Cha DiGregorio

A blind date, Slovenly, loud-mouthed. Takes pride in being "the best dancer at St. Bernadette's. Full of herself.

Eugene Florczyk

The class valedictorian. Physically awkward. An apple-polisher, smug and pompous but gullible. Possible voice cracks?!

Vince Fontaine

A typical "teen audience" radio disc jockey. Slick, egotistical, fast-talking. A veteran "greaser."

Johnny Casino

A "greaser" student at Rydell who leads a rock' n roll band and likes to think of himself as a real rock 'n roll idol.

Teen Angel

A guardian angel type. Male or female. Looking out for Frenchy. Smooth voice. Confident and poised.

Miss Lynch

English teacher.

Rydell Students

School students grades 6-12th set in the 50's. Fun, energetic.
