ABOUT THE SHOW
It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hub-caps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby sox and pedal pushers.
At the heart of the story is the romance between hot-rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance in summer, but now back in the context of school, peer-pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated.
Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, with such hit songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "We Go Together”, and “Mooning”, recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.
Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, GREASE is among the world’s most popular musicals!
GREASE is co-produced by The Dr. Robert Cassell Family; George & Kelly Butz; and Brad Dantzler - Raymond James & Associates.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!
CHARACTERS AND VOCAL RANGES:
Danny - (Range: Tenor, D3–B4, falsetto to C5) The leader of the Burger Palace Boys. An air of cool easy-going charm. Strong and confident.
Sandy - (Range: Mezzo Soprano, A3–Eb5) Sweet, wholesome, naive, like Sandra Dee of the "Gidget" movies.
THE PINK LADIES - The club-jacketed, gum chewing girls' gang that hang around the Burger Palace Boys.
Rizzo - (Range: Mezzo-Soprano A3– C5) Leader of The Pink Ladies. She is tough, sarcastic, and outspoken, but vulnerable.
Frenchy -(Range: Alto, F#3–B4) A dreamer. Good-natured and dumb. Particular about her hair. She can't wait to finish High School so she can be a beautician.
Marty - (Range: Mezzo-Soprano, C4–Db5) Looks older than the other Pink Ladies, but betrays her age when she opens her mouth. Tried to act sophisticated.
Jan - (Range: Alto, F3-C#5) Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with the boys.
THE BURGER PALACE BOYS - A super-cool group of High School wheelers and dealers...or so they think.
Kenickie - (Range: Baritone, C3–F#5) Second-in-command of the Burger Palace Boys. Tough-looking, and surly. Avoids any shows of softness.
Doody - (Range: Tenor, E3-C5, falsetto to E5) Boyish and open. Has a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. A bonus if he can play the guitar.
Roger - (Range: Tenor, F3-A4, falsetto to C5) The "anything-for-a-laugh" type. Full of mischief, half-baked schemes and ideas. A clown who enjoys putting other people on.
Sonny - (Range: Bass/Baritone, G2–F#4, falsetto to C5) A braggart and wheeler-dealer who thinks he's a real lady killer.
Patty - (Range: Alto, B3-B4) A cheerleader at Rydell High. Aggressive, sure of herself, given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. A plus if she can twirl a baton.
Cha-Cha - The best dancer at St. Bernadette's.
Eugene - The class valedictorian. An "apple-polisher".
Vince Fontaine - A teen audience radio disc jockey. Slick and fast talking.
Johnny Casino - (Range: Baritone, G3- E4) A student at Rydell High School who leads a Rock N Roll band and likes to think of himself as a real Rock N Roll idol.
