GREASE is a show with an array of lead roles, cameos, acting roles, dance parts and terrific ensemble participation.

BETTY RIZZO - Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable.

JAN - Funny, loud, compulsive eater and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with the boys.
DOODY - The youngest of the guys; small, boyish and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshiping attitude towards the other guys. He also plays the guitar.
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 humor.

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

THE BURGER PALACE BOYS - (AKA "The T-Birds" A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers... or so they think.

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. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be rebellious, provocative and funny. 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, through 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.
