SYNOPSIS:

Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town, and Danny Zuko, the school’s coolest greaser, have a secret summertime romance - but when they get back to school, everything is different. Sandy attempts to navigate the tricky Rydell High School social waters and catch Danny’s attention again, but Danny is chiefly concerned with maintaining his tough-guy reputation. In the end, the Pink Ladies help Sandy figure out how to win back the leader of the Burger Palace Boys.

AUDITION INFORMATION 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO AUDITION? Auditions are open for performers ages 14-25! We encourage auditions from people of all races, religions, gender identities, physical abilities, and sexual orientations! 

WHAT SHOULD I PREPARE? Please prepare a song from a Broadway show in the style of GREASE. We ask that you please bring along a backing-track. A capella auditions will not be accepted.

CALLBACKS: Callbacks for specific roles may occur and will be by invitation only. 
If you don't receive a callback, don't worry! We will not be hosting callbacks for every role in the show. 

SHOW FEE: For those who are cast, there will be a show fee. This fee is yet to be determined by our Executive Board. This fee helps to cover the cost of venue rental, licensing, sets, costumes, props, insurance and so much more! It does not cover payments for employees.
 

WHAT TO EXPECT: When you arrive at your audition, you will be greeted by members of our administration team who will ask that you fill out any necessary paperwork. They will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding the show/company. Please arrive ten to fifteen minutes before your scheduled audition slot. When you arrive in the audition room, you will be greeted by the Creative Team (Piper J. Distel and Lori Robinson Distel, Directors; Scott Mountain, Vocal Director; Julian Lam, Choreographer, and Jennifer Lynn Mountain, Stage Manager.) You will be asked to perform your song, and may be asked to read a scene from the show. You may also be asked to stay for a movement audition with Julian Lam. Movement Auditions will take place every half-hour, and will last roughly 10 minutes.
 

CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS 

DANNY ZUKO: (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, D4-B5) 
The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong, and confident, with an air of easy-going charm.

SANDY DOMBROWSKI (Femme. RANGE: Soprano, A3-F5) 
New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent.

BETTY RIZZO (Femme. RANGE: Alto, A3-C5) 
Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic, and outspoken but vulnerable.

FRENCHY (Femme. RANGE: Alto, A3-D5) 
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.

MARTY (Femme. RANGE: Alto, C4-C5) 
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.

JAN (Femme. RANGE: A3-C5) 
Funny, loud, compulsive eater, and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.

KENICKIE (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, C4-F5) 
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.

DOODY (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, D4-A5) 
The youngest of the guys; small, boyish, and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. He also plays the guitar.

ROGER (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, D4-A5) 
The anything-for-a-laugh stocky type of boy; a clown who enjoys winding people up, he is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas.

SONNY LATIERRI (Masc. RANGE: Baritone, G3-A5) 
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.

CHA-CHA (Femme. RANGE: Alto, C4-C5) 
The best dancer at St. Bernadette's; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny. Strong dance skills a must.

EUGENE FLORCZYK (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, A3-E5) 
The class valedictorian; physically awkward, with weak eyes and a high-pitched voice. He's a typical 'apple-polisher' - both smug and pompous, but gullible.

PATTY SIMCOX (Femme. RANGE: Alto, D4-A4) 
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.

JOHNNY CASINO (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, G4-A5) 
All-American, rock-star “greaser” student at Rydell High, whose real name is Clarence.

TEEN ANGEL (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, E4-F5) 
Frenchy's suave and slick guardian angel, who encourages her to stay in school. 

VINCE FONTAINE (Masc.) 
A typical 'teen audience' disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran 'Greaser.'

THE PINK LADIES (Femme. RANGE: Soprano, Alto) 
The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls' gang who hang around with the Burger Palace Boys.

THE BURGER PALACE BOYS (Masc. RANGE: Tenor, Baritone) 
A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers... or so they think.
