Overview

Groups who perform for young audiences or produce musicals with young actors now have an ideal version of GREASE for their needs. Shorter and more suitable in content for teens and subteens, this abridged version retains the fun-loving spirit and immortal songs that make GREASE a favorite among rock and roll fans of all ages. 

The School Edition eliminates all of the references and uses of cigarettes and alcohol, as well as any swearing or bad language. Practically all of the songs have undergone changes as well; the numbers are all shortened and edited for content/language. Some plot lines are missing from the school version, such as Rizzo’s pregnancy and her song, “There Are Worse Things I Could Do.” The beginning of the pajama party in Marty’s bedroom is cut as well. In the School Edition, the Pink Ladies do not offer Sandy cigarettes or wine. Instead it begins directly with piercing her ears. GREASE – School Edition is considered to be G-rated.

TRW is proud to represent GREASE worldwide, excluding the United States, Canada and Scandinavia.

Casting & Production

Casting

8 female and 9 male featured roles

Large ensemble with featured solos and lines

Danny Zuko – The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong and cofident, with an air of easy-going charm

Sandy Dumbrowski – New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent

Betty Rizzo – Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulerable

Frenchy – 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 – 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 – Funny, loud, compulsive eater and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys

Doody – 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.

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.

Sonny LaTierri – 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

Roger – 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
Vince Fontaine – a typical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran ‘Greaser.’
Cha-Cha, aka Charlene DiGregorio – the best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny.

Eugene Florczyk – 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.

Johnny Casino – All-American, rock-star “greaser” student at Rydell High, whose real name is Clarence

Miss Lynch – A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher

Patty Simcox – 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.

The Pink Ladies – the club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang who hang around with the Burger Palace Boys.

The Burger Palace Boys – A super-cool, DA-haired, hard-looking group of high school wheeler-dealers… or so they think.
