The leader of the Burger Palace Boys; good-looking, strong and confident, with an air of easy-going charm
New girl in town; sweet, wholesome, naive, cute, and innocent
Leader of the Pink Ladies; tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable
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
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.
Funny, loud, compulsive eater and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.
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 best dancer at St. Bernadette’s; a loud mouth, she wins the dancing competition with Danny. Must be a very strong dancer
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.
The second in command of the Burger Palace Boys; tough-looking, surly and avoids any show of softness. He has an offbeat sense of humor.
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
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
A typical ‘teen audience’ disc jockey; slick, egotistical and fast-talking. He is also a veteran ‘Greaser.’
The class valedictorian; physically awkward, a typical ‘apple-polisher’ – both smug and pompous, but gullible.
A student at Rydell who leads a rock ‘n roll band and likes to think of himself as real rock ‘n roll idol/Frenchy’s suave and slick guardian angel, who encourages her to stay in school.
A no-nonsense, serious, loud, English teacher
