Footlighters Theater in Berwyn, PA is excited to announce open auditions for the final show in their 91st season, Grease!

Audition requirements:

All auditioners are asked to prepare two song selections, 16 bars each. One should be in the style of Grease! while the other should be a contrast in either style or character. You may sing a selection from Grease! Please bring sheet music in the correct key for all selections.

Auditioners should also prepare a one minute comedic monologue. 

The auditions will also include a short dance routine that will be taught after you sing. Please dress accordingly. Those auditioning for ChaCha should be prepared to demonstrate a full split and stag leap. 

Please note that we are specifically looking for Drag performers for the role of Teen Angel and those actors may be asked to attend callbacks in full drag. 

Rehearsals will run 3 times per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday evenings starting Feb 3) 

All auditions will be in hour slots. The first 40 minutes will be comprised of singing and monologues. The rest of the time will be spent learning and performing the dance routine.

Character Breakdowns:

  • Danny Zuko, (D4-B5) Baritone with strong falsetto, a smooth greaser, the de facto leader of the Burger Palace Boys, and successful womanizer, although the events of the most recent summer have changed him. 

  • Sandy Dombrowski, (A3-F#5)Soprano, an innocent ingenue who eventually finds her wild side. Those auditioning for Sandy will be asked to show a full right leg split and second split.

  • Betty Rizzo, (A3-C5) Belter, the cynical leader of the Pink Ladies. She is strong, embraces the low culture, and refuses to show her feelings. 

  • Kenickie, (C4-F5) Tenor, a hard-nosed tough guy, Kenickie has great pride in his car, Greased Lightning. He has a tempestuous on-again, off-again relationship with Rizzo.

  • Roger "Rump", (D4-A5) Tenor, sardonic yet very self-confident Burger Palace Boy who is easily able to win over Jan and willing to go into a rumble with only a whip antenna as a weapon. He is also a proficient mooner.

  • Jan, (A3-C5) Mezzo Soprano, a member of the Pink Ladies, Jan is quirky, blunt, and has a voracious appetite.

  • Doody, (D4-A5) High Tenor, a younger member of the Burger Palace Boys, Doody has some childlike mannerisms and has trouble handling tense situations. He fantasizes about being a great rock-and-roll guitarist. Guitar skills are a plus. 

  • Frenchy, (A3-D5)  a member of the Pink Ladies. She is a very poor student with aspirations of becoming a beautician, but she is equally inept when she drops out to attend beauty school.

  • Sonny LaTierri, (G3-A5) Baritone, a character who imagines himself a Casanova, but most women find him repulsive. He is also quite cowardly, wilting in the face of any criticism. This role may be doubled with Vince Fontaine.

  • Marty, (C4-C5) Mezzo Soprano, a seasoned member of the Pink Ladies. She is superficial, thinks she’s better than others, and much experience in wine, men and cigarettes. 

  • Patty Simcox, (D4-A4) a high-achieving cheerleader who befriends Sandy and holds her own attractions to Danny. Those auditioning for Patty will be asked to show a full right leg split and second split.

  • Eugene Florczyk, (A3-E5) the class valedictorian is usually portrayed as an awkward nerd. This role may be doubled with Teen Angel

  • Miss Lynch,  an English teacher and stereotypical disciplinarian.

  • Vince Fontaine, Baritone, the smooth-talking student disc jockey. He appears on-stage during the school dance and serves as an on-air host at the local top-40 radio station. This role may be doubled with Sonny. 

  • Johnny Casino: (G4-Eb) the leader of a low-rent rock and roll band that plays at the school dance.

  • Cha-Cha DiGregorio, (C4-C5) she appears at the school dance as Kenickie's date. She is a fierce competitor and dancer. Those auditioning for ChaCha will be asked to show a full split and stag leap.

  • Teen Angel, (E4-F5) Tenor, Frenchy's over-the-top guardian angel who has blunt advice for his subject. This role may be played as a Drag Role and also may be doubled with Eugene.
