THE “PINK LADIES“ 

(The club-jacketed, gum-chewing, hip-swinging girls’ gang that hangs around with the “T-Birds”): 

Betty RIZZO: Leader of the Pink Ladies. She is tough, sarcastic and outspoken but vulnerable: Italian, with unconventional good looks. There are Worse Things I Could Do Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee, Summer Nights

MARTY: The “beauty” of the Pink Ladies. Pretty, looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth. Tries to act sophisticated. Freddy, My Love, Summer Nights*

ENSEMBLE 

PATTY Simcox: A typical cheerleader at a middle-class American public high school. Attractive and athletic. Aggressive, sure of -herself, given to bursts of disconcerting enthusiasm. Catty, but in an all-American girl sort of way. She can also twirl a baton. Summer Nights

JOHNNY CASINO: A “greaser” student at Rydell who leads a rock ‘n’ roll band and likes to think of himself as a real rock ‘n’ roll idol.Born to Hand Jive 

TEEN ANGEL: A good-looking falsetto-voiced, Fabian-look-alike. A singer who would have caused girls to scream and riot back in 1958. Beauty School Drop Out
