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 version removes all profanity, lewd behavior, and Rizzo's Pregnancy scare. Since Rizzo's pregnancy scare is removed, the song "There Are Worst Things I Could Do" is also removed from this edition. The school version is approximately 15 minutes shorter than the standard version.

Additionally, the following songs of the School Edition have undergone lyric changes:

Alma Mater Parody
Summer Nights
Freddy, My Love
Greased Lightning
Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee
Beauty School Dropout

The remainder of the songs have been edited for time, deleting some verses from the original songs.

CHORUS SIZE

Medium

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.
