Once you apply with the application and registration fee and are accepted, NPT will be holding “Callbacks” on April 30th from 3-6pm for the teen roles below.
Everyone will be featured as there are many lines (that are not in the movie) to spread around!
Lights, Camera, Action!
This year we will once again be utilizing the professional movie production skills of Mark Holleran (Holleran Media) and Scott Bryce (Emmy Nominee) to create actual video scenes (in addition to the live scenes) that feature our teens in this show!
Some scenes may be shot before rehearsals begin on July 30th.
Elbow to elbow with stars!
Please see the info about available teen roles below and also about the four leading roles at the bottom of this page: ***Sandy, Danny, Rizzo and Kenickie.
As we typically accept many talented teens and we cannot guarantee your role prior to registration.
NPT is committed to hiring actors who reflect the diversity of our world; we are actively seeking actors of all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, genders, and abilities.
ROLES AVAILABLE FOR TEENS!
FRENCHY: High school teen (Range: Alto, A3–D5) A member of the Pink Ladies. 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: High school teen (Range: Alto, C4–C5) The ‘beauty’ of the Pink Ladies; looks older than the other girls. She tries to act sophisticated.
JAN: High school teen (Range: Alto, A3-C5) Funny, loud, and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Brash and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.
DOODY: High school teen (Range: Tenor, D4-A5) The youngest member of the Burger Palace Boys; boyish, and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. He plays the guitar.
SONNY LATIERRI: High school teen (Range: baritone, G3-A5) 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: High school teen (Range: Tenor, D4-A5) The class-clown of the T-Birds. He’ll do anything- for-a-laugh; He is full of mischief and is always dreaming up half-baked schemes and ideas.
EUGENE FLORCZYK: High school teen (Range: Tenor, A3– E5) The class valedictorian; physically awkward, and high-pitched voice. He’s a typical ‘apple-polisher’ – both smug and pompous, but gullible.
PATTY SIMCOX: High school teen (Range: Alto, D4-A4) A cheerleader; 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. Twirls a baton.
