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 Edition eliminates all of the references and uses of cigarettes and alcohol, as well as any swearing or bad language. Practically all of the songs have undergone changes as well; the numbers are all shortened and edited for content/language. Some plot lines are missing from the school version, such as Rizzo's pregnancy and her song, "There Are Worse Things I Could Do." The beginning of the pajama party in Marty's bedroom is cut as well. In the School Edition, the Pink Ladies do not offer Sandy cigarettes or wine. Instead it begins directly with piercing her ears. Grease - School Edition is considered to be G-rated.
The following songs of the School Edition have undergone lyric changes:
Alma Mater Parody
Freddy, My Love
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.

In 1959, Rydell High School's students are starting a new year. ("Alma Mater Parody").
Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl at school and Danny Zuko, the leader of the 'Burger Palace Boys', had a brief romantic fling over the summer. Sandy recounts her version of the fling to the 'Pink Ladies' (Jan, Marty, Frenchy, and Betty Rizzo), while Danny tells the Boys (Roger, Doody, Sonny, and Kenickie) his rendition ("Summer Nights"). Sandy and Danny soon bump into each other at school, and while Sandy is happy to see him, he plays it cool. Meanwhile, the kids gather in the hall as Doody shows off his new guitar. The rock star wannabe gives an impromptu concert in the hall ("Those Magic Changes").
At Marty's pajama party, the girls give each other pierced ears, and talk about boys. Marty tells about her long-distance courtship with Freddy ("Freddy, My Love"). Meanwhile, the Burger Palace Boys are busy stealing hubcaps and teasing Kenickie about his new (used) car ("Greased Lightning").
Danny sees Sandy again and tries to apologize for his behavior. Head cheerleader Patty Simcox interrupts to prompt Sandy to join the squad and to tease Danny about his latest indiscretions ("Rydell Fight Song"). The kids take their newfangled portable radios for a rock and roll picnic in the park and plan how they will pair off at the upcoming school prom, while Roger shares his love for Jan and his favorite hobby ("Mooning"). Rizzo teases Danny for falling for a girl who resembles the excessively proper teenage ingénue, Sandra Dee ("Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee"). Sandy realizes that Danny is putting her off to be cool and wishes she had never met him.
Then Danny suggests that Marty go out with Eugene, and she chases after him. Act I ends with a spirited pledge of friendship ("We Go Together").
At the High School Hop, everyone is dancing, except Sandy ("Shakin' At the High School Hop"). She is home feeling sorry for herself ("It's Raining on Prom Night"). Meanwhile, favorite radio DJ Vince Fontaine, is warming the kids up for the hand-jive dance contest. Kenickie dumps his blind date, Cha-Cha DiGregorio, and pairs up with Rizzo. Danny and Cha-Cha then proceed to win the dance contest ("Born to Hand Jive").
A few days later at the Burger Palace after school, a couple of the guys run into Frenchy, who flunked out of Rydell and has now dropped out of beauty school ("Beauty School Dropout"). Danny, who has taken up track in order to win back Sandy's affections, does not know that Cha-Cha's boyfriend's gang has challenged the guys to a rumble. He is more concerned about patching things up with Sandy at the Twi-Light Drive-In, but he moves too fast for her, and she leaves ("All Alone at a Drive-In Movie"). A couple of days later, the "greasers" are having a party in Jan's basement, as Doody and Roger sing "Rock 'n' Roll Party Queen." Sandy wonders what she needs to do to fit in at Rydell ("Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee Reprise").
The next time Sandy meets up with the Burger Palace Boys and the Pink Ladies, she has transformed herself into a greaser's dream date ("All Choked Up"). Rizzo reveals that she is not pregnant, and she and Kenickie reunite. All ends happily ("We Go Together-Reprise").
Book, Music, and Lyrics by
Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey
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
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.
