The characters who are first introduced in the story are Sandy and Danny. The story takes place in California. Sandy and Danny had a summer thing and they both thought they would never see one another again. This however is not the case.
The conflict in the story is that the greaser Danny has a reputation that he wants to keep around his friends. Sandy realizes who Danny is around his friends and rejects him. She only knew the Danny she meet over the summer not the greaser Danny.
Sandy and Danny start to argue back and forth. Sandy really likes Danny but for who he really is. Danny does't really know what he wants. He can either be with Sandy or keep his greaser reputation.
" Your'e the One That I Want"
Sandy becomes greaser. She becomes a greaser to show Danny that she loves him. She's willing to change just for him. This shows that she loves him and that she would do anything for him.
Both Danny and Sandy realize that they love each other. They love each other even though they are complete opposites. They also realize that they shouldn't care what they friends or anyone thinks of them.
At the end of the musical everyone sings " You're the one I want." This number brings everyone together as they won't see each other for some time.
