ANNIE

SCENE-1 -In the orphanage, in the middle of the night Annie is awake
(4th form orphans are sleeping behind)
Molly: (Molly is having a nightmare) Mamma! Mommy!
Pepper: Molly wake up and shut up so I can sleep!
July: Ah, leave Molly alone. (Molly keeps moaning and shouting Mommy)
Carol: Oh, shut up Molly!
Susy: Oh, my goodness. Stop it! I want to get some sleep!
Mary: Leave her, she’s not doing anything to you.
Pepper: She’s keeping us awake, isn’t she?
Sarah: No, YOU are keeping us awake!
All Orphans: (scream as Pepper beats up July)
Jane: Oh, my goodness. Now they are fighting and I won’t get any sleep.
Annie: (shoves Pepper off of July) Stop it! Lay off July! If Hannigan wakes up she'll get sore! It's OK
Molly, it’s me, Annie, you were just having a nightmare.
Molly: I miss my mommy and daddy.
Annie: You have to get back to sleep
Pepper: Uh, Molly we haven’t got parents and we won’t ever going to have them. That's why we're
called orphans!
Annie: I'm not an orphan! My parents are alive and they’re coming to get me someday.
Orphan (Vicky G): Yeah! And Annie's got a note that proves it! (Sticks out tongue at Pepper)
Molly: Will you read it to me Annie?
July: Oh, brother.
Pepper: Here we go again.
Susy: Oh my goodness, not again!!
Annie: (Reading the note) Please take care of our little darling, her name is Annie. We will be back to
get her soon. She was born....
Pepper and Annie: Born on October the 28th.
Pepper, Annie, and July + orphans: We have left half a silver locket around her neck and kept the
other half, so that when we come back for her you will know that she's our baby.
(Pepper and July laugh)
Annie: Do you want to sleep with your teeth inside your mouth or out? Now get to sleep! I know these
don't mean anything to you, but they're everything to me. They prove I’ve got parents.
Molly: Do you really think they're out there Annie?
Lucy: I dream about having a father and a mother again...
Annie: Yes!, and I’m going to meet them someday.
SONG – MAYBE (Lucy, Annie and other orphans)
(As the song ends Annie begins putting some stuff into a bag)
July: (waking up) What now?
Annie: If my folks haven't found me then I'm going to find them.
Pepper: Again?
Annie: (shines flashlight in Pepper's eyes) Pepper! Watch out for Molly!
Molly: But what if Miss Hannigan catches you?
Annie: She won't.
(Annie creeps either to the side of the stage or behind curtain to give the orphans a chance to leave she
may then sneak around the other side)
Ms. Hannigan: Boo! Trying to make a break, again! (grabs flashlight from Annie)
(Annie turns over in a position as to be spanked)
Ms. Hannigan: What are you doing?
Annie: Aren't yoy going to beat the tar out of me?
Ms. Hannigan: Have I ever hit any of you?

1
Annie: No, but you threaten and that's worse.
Ms. Hannigan: (Laughs) I know. Kid, if you think it's bad in here it's lousy out there. I'm doing you a
favour by not letting you go. What do you say?
Annie: (murmuring) I love you Ms. Hannigan
Ms. Hannigan: I can't hear you.
Annie: (yelling) I love you Ms. Hannigan!
Ms. Hannigan: Rotten orphan.
Annie: I'm not an orphan. My parents left me with a note saying they'd come back for me.
Ms. Hannigan: (Laughs) That was 1921 this is 1932. You're an orphan. (Enters the sleeping area and
blows whistle quite a bit) Rise and shine! Rise and shine!
July: But it's in the middle of the night.
Ms. Hannigan: Don't you think I know that? Annie here tried to run away, again. So as a little
welcome home party your all going to clean this dump till it shines like the top of the Chrysler
building. What do you say?
Orphans: (in a bummed out way) We love you, Ms Hannigan.
Ms. Hannigan: And I love you. Now scrub these floors, and strip them beds. Get to work. (Orphans
groan) Now!
SONG-HARD KNOCK LIFE (4th Form)

SCENE-2 - In Ms. Hannigans office, there's a desk and one or two chairs
Ms. Hannigan: If the board of orphans finds out that you kids want to get out of here, they'll start
snooping around here and I could loose my job.
Annie: But I thought you hated your job.
Ms. Hannigan: Oh, no! I love my job, it's kids I hate. You wait here I'm going to cook up your
punishment and it's going to be a dozy. Ok, missy. I don't want you ever do this again, so you are going
to scrub every inch of this dump with this. (pulls out a tooth brush) Glad that you still here?
Annie: (mumbling) Yes, Ms. Hannigan.
Ms. Hannigan: Liar! What's the one thing I always taught you?
Annie: Never tell a lie.
Ms. Hannigan: That's right.
Grace: (Enters office) Excuse me, I was told that I'd find a Ms. Hannigan here...
Ms. Hannigan: And who might you be?
Grace: I am Grace Farrell, the board of orphans said that...
Ms. Hannigan: Look, it was all a big mistake. For some reason Annie was awake and trying to get out
and (In exasperation) please, don't fire me!
Grace: I think you must have me confused with someone else.
Ms. Hannigan: Oh, I get it. Listen honey, if you're peddling beauty products, I don't need 'um. (Starts
to stand up)
Grace: I do not peddle anything. I am personal secretary to Mr. Oliver Warbucks.
Ms. Hannigan: (Sits back down in disbelief) “The” Oliver Warbucks?
Grace: Yes.
Ms. Hannigan: The richest man in the world!
Grace: Yes. The board of orphans sent me here to extend Mr. Warbucks personal invitation to an
orphan to spend a week in his home.
Ms. Hannigan: I'm an orphan! I can be ready in ten minutes!
Grace: An orphan child, perhaps a child like this one... (Gestures toward Annie)
Annie: Great idea! I'm a child and I'm an orphan.
Ms. Hannigan: Liar! Annie you are no orphan. (pulls Annie next to her) She's my little girl and she is
nothing but trouble.
Grace: That seems hard to believe.
Ms. Hannigan: Look, you can have any orphan in the joint, just not Annie.

2
Grace: If this has something with the orphanage or losing your job then perhaps the board of orphans
should know about it.
Ms. Hannigan: (after a pause) She’s all yours. Have a nice day
Grace: Good. If you'll sign the paper work and get Annie's coat, and an umbrella.
Ms. Hannigan: Coat? Why would a kid need a coat?
Grace: We'll buy you one at Bergdorf's on the way out of town. (Grace and Annie begin to leave)
Ms. Hannigan: (To herself) Bergdorf's? Well now aren’t we fancy?
Annie: (to other orphans) You’ll never guess what I get to do! I get to go away for Christmas!
Orphans: (Cheer and say things like "bye Annie" as Grace and Annie leave)
Annie: (to Grace): Wow! It’s raining! It’s pouring! Will we go with this rain?
Grace: Mmmmhh! What do you think? Shall we wait?
Annie: NO! I want to leave as soon as possible. Let’s go any way. I’m so happy that I don’t mind
getting wet.
Grace: Are you sure?
Annie: Yes! Let’s go singing. Singing in the rain!
SONG – SINGING IN THE RAIN (Annie, Grace and 1st Form )

Annie: Hello…Benjamin.
Benjamin: (Bows) Good morning Miss
Grace: And these are Mrs. Scooters and Miss Byron
Mrs. Scooters: May I take your coat?
Annie: Will I get it back?
Miss Byron: Of course you will, honey. (Removes coat and hands it to Benjamin)
Benjamin: (Exits politely)
Grace: Now, what do you want to do first?
Annie: The floors, I'll scrub them, and then I'll do the windows. (Rolls up sleeves and takes a step to
the left)
Grace: Annie, Annie, you are Mr. Warbucks guest. You're here to have fun!
Annie: Really?
Grace: Really. Mr. Warbucks instructed me to make sure that for the next few weeks you have a swell
time. Now, as for the work around here…Mrs. Scooters and Miss Byron will tend to your clothes, toys,
cleaning and anything else you may need! And speaking of clothes, let's get you into some new ones.
Miss Byron has laid them all out, just for you. They're right back here in this room. You hurry along
and get changed. Benjamin!
Grace: (picks up telephone) Hello…may I speak with the information desk please…oh this is…well
this is Grace Farrell personal secretary to…yes, the Oliver Warbucks…thank you…has Mr. Warbucks
arrived yet…wonderful…I think that Annie will be anxious to see him…yes of course…thank you.
(hangs up). Annie, are you ready yet?
Annie: (runs out and stops). Golly, I feel like a princess! (runs to Grace and gives her a hug)
Grace: And you look like one too. (gives Annie a hug and then spins her around and out)
SONG: I THINK I’M GONNA LIKE IT HERE (6th Form Girls)

Mr. Warbucks: (enters and looks stern)


Annie: (spins into him)
Mr. Warbucks: Who are you?
Annie: I'm Annie
Grace: (straightens her dress) Welcome home, Mr. Warbucks! How was your trip?
Mr. Warbucks: Don't ask me about my trip, it was a nightmare!

3
Grace: Uh, well…President Roosevelt is awaiting your call at the White House.
Mr. Warbucks: Fine I'll just…what did you say your name was?
Annie: Annie, sir.
Mr. Warbucks: Is there any particular reason why you are here?
Grace: With all the negative press you've been receiving, Annie is the orphan you invited for
Christmas.
Mr. Warbucks: You're a girl. Orphans are boys.
Grace: You didn't specify boy, sir.
Annie: Ah, gee, Mr. Warbucks, sir, that's ok. You can trade me in for a boy. I really liked seeing your
house. It sure is big. (Annie begins leaving and Grace knocks Mr. Warbucks with her elbow)
Mr. Warbucks: (Following Annie) Ah, Annie, I couldn't be more delighted for you to stay with me in
my big house. (To Grace) What are we supposed to do with her?
Grace: Well, it is Annie's first night here so…
Mr. Warbucks: So…….. (acts like he doesn't care)
Grace: How about a Braodway show?
Annie: Gee, I've never been to one of those before.
Mr. Warbucks: Then you will attend a Broadway show, with Grace. (They all enter Mr. Warbuck's
office and he sits down) I thought you were going out.
Annie: Oh, yes, well you see, Mr. Warbucks, sir, I've never met any one with a real job and I've never
seen New York either, so I'm just as happy to watch you working.
Mr. Warbucks: You've lived in New York all you life and never seen the place?
Annie: Ms. Hannigan…
Grace: She runs the orphanage.
Annie: Well, she never let's us kids out. What's New York City like anyway?
Mr. Warbucks: Well, it's, hmm, let me think... NYC? You will conquer it!
SONG – NEW YORK, NEW YORK (5th Form Boys)

SCENE-4: In Ms. Hannigan’s office: Ms. Hannigan and Grace are seated at the desk.
Ms. Hannigan: Just let me make sure I heard you right, miss personal secretary to the Oliver
Warbucks. My Annie is going to be adopted by your millionaire?
Grace: Actually, he's a billionaire. And yes, he's going to tell her tonight.
Ms. Hannigan: Well, isn’t she the lucky one?
Grace: Yes, if you'll just sign here. (Pushes a paper and pen in Ms. Hannigan's direction)
Ms. Hannigan: Sure, will you just excuse me for one moment? (Ms. Hannigan exits and screams at
the top of her lungs then re- enters) Now, where were we?
Grace: (Pushes pen and paper in Ms. Hannigan's direction again. Ms. Hannigan signs) Thank you.
Good day. (Exits)
Ms. Hannigan: Whatever... (Puts head in hands)
Rooster: (enters) Hey, sister. Glad to see me?
Ms. Hannigan: Don't it show? Did they let you out of prison this time, or did you escape?
Rooster: I cut a deal with the warden.
Ms. Hannigan: Rooster, you’re the only con I know that can con a cop.
Rooster: Thanks. Hey! meet my new girl. (Lily enters) Lily…Lily… (trying to come up with her last
name) …Lily…
Lily: St. Regis, Miss Lily St. Regis. I'm named after the hotel.
Ms. Hannigan: (Obviously not impressed) Oh, which floor?
Lily: (looking around) Real nice place you got here...
Ms. Hannigan: Sure, every day I get down on my knees and pray, why me?
Lily: Gee, I don't know.
Ms. Hannigan: (Rolls eyes) Spill it Rooster: what do you want?
Rooster: Well, me and Lily was in the neighbourhood and.. 10 bucks to tide me over?

4
Ms. Hannigan: Ten Bucks?! I haven’t got ten cents! Get out and take the St. Regis here with you.
Lily: Wait a minute!
Ms. Hannigan: You mean that after all your crooked schemes all you got is lint in your pockets?
Rooster: Look who's talking!
Ms. Hannigan: I'm doing just fine.
Rooster: No, you are doing like I'm doing.
Lily: (Breaking in.) Lousy.
Rooster: Aggie, how is it us Hannigans always end up with the fuzzy end of the lollypop?

SONG – Easy street) (7th & 8th))

SCENE 5: In Mr. Warbucks' house, there should be some furniture so that Annie, at least can sit.
Grace: Benjamin!
Benjamin: (Enters nods head and hands her a jewelry box and then exits)
Grace: Here you go, sir. (Hands him a jewelry box)
Mr. Warbucks: Oh, good.
Grace: Is everything all right?
Mr. Warbucks: Well, you know... (Obviously nervous)
Annie: (Runs in) Benjamin said we could have the picnic right here.
Mr. Warbucks: Sounds delightful. Uh,.. Annie, before we, uh…there's something I want to ask you. I
never realized...
Annie: Yes sir...
Mr. Warbucks: Oh, well, maybe this will explain it better. (Hands jewellery case to Annie)
Annie: (opening it) Oh, gee, thank you, sir.
Mr. Warbucks: I noticed that old broken one you always wear and I thought off with the old and on
with the new.
Annie: No, I don't want a new one! My parents gave me this one saying they'd come back for me some
day. You been real nice to me, Mr. Warbucks, but all I want is my parents.
Mr. Warbucks: If it's your parents you want, then I'll find them for you. But I'll need that note and
your locket so that the FBI can trace them to your mother and daddy.
Grace: If Mr. Warbucks says he can find your parents he will, even if he has to pull every string he
has, right up to the president of the United States.
Annie: (Reluctantly gives up locket and note) Thank you sir. (sadly)
Grace: Annie, we're going to find your parents.
Mr. Warbucks: Of course. (Exits with Grace)

Ms. Hannigan: Do I hear happiness in here? (Orphans stop laughing, but still smile) I still see smiles.
(Orphans stop smiling) That's more like it.
Molly: Ms. Hannigan, Annie was on the radio, they're sending out a search for her parents.
Sara: And there's a 50.000 dollars reward!
Ms. Hannigan: (To herself) Well, how do you like them, apples.
Mary: Isn't it great?
Ms. Hannigan: Great. Get to bed before I pound you!
Rita: But what about our dinner?
Ms. Hannigan: What about it?

Scatter! (orphans leave and Ms Hannigan sits down at desk) 50,.000 dollars reward! Man, I hate that
kid so much I could be her mother.
Rooster: (Enters with Lily) Hey, sis! Did you hear about Warbucks' plan to find that orphans parents?
Ms. Hannigan: What? Do you think I am deaf? People talk you know.
Rooster: Aggie, we're going to blow this town with all the dough we'll ever need. I've got a plan.
Ms. Hannigan: I'll bet its fool proof.
Rooster: 100%! We're going to fool Warbucks and grab those fifty gees.
Ms. Hannigan: You and every other con artist.
Rooster: You, but them other cons ain't got an artiest working up in Brooklyn making fake birth
certificates.
Ms. Hannigan: Keep talking...
Rooster: And those other cons haven’t got a sister who knows everything there is to know about the
kid.
Ms. Hannigan: Yeah, yeah, I know all about Annie. I also know that the St. Regis here hasn’t got the
brains for the job, she makes one slip and we all end up behind bars for life.
Rooster: Maybe you're right. Lily's out. (Pushes Lily off the desk)
Ms. Hannigan: And I'm in. So, here's the split, half for me, half for you two.
Rooster: Deal.
Lily: Wait just a minute.
Ms. Hannigan: Do you want a cut, or be out of the deal completely?
Lily: Gee no! (Rooster gives Lily a thumb to "back off")
Ms. Hannigan: One last detail, once we get the kid what do we do with her?
Rooster: Haven’t you ever heard of Solofvski? He's got hundreds of maids, and it just so happens that
he's looking for a new one.

All: (laugh and hackle)
Rooster: Then, once we get rid of the kid…We’ll be rich!

- The orphanage, Lily, Rooster and Ms. Hannigan are talking


Ms. Hannigan: Come on! Why can't I go with you guys?
Lily: Because you can't leave children all alone, that's why.
Ms. Hannigan: But I am not the motherly type! Rooster!
Rooster: What now!
Ms. Hannigan (Pulls him closer by the neck collar) Promise me you'll be home by noon.
Rooster: Have I ever let you down, before this.
Ms. Hannigan Okay, then…(lets him go)…
Rooster and Lily: (Exit quickly)
Ms. Hannigan (Sits down) He's never let me down, except for that one time…or two times… or…
ROOSTER!!! Oh, no! Ya aren’t leaving me here this time… Not again! (Runs after them)
Orphans: (Enter)
July: Ms Hannigan, aren’t you going to take us, because after all, you can't leave kids alone, you know

All: (Exit)

SCENE-7: In. Mr. Warbucks' house. Mr. Warbucks and Grace are looking through stacks of
paper and discarding them.
Grace: Sir, I think every liar, cheater, and crack pot showed up on our door step. So many sob stories
and no body mentioned giving Annie the locket.
Annie: (Runs in) Did they show up yet?
Mr. Warbucks: It appears that every one who claims to be your parents are fakes.
(There is a knocking noise and Benjamin enters)
Annie: I'm sure my real parents will show up. Maybe they missed their train or got lost or something.
Benjamin: (holds out letter for Grace)
Grace: This just arrived from the FBI.
Mr. Warbucks: The information about Annie's locket. (Reads letter) Between 1980 and 1985, 90,000
of Annie's type of locket were made and sold. It is impossible to trace your parents through it. I'm so,
so very sorry. (Passes note to Annie)
Annie: It's just that I love my real mother and father so much I don't know if I could love someone
else...
Mr. Warbucks: I understand, but if you could find a place in your heart for me…
Annie: Mr. Warbucks, if I can't have my real parents I think I'd really like it if you'd be my father.
Mr. Warbucks: (hugs Annie) I have an idea. Grace!
Grace: (Enters) Yes, sir. Is everything alright?
Mr. Warbucks: Couldn't be better. Phone Justice Brandice and ask him to come over and sign the
adoption papers.
Grace: Oh, that's wonderful news! (hugs Annie) Mr. Warbucks that's wonderful! (hugs Mr. Warbucks
then backs off and straightens her dress) Umm, when shall I tell the Judge to come?
Mr. Warbucks: Well, it's Christmas eve! Let's have the adoption tonight! And a big party too! Tell
Benjamin to order flowers, champaign, and cavier!
Annie: And ice cream and roasted corn!
Mr. Warbucks: (swings Annie in a circle) Did you hear the little lady? Ice cream, roasted corn, and all
the Christmas decorations left in the city of New York! And Grace, please extend our invitation to
everyone in the house!
Annie: Miss Grace, will you be there too? Because you know it's really nice when you two are
together.

Mr. Warbucks: Grace, will you join us?
Grace: Well, I'd be honoured!
Mr. Warbucks: Wonderful! Let's get ready! (Exits with Annie)

make this celebration what it should be! (Goes to back stage and brings out a box of decorations)
Benjamin: (Goes to back stage and brings out a tree)
Grace: (Begins to decorate and so does Benjamin) Oh, I almost forgot! (Goes to back stage and brings
out a wrapped gift and sets it under the tree and exits)
Benjamin: (Continues dusting, straightening and decorating) Mr. Warbucks, the house is ready!
Mr. Warbucks: (Enters) Benjamin, it's never looked better! You've really outdone yourself this time!
Benjamin: (Bows politely and exits)
Mr. Warbucks: Annie, are you ready?
Annie: (Enters) Leapin lizards! Just look at this joint!
Mr. Warbucks: You know what, Annie? I think I'm the luckiest man in the world!
Annie: And I think I'm the luckiest kid!

SCENE-8:
Annie and Mr. Warbucks: (Laugh together)
Grace: (Enters)
Mr. Warbucks: Grace, that's a very pretty dress you're wearing, and you look very pretty in it.
Grace: Thank you for noticing, sir.
Benjamin: (Enters) Mr. Warbucks, Justice Brandice is here, but before you start…may I introduce…
the Mudges.
Rooster and Lily: (Enter and are weeping)
Rooster: There she is.
Annie: Who are you?
Lily: We're your mummy and daddy.
Rooster: We're Rolf and Shirley Mudge.
Lily: Ain't she beautiful, Ralfy?
Rooster: A regular doll.
Mr. Warbucks: Annie…Mudge? Uh, perhaps we should discuss this more. Please, won't you sit.
Rooster and Lily: (Sit in chairs)
Mr. Warbucks: (Sits down)
Lily: Well, we were just kids, poor, sick…
Rooster: and dumb to leave you. You see, a nice man in Canada offered us a job on a farm.
Lily: No babies allowed. We had no choice. We had to leave you for a little while.
Mr. Warbucks: Eleven years is more than a little while.
Grace: Yes, yours is a truly touching story but…
Rooster: I suppose you'd like to see some ID. Here are our driver licences and Annie's birth certificate.
Mr. Warbucks: (Looking at them) Everything seems to be in order, but I'll send it to the FBI just to be
sure. Benjamin?
Benjamin: (Takes the papers exits and returns)
Rooster and Lily: (Exchange uneasy glances)
Rooster: Finally, we saved up enough money to come looking for our little girl.
Lily: We went straight to where we left her, and the very nice, very attractive lady at the orphanage
said that we'd find Annie here.
Rooster: I still can't believe we found our baby.
Lily: Me neither (starts sobbing again)

8
Mr. Warbucks: There is one more thing…
Lily: Oh, you know with all the things that go on in them orphanages, I suppose you don't have what
we gave you all those years ago.
Rooster: You don't happen to have the other half of this (pulls out half of locket) now, would you?
(holds locket pieces together) Perfect fit. So if you'll just get Annie's things we'll be on our way…
ahhh…with Annie…and…uhhh…I heard something about money...
Mr. Warbucks: Uh, yes. You heard correctly…$50.000 in fact.
Rooster: And in what form is this money?
Mr. Warbucks: Certified check. You can pick it up tomorrow with Annie.
Lily: Tomorrow?
Mr. Warbucks: We want Annie to spend Christmas morning with us.
Rooster: We've lived without her for eleven years, I guess one more night won't hurt.
Mr. Warbucks: Benjamin, will you show the Mudges to the door.
Benjamin: (nods and escorts them out)
Mr. Warbucks: Well, ummm…what wonderful news.
Annie: (Runs to the corner crying)
Grace: (Goes after her)
Mr. Warbucks: (Sighs and exits opposite way)
Annie: (Enters and sits down, sobbing)
Grace: (Follows) Oh, Annie. I know they're not all that you expected but, well…at least you have your
parents…

SCENE-9- Mr. Warbucks house, Annie is sitting with her bag…waiting.


Mr. Warbucks: (Enters with Grace) Merry Christmas, Annie.
Grace: Yes, Merry Christmas.
Mr. Warbucks: Did you check under the tree to see if Santa left you anything?
Annie: No, he brought me my parents, that's plenty! You look like as if you got any sleep.
Mr. Warbucks: Oh, well Grace and I have been working with the FBI and they haven't turned up
anything suspicious yet, but they said that they'd contact me if anything changed.
Annie: So, I'm really a Mudge…Annie Mudge.
Rooster and Lily: (Enter)
Rooster: Where's our little Christmas present? We know she's around here somewhere...
Lily: Well, we'd better be on our way with our little Annie…
Rooster: And our little check.
Grace: So soon? Annie hasn't even gotten to open her Christmas presents yet!
Lily: Sorry, we ain't got time.
Mr. Warbucks: Very well, I'll get your check. Benjamin!
Benjamin: (Enters) Yes, sir.
Mr. Warbucks: Do you have the check?
Benjamin: Right here, sir. (Hands him check and exits)
Mr. Warbucks: Here is the check.
Rooster: Thank you (he grabs the check and starts to retreat)
Ms. Hannigan: We'd better get going
Rooster: Ta-ta
Ms. Hannigan: Too-ta-loo
Rooster: See you in church
Grace: Aren't you forgetting something?
Lily: Oh, yes (grabs Annie harshly) This is going to take some getting used to. (rush out)
Ms Hannigan: (bursting in) You messed with the wrong dame, Rooster!
Rooster: What are you doing here sister?

Ms. Hannigan: Making sure I get my piece of the cake! I want my moola!

SONG- Waving Flag ( 2nd Form)


Benjamin: (Enters and hands Mr. Warbucks another paper)
Mr. Warbucks: (looking at letter) Annie, I have some important news for you. The FBI was finally
able to trace the handwriting in your note. It belonged to a David and Margaret Bennett.
Annie: Where are they?
Mr. Warbucks: They passed away some time ago.
Annie: So, I really am an orphan. (sits down sadly)
Grace: Annie, are you alright?
Annie: I guess you have to look on the bright side, at least I'm not a Mudge!
All: (laugh)
Mr. Warbucks: I hope this is a start of a wonderful new life for all of us. I do mean all of us. Annie,
would you still like to be Annie Bennett Warbucks?
Annie: Oh, yes… Daddy Warbucks!
