SINGING PART: (#43 on page 17) When I’m stuck with a day that gray and lonely. I just stick out my chin and grin and say, Oh, the sun’ll come out tomorrow, so ya gotta hang on ‘till tomorrow, come what may. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow. You’re always a day away. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow. You’re always a day away.

1. (Gruff) Where is everybody? It's good to be home and good to see you all again. Drake, dismiss the staff. And, Grace, if you'll get your notebook… Who is that? That's not a boy. Orphans are boys. . . . . . Well, I suppose she'll have to do.
2. (Con Man with Bronx accent) Oops! Pardon me blondie! Hiya Sis! Long time no see. Glad to see me? I just got outta prison. This is Lily. . . Uh, Lily What’s-er -name. Who was the blondie I bumped into on the way in?
BOYS and GIRLS Ages 12 and younger
1. (Tender) Pipe down all of ya. Go back to sleep. It’s all right Molly. Annie’s here. It was only a dream, honey. Now you gotta go back to sleep. . . (Strong) All right. Do you want to sleep with your teeth inside your mouth or out?
2. (Excited) 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. I've never been to one of those Broadway shows before.

GIRLS 13 and older:
1. (Dumb blond with Bronx accent) My name’s Lily, Lily St Regis. I’m named afta the hotel.
Real nice place ya got here, but ya see I ain't really the motherly type!
2. Hannigan: Aha! Caught ya! Get up. Get up all of you! For this one’s shenanigans, you’ll all get down on your knobby little knees, and clean this dump until it shines like the top of the Chrysler building! Get to work. Now! Why any kid would want to be an orphan, I'll never know.
You may prepare for these, but the director will only call
a handful of people to stay and do these parts.
