Opening scene: Where has Annie been when she enters to comfort Molly?

Is it written anywhere?

If not, what is your guess?

I'm thinking is she scoping the joint and making sure Hannigan is asleep because she is planning to run away.

I didn't even think about her not being in her pajamas. DUH.

So, was this common knowledge that I only figured out 30 years later?

I've been that stupid all these years? LOL

I used to consider myself very perceptive and intelligent. So much for self-awareness.

Oh, I wondered this since i first saw the show as a little girl in 1977 but was afraid to ask! Why was she in street clothes and where the heck was she??? It took me 30 years to fess up, glory be for this website!

Glad I could take on the humiliation (of not knowing) for you

I do recall that I wondered if she just didn't have pajamas but I never, until now, put together wearing street clothes and being off-stage with her about to run away.

DUh Louie! - as we used to say in the 70s

Didn't Annie also have a basket of belongings and a flashlight with her, when she heard Molly crying, and come back into the dorm to comfort here ? Then she picked them up after Maybe etc and start to sneak out ?

Annie runs onstage with a mop and bucket and sets it aside ONSTAGE as she runs to comfort Molly.
In the script it mentions that ANNIE has been up cleaning when she hears Molly's screams and runs onstage to comfort her.

Why was she cleaning, just because she was Miss Hannigan's least favorite orphan ? Why was she in clothes, when the orphans cleaned in PJs after Annie was caught ? Man, my "old" memory is going because I don't remember a mop at all !! Yikes !
