She should also have white socks and black shoes with straps. Her hair should be neat.
4OrphansIt is important the orphans look ragged and tough. The orphans might wear shirts and sweaters over skirts, smocks or flannel nightgowns; layering is very important – matching is not!! Their hair can be extremely unkempt.Hair accessories could be fashioned from ripped pieces of clothes.Molly should have a scruffy teddy bear.
6Miss HanniganMiss Hannigan should always look a bit out of sync with her surroundings. Her hair should look like she has just woken up. Her dress should gaudy and cheap (1930’s floral print) and perhaps have a slip hanging down from under the dress. Stockings should be rolled down and she should wear beads or a boa (along with a whistle on a rope).She will need a long coat when visiting the Warbucks mansion.
8Oliver WarbucksHe is always dressed formally, in a dark suit, white shirt and bow tie. A tuxedo jacket with black bow tie and cummerbund would be ideal.He also needs a hat (top hat) and coat.Possibly use a rubber skullcap to create the bald effect.
10Rooster Hannigan and Lily St. Regis His costume should be as colorful as his personality. His hair might be parted and slicked back. A mustache would be appropriate. Rooster’s clothes should be gaudy. Suspenders, a fedora, and a money sign tie would be good. He will need a different jacket when he is in “disguise”.

She will have a compact and lipstick in her bag. A bizarre wig can help complete the look.

13Grace Farrell She always dresses with thought and style (possibly has a coupleoutfits for the show). She shouldlook professional, possiblywearing a suit and hat for herfirst entrance.
14Drake and ServantsTuxedos or tails would be ideal for the male servants. Plain white shirts with bow ties or ascots could be a good alternative. Drake can have a different tie or jacket to set him apart from the other servants. The female servants may wear a black skirt and blouse with a white apron from home.All servants need to be dressed and groomed neatly, with nothing out of place.
16Dog Catcher and SandyThe dog catcher’s costume should look like a uniform – perhaps a dark shirt, matching pants and a hat with the words DOG CATCHER on it. He can also carry a big net.Sandy can wear a furry, hooded one-piece costume with floppy ears and tail.
