      Very likely true that there were older teenagers in orphanages, but in the case of the musical, Annie, the roles were not written for older teenagers.

      No, but, at least as written in the original script, Pepper is 12, and July and Duffy are both 13. Clearly, they aren't still following the original descriptions of the orphans, as Kate is written as being seven, but, if even one of these girls is meant to be older than Annie, then having at least one "full-sized" kid seems appropriate to me.
