As the story of little orphan Annie prepares for the Park Theater stage this week, there’s the real-life story of little orphan Violet who has a role in the show.Violet was rescued just over a year ago from her orphanage – Warren County Animal Control. She’s the dog of play director Logan Taylor and she’ll appear in two scenes of “Annie Jr.”“This is the first time I’ve had a dog in one of my shows and it was a hard decision to make,” said Taylor. “We kept asking, ‘Do we want to use a real dog in the show?’ and we finally decided to give it a try.
