Wendell and Pan

'With subtle nods to "When You Wish Upon a Star" and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, the appealing melodies of composer Emily Rose Simons' original score dynamically accompanies and accentuates the events.'

A play written by Katelynn Kenny, directed Ria T. DiLullo, with an original score from Emily Rose Simons. 

Life's hard when you're 11, your only friend is the ghost of your 12-year-old dead aunt, your sister wishes she could be on the other side of her cellphone, your parents make every room frigid, and your sick grandpa wants you to kill him. Presented by The Skeleton Rep and The Tank, WENDELL & PAN is a magical dramedy about loneliness, the strange nature of grief, and that moment in your childhood that reverberates with every step you take into the adult world. 

'Emily Auciello's sound design and compositions by Emily Rose Simons capture the joy and danger of Pan's presence, as well as the high and lows of the piece.'
