Dandelion Wine Incidental Music

Midi instruments (2007)

It is 1928 and a perfect summer: 12 year-old Douglas Spaulding has the perfect best friend, a crush on Ann, the lovely ‘older woman’ who runs the library, a delightful relationship with the odd but fascinating adults of the town, and grandparents, whose boarding house bursts with delectable discussion. But one figure comes to this seminal summer uninvited: the mysterious Bill Forrester, who seems to know everyone and intimates that disaster is imminent. His identity only becomes more mysterious with each passing bottle of grandpa’s dandelion wine. [from a Pasadena News Star review] For better or worse, it is quintessential small town America. This was my fourth commission from Ray Bradbury’s Pandemonium Theater Company.
