I n celebration of our 40th anniversary season, Philadelphia Theatre Company worked with local artist, Emily Schnall, to create original ink and watercolor illustrations that speak to the heart of each play. We hope you enjoy this portfolio of Ms. Schnall’s work as we honor a talented young artist and the playwrights who inspired her.

About the artist:


Emily Schnall grew up in South Jersey with an ardent love for the natural world; she channels this passion into both scientific and artistic pursuits, often mingling the two. Fossil species feature prominently in her art as well as living animals and fantastic creatures. Emily’s work includes murals, medical textbook illustration, creature and character design, paleontological illustration, graphic novels, and sculpture. In 2013, Emily exhibited a series of life-size papier-mâché dinosaur busts and other selected works at Philadelphia Theatre Company’s First Friday Open House. Emily is currently studying illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. This past year she visited the Rupinuni region of Guyana where she studied the region’s biodiversity through scientific and artistic means, and in the future she hopes to raise awareness of conservation efforts in the area. Check out more of Emily’s work here.
