In this extract from the “Ent’racte” (sic) from John Crook’s score to Peter Pan, how far does the pedal pattern indicated by “simile” last? Looking at the score I can imagine any of these possibilities:
- It lasts for the three measures which have the bass-line rhythm 3 quavers + 1 quaver rest;
- It lasts for all measures where the bass-line comprises eighth notes/rests (i.e., until the last two measures before the double bar); or
- It lasts until the double bar.
(And, of course, the answer might be something I haven’t imagined.)
(The score is available at https://books.google.com/books?id=J-wQAAAAYAAJ Page 19 et seq., if more context is needed than I’ve given.)
