REVIEWS AND COMMENTS


Congratulations David! It sounds terrific!

My daughter loved Alice and I think you and the directors did a brilliant job in casting Georgia. She carries the piece. I also received a congrats from David Carley, so I think that's a really good sign. You put so much work into this and I think it comes through in the quality of the show. Hooray! Thank you for letting me be a part of it!

-Diane, London ON-


 “Is one of the best audio dramas I've heard yet. It had me on edge the entire time. As Alice encountered the many different beings throughout wonderland, I felt myself being transported to her world. I would definitely recommend that all people, young and old alike, listen to this thrilling and exciting Audio drama.” 

-Anna 13, Illinois USA-


"I have sent Alice to a handful of people (to listen to) and they have nothing but good things to say about it..."

-Brady, Toronto ON-


Congratulations! I listened at work, where I have good headphones and it sounded terrific. I was interrupted a few times but heard 80%. I thought Georgia was great and the script well-written and thought out. There was a lot of narration but Georgia pulled it off and, besides, storytelling works well in audio, obviously. A great addition to your catalogue!

-Dave,  Toronto ON-


"Schultz's Alice was the fulcrum of the entire revival as she not only narrated the story but communicated her thoughts to listeners in asides.  It was a tribute to her acting skill that she came across as a level-headed personality, someone who remained distinctly unfazed by what was happening around her.  Hence her ability to treat the entire journey as a dream at the end.  She also had a good singing voice; her song "My Garden Back Home" summed up her yearning to return  to the world of  respectability. "
