Editorial Reviews

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

“The Queen, the Duchess, the Dormouse, and the Mad Hatter. Award-winning voice actor Barbara Rosenblat leads an able cast in giving proper nineteenth-century accents and voices to all our favorite iconic characters from one of the most beloved children’s classics in the English language. Energetic newcomer Georgia Lee Schultz provides Alice with an updated and nicely understandable American accent and is especially good with the many whispered asides that stitch this adapted version together. For many, ALICE IN WONDERLAND is a special cultural touchstone, even with all the commercials, videos, and pop songs that refer to it, so it is always refreshing to hear the language and intended story of the original.”  AudioFile Magazine

 “The zaniness of Carroll’s kaleidoscopic story of Alice is realized through music tied to action (particularly shrinking and growing), the voice work of Barbara Rosenblat playing (among others) both the Cheshire Cat and the Queen of Hearts and enhancing background sounds, such as ocean waves and bird calls when Alice’s tears become a sea.”  –Library Journal (starred audio review)  

 “Alice In Wonderland is very well done! Bravo!” -Catherine Rinella, Host and Producer, Midnight Audio Theatre – WCBE 90.5 FM – NPR Columbus, Ohio

“[Narrator Georgia Lee] 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.”  Radio Drama Reviews Online  

“Great work! Love the lush sound design—knowing how ‘classic’ the original is, I appreciated (their) ability to reimagine the tale for the audio format.”  –Fred Greenhalgh, host of the Radio Drama Revival podcast

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

“…Zarr and Dupuis’ production for the Canada-based Voices In The Wind Audio Theatre was notable for its lack of sentimentality: despite the happy ending, they emphasized the significance of Christmas as the time of year when individuals should take a long hard look at themselves and consider whether they need to reform. Would that everyone could follow Scrooge’s example.” – Laurence Raw, Radio Drama Reviews Online

A Christmas Carol” has been adopted into radio drama by many people over the years, but few better than Voices in the Wind Audio Theatre from Canada.” – Fred Greenhalgh, Host of the Radio Drama Revival Podcast

CINDERELLA

WINNER OF THE GOLD MEDAL – from the HEAR Now Audio Fiction and Arts Festival NATF Playhouse 2019

FINALIST for the 2018 ATC Seneca Award for Georgia Lee Schultz for Best Leading Actress

“Georgia Lee Schultz does a splendid job as Cinderella, embodying the sweet, youthful innocence and kindness of the character perfectly. Other notable performances are Brady Van Vaerenbergh as the Prince and Ellin Wallin as the Old Woman and Fairy Godmother, both of whom fill their respective parts very well.” –J.D.Sutter, Audio Theatre Central – Porchlight Family Media  

“This agreeable ensemble cast rendering of “Cinderella holds appeal for fairy-tale fans of all ages. Narrator Michael Dick’s seasoned voice is ideal as the story quickly shifts from Cinderella’s kindness to the competitive jealousy of Esmé and Agatha, her stepsisters. Georgia Lee Schultz’s endearing portrayal of Cinderella is convincing whether she’s dealing with her nasty stepfamily, a desperate beggar, or the Prince. Superior sound effects such as the stepmother’s demanding bell, Cinderella’s sweeping, and the clock striking midnight add to the ambiance. Mary Ellen Herder is fully believable as the spiteful, greedy stepmother whose list of chores for Cinderella is never-ending. Listeners will be entertained by Cinderella’s conversations with her cat, Mr. Pettipaws, and the shrewdly imparted conclusion.” S.G.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]

SNOW WHITE

WINNER OF THE GOLD MEDAL – from the HEAR Now Audio Fiction and Arts Festival NATF Playhouse 2017

“A resplendent narration and enchanting sound effects make this edition of Grimm’s 1812 fairy tale quite irresistible. Georgia Lee Schultz’s warm voice is ideal for the portrayal of Snow White, particularly when she talks to her birds. Most impressive is Mary Ellen Herder’s Evil Queen; her harsh voice and disturbing cackle are spot-on. First-rate sound effects add atmosphere; for example, when the Evil Queen persuades Snow White to eat the poisoned apple, the crunch is as realistic as the sounds of the birds…” – AudioFile Magazine

“Adapted from the classic Grimm fairy tale, this audio drama of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” follows the source material well, yet adds some new elements and characters that fans of the Disney film will find interesting and compelling. A sort of secret history of what really happened … comparisons aside; this truly has feel of a fairy tale … it’s perfect for kids and adults and for those awesome parents who want to introduce their children to audio drama at an early age.” 5/5 Stars – Michael Bergonzi, Audio Drama Reviews

“It’s a charming take on the classic fairy tale that, while not typically considered a holiday story, showcases that kind of innocence and wonder we had as children, something we think of more often during the holidays.  Voices in the Wind Audio Theatre have many more full-length stories at their website, including some especially for Christmas, so be sure to check them out!”
