“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…” READ MORE

“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.” READ MORE
5/5 Stars – Michael Bergonzi, Audio Drama Reviews
There’s nothing quite like closing your eyes and feeling yourself swept away by the sounds of wind and trees and birds chirping, as two people race along on horseback through dense underbrush. It’s the kind of all-immersive production you can lose yourself in. That was the feeling the producers of Snow White were going for when they released the hour-long audiobook in late 2016, the latest offering from Chatham’s Voices in the Wind Audio Theatre. READ MORE
