Cinderella In The News
“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]
“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 READ THE FULL REVIEW

“Excellent recommendation! My daughters (Kindergarten and 2nd grade) LOVED it! I got it for them yesterday and they’ve already listened to it 4 times! I haven’t listened to it myself, but what I did hear sounded very well done.I saw that Voices in the Wind also have a collection of four classic children’s tales. I think we’ll try that next!” – J.Benjamin
