Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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 on Alice in Wonderland
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 Radio Drama Revival podcast, on A Christmas Carol
“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 on Alice in Wonderland
“A unique adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic.” TheLondoner.ca
“Perfect from the first sentence to the very last.” WKAR on 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.” Radio Drama Reviews Online
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the work that went into The Spirit of Christmas Day…I’m sure many other families with similar stories all over the (broadcast) area that LIFE covers were able to share this important message with their loved ones because of your efforts.” Cathy Faubert, LIFE 100.3 FM, on The Spirit of Christmas Day
