Brilliant audio performance!
Jon Bolitho-Jones did such a fantastic job that Winter Masquerade sounded like it was performed by multiple voice actors.

A Rich Fantasy!
This is a story reminiscent to Alice in Wonderland. The similarity is reflected in some of the more absurd pieces but there is so much more to this story. Such as, it is a rally around those who are victims and an exercise in seeing things for what they truly are and for people to take a step and move forward, do not remain trapped or a victim.
Simply Spectacular Story
This is a high spirited and lively story, and Mr. Bolitho-Jones keeps up the pace, and adds even more zest to the spectacle. And his ability to create a unique voice, which perfectly suits each of this incredibly varied cast of characters, is admirable… not to mention, there’s singing!
A Fantastic 4 Star Listen!
Come fall in love with a fabulous narrator and a cast of characters that will make you hungry for more from this talented author!

MEET THE NARRATOR
Jon Bolitho-Jones graduated from ArtsEd School of acting, London, and since then have worked in short films, Shakespeare, fringe theatre, and pantomime.
His experience adds so much to this reading of Winter Masquerade. His zany character voices give life to the eccentric passengers on board the Sea Queen, while his interpretation of the dramatic scenes beautifully depicts the danger Ferris is trying to escape from.
