Voice Over Testimonials

Jane Beverley has graciously donated her time and talents to assist with our production of audiobooks to aid the learning of blind, dyslexic & otherwise visually impaired students. She is among our most enthusiastic, skilled and professional narrators. Her ability to imbue a recording with the precise type of performance (or performances) required is a testament to her profound versatility & dramatic range.
Jane has always been willing to offer her assistance with anything we required with enthusiasm & grace. She's been an absolute pleasure to work with & I enthusiastically recommend her for any endeavor she chooses to pursue in the realm of audiobooks & voice acting.
--Ian McInnes, Casting Director, Production Administrator, Learning Ally

Learning Ally

I've known Jane Beverley (Smith) for over two decades. First as the dramaturg and leading director for my theater company, Bon Bock Productions, leading over a dozen productions to stellar reviews and awards. Her insight as an advisor and editor was astute in ways I am only now beginning to understand. Currently, she is a founding member of Raconteur Radio, a company dedicated to staging classic and original radio dramas, for which I serve as artistic director. She has played dozens of parts, ranging from the (perhaps) obvious, Miss Marple, to the surprising, Bilbo Baggins. Her performances, particularly as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard and Gertrude Stein in an Evening with Gertrude Stein, frequently provoke standing ovations. She is a rare talent; her abundant skill always sharpens and improves the production and her ample charm always enriches the process.
--Alexander Dawson, Artistic Director

Raconteur Radio

I had the pleasure of producing Jane Beverley at Jambox Entertainment Recording Studios in NYC.
From the beginning of the session to the last narration, her performance was stellar!
Her acting background provides a wonderful foundation for intuitive and detailed script analysis, enabling her to create emotional range among a variety of spots. That, combined with good timing instincts and the ability to take direction well, made for one of the most enjoyable recording sessions I can recall.
A true professional!
--Angela Castonguay, Coach and Demo Producer
