Adventures in Wonderland
“Christopher Stalzer taps up a storm as the
madcap Mad Hatter.” The Hamilton Spectator, 2012
Stalzer and the long-legged Adji Cissoko in the comic mismatching of physiques
in the ‘Alaskan Rag.’ They almost stole the show” The Toronto Star, 2012
“Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, danced with youthful bravado and swagger by Robert Stephen and Christopher Stalzer, respectively.”
