St. Norbert College's student-run Knight Theatre will present "Seussical the Musical" on Jan. 27- 29 at 7:30 p.m., Jan. 30 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and at 2:00 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Webb Theatre.

"Seussical the Musical" combines the many magical worlds of Dr. Seuss to offer a unique and fun-filled experience for the entire family. The Cat in the Hat, played by senior Seth Wanta (Plover, Wis.), guides the audience through the endeavors of Horton the Elephant, played by junior David Gusloff (Elmhurst, Ill.), as he desperately tries to protect the denizens of Who, "the tiniest planet in the sky." Horton vows to protect his new friend, but the other jungle creatures eventually steal the clover. Horton's struggles to get it back send him all over the world of Dr. Seuss -- eventually landing him up in a tree caring for the egg of Mayzie La Bird, played by senior Elizabeth Sauter (Appleton, Wis.), and to New York City as part of the Circus McGurkus.
