To Seussify or not to Seussify DeQuan Perry Staff Writer The KCC Encore Theater presents The Suessification of Romeo and Juliet. The one-act play is based on the wellknown William Shakespeare production, Romeo and Juliet. However, Encore Theater has added a Dr. Seuss inspired flare. Romeo and Juliet will have humor and rhyme mixed into the story of the forbidden love. As an actor, I’ve always wanted to direct my own show. I’ve acted, stage managed and assistant directed; but now, I’ve seized the chance to direct. Even though

The Seussificiton of Romeo and Juliet is only a one-act play, I will still get a head start to work on my major with my best friend at my side. The cast brings a show that will make the audience laugh so hard the crowd will fall out of their seats. Cast includes Jayla Johnson, James Calloway, Jared Sheldon, Josh Lorenzen, Patrick Lucas, Khaliid Canales-King, Alicia Brunner, Jesse Cowles, Alexander Bacik, Joe Green, Jenna Speckhals, Andy Yerby, George Martinez, Victoria Elyea, Sandy Sinkler, Jonah Maggard, Braulio Green, & Chelsea Lathrop. Stage Managing and Assistant Direction: James Sims. The cast is made up of KCC Students, alumni, and members of the community.

The Doctor does not wish for romance because he is a time lord, a nearly immortal being who is currently over 1000 years of age.

hope with an amazing Christmas special and promises of an all new story arc involving a girl who’s died twice! Doctor Who isn’t a television series someone could easily get lost in. It’s a television epic that everyone should be lost in. No matter where the series is or where it goes, Doctor Who always welcomes new viewers with an addicting and tense atmosphere and hilarious comic relief. New episodes are hitting BBC and it’s definitely worth a watch. You can also expect them to hit Netflix anytime soon, as well as get caught up on the entire series. ~Dylan Konway would like all Whovians to unite under the ultimate question!
