Wave, The

Synopsis:
'The Wave' is an original rock musical based on a frightening true event. A teacher, Dr. Berg, struggles to instill in his students an understanding of how a dictator like Hitler could win the support of an entire nation. He initiates an experiment based on a classroom protocol of unity, discipline and action which becomes so powerful that it disrupts the entire school. Unpopular students find acceptance and those who resist the Wave risk being ostracized and the threat of violence. During the course of this experiment the students and their teacher learn a powerful lesson. The Wave is a relevant and timeless story about the forces of fascism and social pressures. Even though it is set in a high school classroom, it speaks to all ages.

Notes:
To date it has been produced in Canada, USA, the Netherlands, And Germany And translated from English into German And Dutch
