Morton Rhue's „The Wave“ has become classic literature throughout central Europe. It is based on a true story in an American high school in 1969 in which a teacher through an experiment attempted to demonstrate firsthand to the pupils how fascism became so powerful in the III-Reich. The setting is the typical American high school of the late 1960's replete with music of the period in which naïve, innocent pupils, most unable at first glance to pinpoint either Europe let alone Germany on a map, have their day in class. With the introduction of „The Wave“ the story takes a sharp turn in another direction and suddenly becomes very serious. This production is action packed and is interwoven with live music sung and performed by the actors.
