"The Third Wave Musical"
Book and lyrics by Ron Jones

Music and Lyrics by David Denny, Kathy Peck Denny and Emily Klion

Published worldwide by Dramatic Publishing

The Third Wave Musical tells the true story of a classroom experiment in facism which takes place in January 1967 at Cubberley High School in Palo Alto, California. It is a time of anti-war protests, racial intergration and a cultural revolution. To answer a student's question about how the holocaust could happen, a young teacher, Mr. Jones, decides to give his world history class an exercise in discipline-the experience of being in a totalitarian society. To his surprize, the students like the order and power that comes with discipline. No one could predict the explosive events to follow.

Here is a new video featuring The Artist's Plight, a poem written by Logan Clarke in 1978, with beautifully written music by George Michalski, a soulful narration by David Denny that features the emotional ride depicting the agony and the ecstacy of the artist. Please feel free to share. The Artist's Plight is a poem that has grown in popularity over the years passed on from artist to artist.
