The White Rose by Jenne Wason & Alan Cancelino
The White Rose is a new musical based on the true story of a group of German University students that waged a war of resistance against Hitler and the Third Reich. It follows nine months in the life of Sophie Scholl, who arrives in Munich on her 21st birthday with no idea she is about to become a leader in a perilous movement that will bring hope to a nation.
