by Nora Louise Syran


1) Vikings wore horns 

2) Napoleon was short  

3) Marie Antoinette said “let them eat cake” 

History comes alive as students learn that fake news is old news and disinformation can be disastrous. With the school principal waiting for the slightest excuse to fire the students’ favorite teacher, Mr Parker, and Charlotte Locus manipulating the media to become Student Council President, will the students learn from the past or will they be doomed to repeat it? A trope-filled, historical myth-busting comedy, with a couple of songs thrown in.
