April 12, 2022     Runestone! A Rock Musical 
 Presented by: Mark Jensen

Kensington native and playwright, Mark Jensen, of New Hope will speak about all the research he did for the musical  he developed entitled, "Runestone! A Rock Musical." The runestone found in 1898 on the Olof Ohman farm,  northeast of Kensington, MN, has been controversial from its discovery. The musical centers on Olof Ohman and his family as they grapple with accusations that Olof carved the runes as a hoax.

Mark is writing the book and lyrics, and Gary Rue is composing the music and writing additional lyrics. Runestone! A Rock Musical will open in May 2022 at the History Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
