This is a MUCH different post.

A play was found in the Kjelstad family attic. It was written by students from the Edgerton school, which was in Ohop Valley, not far from the Pioneer Farm stands today.

Paulette Van Cleve had her Eatonville 5th grade class perform it for the 2nd grade class . . . roughly 100 years after it was written.  It involves the Torger Peterson family and the Anderson family. ABob Walters captured the play on video and was kind enough to post it on YouTube.com.

Here is Act 1 and Act II.

As you can see the kids really got into it. Also, there are reports from the second graders that it was a hit.

Thank you Bob Walter for filing and posting, and to all the students then and now that made it possible!
