Local treasure, the Kensington Runestone is getting its own musical.  “Runestone! A ‘Rock’ Musical” will be playing at the History Theatre in St. Paul this spring. The composer Mark Jensen starts in 1898:   When Swedish immigrant Olof Ohman digs up a rock on his property near Kensington, then his life was turned upside down when people called him a liar…it was later authenticated after his death and is housed at the Runestone Museum in Alexandria.
