Movie Screening Of The Play Chippewa Falls 1869 Evening Showing
This is a video-taped version of the original 90 minute play, Chippewa Falls 1869: The Musical. Chippewa Falls was incorporated as a city in 1869, just four years after the Civil War ended. There were daunting challenges to be met: a major flood, a massive log jam, a devastating downtown fire, and a logging war with a rival lumber company. The city founders were resourceful, brave and hard-working, but who knew they sang so well!?! If you missed seeing the live production, make sure you come to the screening of the video produced by Bill Olson of Iconostar. Concessions will be available for sale. No cost for admission.
