The spirited folks on Keppoch Mountain are pulling together to raise the money to keep their school open. In this Ships of 1801 production, the Keppoch families are again short on cash but rich in talent so they straighten their skirts, turn down their rubber boots and put on a community concert. When two strikingly different candidates apply for the teaching position, they have to decide whether it is Latin or Gaelic they want echoing from the one room school. Then the talk turns to curriculum trends and classroom discipline. Pull up a seat in the MacLean farmhouse kitchen for the music and stories of Hollywood, lumber camps, berry picking, courting, moonshine and the surprising frailties of outdoor toilets.
