(Medora, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, in conjunction with StageWest Entertainment, is excited to announce the cast and band of the 2016 Medora Musical. Following the conclusion of thousands of auditions in North Dakota, Minnesota, and Tennessee, a new host, veteran co-host, and 12 all-star Burning Hills Singers have been selected for this year’s performance.
Long time Burning Hills Singer, Chet Wollan, will take on a brand-new role as the host of this year’s Medora Musical. His charming, musical approach will be balanced, of course, by his lovable antagonist, Bill Sorensen, who returns as co-host for his fourth straight year.

Theodore Roosevelt fell in love with these loyal, versatile, and beautiful creatures during his African Safari in 1909.
