All of the shows playing in Medora’s Old Town Hall Theater this summer, fall and winter season

(Medora, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation is excited to announce the shows visitors can look forward to this season at the Old Town Hall Theater, in downtown Medora.

This summer the Old Town Hall Theater will be host to four shows playing all week long.

Wonderful WORK: The Harold Schafer Story (NEW)

Medora’s past is filled with giants of history. But she has one man to thank for her revival. This live, one-man show brings to life the incredible story of the man who kept Medora from disappearing completely: Harold Schafer.

Created by and starring, Tom Milligan, Wonderful WORK traces the momentous life of the charismatic North Dakota businessman — from humble beginnings and the heart-breaking setbacks to the rocketing success of Harold’s Gold Seal Company, Mr. Bubble, and of course, his love for Medora.

Experience the unexpected trials and tribulations of devoting yourself and your 40-million-dollar fortune to restoring a quaint cowtown and amphitheatre, that today has entertained millions. Important. Informative. And truly inspiring! Wonderful WORK is a new, can’t miss-show!
