Veterans Day in Medora

All Veterans and active duty service members are invited to a special day in Medora with their families as we honor their service to our Country.

The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TRMF) will be hosting a series of special events in Medora Sunday, July 10 to honor our nation’s veterans. The annual Veterans Day Celebration salutes those who have served in the United States military.

The ceremonies will culminate with a flyover by three WWII fighter aircraft: a P-51 Mustang named “Boomer,” piloted by Fargo-based Toby McPherson, as well as a P-40 Warhawk and Navy Corsair (images below) from the world-famous Texas Flying Legends museum. Both McPherson and the Texas Flying Legends are active in supporting veterans across the nation. READ MORE »

Bison Abound in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

President Obama just named the bison as America’s National Mammal! Now bison aren’t nearly as prevalent today as they used to be during Theodore Roosevelt’s time in Dakota Territory, but you can still see plenty of them in his namesake national park, Theodore Roosevelt National Park — the backyard of Medora, North Dakota and the New York Times’ #5 place to visit in 2016!

Here’s a few photos from our many bison encounters over the years! READ MORE »

Q & A with 2014 Burning Hills Singer, Misti Koop

Q & A with 2014 Burning Hills Singer, Misti Koop

1) What made you decide to audition for the Medora Musical again?

I am very excited to be coming back to Medora this summer.


Unlike other shows I’ve been a part of, The Medora Musical is unique and wonderful on a different level. I’m not trying to exaggerate.

At the closing of Medora 2012, I had gained several lifelong friends from our cast and crew. If your parents or teachers have ever told you, “surround yourself with exceptional people, and you will strive to be exceptional too,” then please believe them. That is exactly what I experienced as a Burning Hills Singer in The Medora Musical. Performing in this beautiful setting to a huge amphitheater of people who are truly glad to be there, and performing with a group of friendly, positive performers who give their ALL every night and LOVE what they do… is a top notch experience, in my book!

Q & A with 2014 Burning Hills Singer, Delanie Wiedrich


1)  What made you decide to, or want to, audition for the Medora Musical?

I’ve watched the Medora Musical since I was five years old. It was my first experience with musical theatre and really sparked my interest and love of the stage. I remember going up on the stage during the allotted children’s time and being in complete awe! Ever since, the Medora Musical has been something I’ve always wanted to be a part of.  I was going to audition last year, but I was only 17 at the time. Actually, I’m still 17. I’ll be turning 18 on May 8th, the day before rehearsals begin! Anyway, when I heard auditions were in Bismarck it was a “Why not?” moment. It was my first professional audition. READ MORE »

2013 Cast Video — What do you love about being in the Medora Musical?

2013 Cast Video — What do you love about being in the Medora Musical?

We shot this short video last fall, before our wonderful Burning Hills Singers took a [much needed] break. We wanted our fans and followers to be able to get to know them a little bit more — and man we think you’ll enjoy the time with them in this video. We saved it for now, though, so we can enjoy it together as we count down the days until the 2014 Medora Musical!

Enjoy! And feel free to share with your friends.
