Will it ruin your day if I use the word ‘snowblower? A guest blog by Clay Jenkinson.

Will it ruin your day if I use the word ‘snowblower? A guest blog by Clay Jenkinson.

This post was written by Clay Jenkinson, and originally published in his weekly column for the Bismarck Tribune.

July is almost gone. Any day now the box stores will carve out large spaces for school supplies. We all know what’s coming — what every North Dakotan knows must come — and it makes us want to linger outdoors in the evening, makes us want to schedule more picnics, more hikes, more days at the lake, more time on the river, more afternoons in the Badlands than we would think appropriate if this were southern California and summer lasted forever.

We cannot afford to pace ourselves here. North Dakotans have to squeeze in an awful lot of recreation between July 1 and Labor Day. It’s use it or lose it on the northern plains.

My daughter and I were in Medora last week to see the Medora Musical with the great Sheila Schafer, now enjoying her 50th summer in the Badlands. 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!

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.
