The professional cast of each season’s Medora Musical hails from all across the nation – with talented members of the cast often coming from the Show’s home state, North Dakota.

Over the 51-year history of the show, many cast members have gone on to very successful performance careers. Two Medora Musical veterans who’ve enjoyed recent success include, Jared Mason (Lillis), star of the Tony-award-winning Broadway Musical, Million Dollar Quartet, and, of course, Kat Perkins, who took the nation by storm during her time on NBC’s The Voice.

Singers, dancers and musicians are required to prepare an up tempo and a ballad for the audition. Prospective performers should also bring sheet music in the correct key, a resume, and an 8×10 photo.
