The Medora Musical is pleased to announce that Medora veterans Bill Sorensen and Emily Walter will co-host this season’s show.
Bill Sorensen has been involved in Medora for the past thirty years. During those years, he has been a versatile variety performer, acting as a host, magician and producer for the popular 4M Revue, where he has produced at least two thousand shows. When he’s not involved in Medora, Bill enjoys a varied career as a successful businessman, venture capitalist, boxing manager, athletic promoter, public speaker/entertainer and public official. Bill served 12 years as the mayor of Bismarck; prior to that he served two terms as a state legislator and two terms as a Bismarck City Commissioner.
“Medora has been a labor of love,” says Bill. “I have had the opportunity to watch my four daughters grow up in this place. I never expected to be doing this for this long nor did I anticipate the overwhelming support that I’ve received from the thousands who have come to Medora over the years.”
Emily Walter, a Wisconsin native, was a Burning Hills singer from 1993 through 1995. Emily’s performance during those seasons led her to being named one of a select few entertainers approved to portray the legendary Patsy Cline by the Patsy Cline estate. A veteran of the first Gulf War, Emily was the lead vocalist with the U.S. SAC Band, where she worked with such stars as Lee Greenwood, and legends Bob Hope and John Denver. Since receiving her Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Mankato State University in 1995, she has traveled extensively around the world playing roles that have varied from Shakespeare to Annie Oakley.
“I’ve traveled the world but Medora holds a special place in my heart. It always pulls me back,” says Emily. “So it was impossible for me to turn down the chance to come back to co-host the show.”
Show organizers say both Bill and Emily will headline a production that will have a stronger western theme to it than previous seasons.
“We have always branded the Musical as the Greatest Show in the West,” says Medora Musical manager Kinley Slauter. “This year’s show will stay true to our show’s roots by providing audiences with true western entertainment.”
