Quick! When does the 50th Anniversary Season of the Medora Musical start? Many of you would say June 5 – and you’d be right. But ask Erica Zaffarano, the Medora Musical Set Designer, and she’ll give you a much earlier date.

“We start consulting with the Foundation in the first week of January. Once we get on site, roughly by the end of May, we usually stay till three or four days after opening night of the Musical.”
