delanie wiedrich - 2014 Burning Hills Singer

It is a beautiful May morning when I wake up in a hotel bed in Plymouth, Minnesota. I lay there for just a moment, trying to wrap my head around what is happening.

Within the past 24 hours my world has been flipped upside down; I have turned 18, left my hometown, said goodbye to my friends and family, not quite completed high school, and am starting my first professional job as a Burning Hills Singer in the Medora Musical. Panic is about to set in when I rip myself from the comfort of my bed and dress myself for the day. READ MORE »

2014 Medora Musical Cast

This blog was written by Burning Hill Singer Damon Fichter. It is his first blog in a series of blogs from North Dakota Burning Hills Singers.

I’m currently in a van packed, full of Burning Hills Singers, on our way to Watford City where we will perform at a school and nursing home. As I see everyone relaxing and chatting during our ride, I sometimes forget we are all here for a job. Really?! I am getting paid to sing and dance with my friends. I am only 21 and I feel like I have one of the best jobs in the world. READ MORE »

 The Moment

Ten days into rehearsals, it’s time to leave our Minneapolis studio/rehearsal space and relocate to our home stage in Medora, ND. Some music is now memorized, some dances are in our bodies, the script is under revision, and we have one completed costume. After a promotional performance in Fargo and a few in Bismarck, we finally arrive in Medora for our first on-site rehearsal!

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.

MistiKoop 2012

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 »

I have wanted to audition for the Medora Musical ever since I was a child. I have enjoyed watching the show almost every year of my life. As an aspiring performer from Dickinson, North Dakota, this opportunity will also give me a fantastic foundation to continue furthering my career.

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.

A Love Story: Medora and You.

Medora’s a special place. With all the love and giving that goes into everything we do here this comes as no surprise.
