Two young talents join show veteran in the 2014 Medora Musical
(MEDORA, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, in conjunction with StageWest Entertainment, is excited to announce that three North Dakotans will join the Burning Hills Singers for the 2014 Medora Musical.
Damon Fichter, Dickinson, and Delanie Wiedrich, Hazen, will join the Burning Hills Singers for the first time this season. Both were selected after February’s auditions in Bismarck and Fargo, where they beat out a talented field of performers vying for a spot in the 2014 Medora Musical. Misti Koop, Grand Forks, will return for her second season in the Medora Musical.
“This audition season we saw well over 1,200 singers and dancers from all over the country – and the talent level was at an all-time high,” says Medora Musical Executive Producer and Director, Curt Wollan. “It was particularly impressive to see so many first time auditionees from North Dakota who were so well prepared. These new, young Burning Hills Singers stood out at the auditions because of their wonderful stage presence and beautiful voices and they will certainly make North Dakota proud during this Medora Musical season.” READ MORE »
