Dinner and a Show — just how Harold did it in 1965

50 years ago, Harold Schafer embarked upon building what we know today as the Medora Musical — a show we North Dakotans are proud to call our own, that has now entertained nearly 4 Million people. One of the very first things Harold did to bring guests to his new show was rent charter busses and fill them up with curious folks from Bismarck-Mandan, telling them he was taking them to “Dinner and a show!”

For one day only, September 11, the final Friday of the 50th Anniversary Season of the Medora Musical, we’re bringing back one of Harold’s first ideas to promote the Medora Musical. 

Thanks to our friends at Harlow’s Trailways and iHeart Media Bismarck, you can jump on the Harlow’s Harold Bus to Medora, see the show on the final Friday of the season, and sleep in your own bed that same night (although it’ll be a little late after all that fun.)


This One Day Trip Includes

  • Round trip, same-day charter travel to Medora — leave and return on Friday, September 11
  • FREE and exclusive greeting from Medora Musical Cast and TRMF President Randy Hatzenbuhler
