Magical Medora Christmas tour back for third year

The magic of Medora takes to the road again this holiday season with 27 performances of a music and magic variety show in 22 communities, including a 7:30 p.m. MST Nov. 25 show at Babcock Theater in Billings, Mont.

A Magical Medora Christmas will feature five of the top performers to have graced the stage of the Burning Hills Amphitheater, including former Medora Musical hosts Emily Walter, Bill Sorensen and Job Christenson, yodeler extraordinaire Jared Mason, and Chad Willow, longtime bandleader at the Medora Musical.

"This year we are excited to bring this heart-warming production to even more venues across the upper Midwest," said Randy Hatzenbuhler, president of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation.

New to this year's show is Chad Willow, pianist, singer, and banjo player from Minnesota, who appeared on the bandstand for 12 seasons of the Medora Musical as associate musical director of the show and leader of the Coal Diggers band. He produced and recorded a vocal bluegrass record entitled Scarecrow, with musicians from the Medora Musical bandstand stage.

This year the Magical Medora Christmas tour stops in 15 communities in North Dakota, two in Montana, four in Minnesota and one in South Dakota. Tickets for all shows are $25 and are available now at www.medora.com Tickets will also be available at local banks in the host communities. Tickets for the Henning show can be purchased at First National Bank of Henning Ottertail and Battle Lake.

Forum Communications and the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation are sponsoring the tour.
