Every year, from June to September, the Burning Hills in the North Dakota Badlands resound with music and laughter.
Billed as the "Greatest Show in the West", the Medora Musical is held in the outdoor splendor of the Burning Hills Amphitheatre a mile west of Medora. The all new Medora Musical will be performed nightly from June 2 through September 5, 2010, at 8:30 p.m. Kids are invited on stage to join in the fun at every performance.
This western musical variety show is great family entertainment, full of high-energy song and dance routines, yodeling and clog dancing, and a star-spangled, patriotic finale. A portion of the show is dedicated to 26th US President, Theodore Roosevelt.
The 70,000-acre Theodore Roosevelt National Park and its rugged topography on the Little Missouri River 35 miles north of Medora honor Roosevelt, who ranched in the Badlands and later established the national park system. He came to the Badlands in 1883 to hunt and established the Maltese Cross and Elkhorn open-range cattle ranches. The park is home to Roosevelt’s cabin and marks the original Elkhorn ranch site.
The romantic history of the Wild West lives on in historic Medora and the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame there showcases the history of Native Americans, ranching, rodeo, and the western lifestyle of the plains and Badlands.
