Wiedrich, Fichter chosen to sing in Medora Musical
The Medora Musical has chosen its cast for this year’s season, and two locals have made the cut.
Misti Koop, Grand Forks, will return for her second season. She performed for the musical in 2012.
The committee that selected the three saw more than 1,200 singers and dancers from across the country, all vying for a spot in the annual musical, according to the release. The talent was at an all-time high, said Curt Wollan, Medora Musical executive producer and director.
“It was particularly impressive to see so many first-time auditionees from North Dakota who were so well prepared,” Wollan said. “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.”
A full lineup of singers is near completion and will be announced at a future date, according to the release. The musical runs June 6 through Sept. 6 at the Burning Hills Amphitheatre in Medora.
