MEDORA, N.D. — A Very Merry Badlands Christmas is celebrating the Christmas season with Medora Musical stars of the past and present, bringing you some of the season’s very best music in the heart of downtown Medora.

Enjoy a wonderful show featuring some of your favorite holiday songs and a dazzling finale that will remind us all of the reason for the season.

The show’s producer, Kinley Slauter, said she’s excited to spread the Christmas cheer through roughrider country with a dazzling musical number.

"It is truly a joy to get to welcome folks out to the Badlands during one of the most magical times of the year," Slauter said. "This year's show is a lot of fun and features some of the very best talent Medora has ever offered."

That cast includes five members fresh off the 2022 Medora Musical: Damon Fichter of Dickinson, as well as Jessica Bradish, Amy LeGrand, Taylor Leet-Vogel and Adam Vogel, Chad Willow and Amberly Rosen. Jonathan Acorn will be making his debut to round out the talented cast.

“The thing that’s different this year is that we’re playing exclusively in Medora. It’s at the Old Town Hall Theater,” Johnson said. “Come and have a cozy weekend getaway in Medora. Escape all the stress of the holiday season, take a couple days out of your busy schedule and relax in the Badlands.”

The show runs December 1-18. Tickets $38 plus tax and can be purchased online at
