Sponsor the Tradition for Your Children and Your Children's Children

The Medora Musical has entertained families in the beauty of the North Dakota Badlands since its first showing in 1965. When Harold Schafer acquired a rough-set theater in the badlands and said, "Since I own a theater, I might as well put on a show."

As Harold described the show he had in mind in those early days, he remarked that his new production had to include three things: 

1. Something for the Kids.

2. A Celebration of Theodore Roosevelt.


3. A BIG Patriotic Ending.

These three guiding principles still hold true today.

For over 50 years and four million visitors, the Medora Musical has presented a show that followed these same guiding ideas from Harold - while also changing every year's production just enough to make it a fresh, new experience.

And it's become more than "just a musical." Today, the Medora Musical has become a traditional summer adventure for families from all over the region. Many make at least one trip to Medora every year to see the show with their children, grandchildren, and, in some cases, even great-grandchildren.

This little town means something different to every visitor and its charm is special to all families. The show that Harold and his wife Sheila dreamt of - and ultimately invested their fortune into preserving for our country - is at the core of it all.
