Theodore Roosevelt comes to life in this vivid and rousing presentation. Learn about Theodore Roosevelt as President, husband, father, soldier, hunter, and Badlands rancher. Roosevelt is portrayed by Joe Wiegand who performs this role nationally, including a White House appearance for President George W. Bush.
You may have recently seen Wiegand as Theodore Roosevelt in the History Channel’s, The Men Who Built America or in NFL Films, Centennial of the Forward Pass. TR will answer your questions at the end of the show. On occasion, Theodore Roosevelt and Edith Roosevelt will be portrayed by Larry and Julia Marple, veteran educators and re-enactors from Ohio.
Performances take place in the Old Town Hall Theater. The box office opens thirty minutes before each show. The Old Town Hall Theater is handicap accessible via a wheelchair lift.
