Teddy-Roosevelt-Tour
 
 
The Rough Rider Returns!

May 19-22, 2014

 

"Teddy Roosevelt's Oregon Roadshow," a live performance by historical recreator Joe Wiegand, returns for his third year for a statewide tour of schools, museums, and historical societies.

 

Sponsored by Wells Fargo, the tour will make stops in Brownsville, Dallas, Newberg, Tillamook, Roseburg, Rickreall, and Portland, among other cities.

 

In 2012, Wiegand entertained and educated Oregonians of all ages in his premiere tour of the state. He traveled more than 1,000 miles and made presentations in 12 cities, from Portland to Prineville. The tour was such a success that he returned last year and traversed another 1,500 miles, visiting schools and museums from Bend to Newport.

 

Wiegand has been bringing T.R. to life for years with his unparalleled grasp of history and uncanny resemblance to the 26th president. His depth of knowledge about the personal anecdotes in Roosevelt's life make his audiences feel they are truly in the presence of the former U.S. president and adventurer.
