We spent about an hour and a half listening to Theodore Roosevelt discuss his life and times as a child growing up, as a man who discovered the Dakota Badlands following a double tragedy in his life, and as President of the United States. An amazing depiction of our 26th President. The Town Hall Theater is comfortable and elegant, but... More

The man who plays Teddy Roosevelt -Joe Wiegand- IS Teddy Roosevelt. His presentation of TR is engaging,informative and funny! I saw him at the Family Fun Center (in Medora ND), interacting with children (TR LOVED kids), and I saw his performance at the Old Town Hall Theater--you shouldn't miss this because he will introduce you to Teddy Roosevelt (no work...

This one man show in the old theater feels like an evening with the President when he tells you the story of his life and why he left NY and the East coast to settle in Medora, ND.

Warm, interesting, very professional and convincing actor as TR. My granddaughter's teacher mentioned her knowledge of Teddy Roosevelt, months after our visit.

This is a beautiful theater. The man who does the one man Teddy Roosevelt show was not there during our visit but they played a really cool documentary of some found silent film that Hagedorn made in the Medora area, interviewing some of Teddy's friends there the year he died. We really enjoyed it.

An excellent portrayal of Teddy from his childhood, through his first visits to the Badlands and Medora, to his presidency. The actor "was" Teddy. Most entertaining and informative.

If you didn't know much about Teddy Roosevelt, this 50 minute play will tell you in an entertaining way. After the play, you understand why he is one of the 4 presidents on Mt. Rushmore. He is responsible for 10% of all the national park land we have today.
