Spent two days in Medora doing the Musical, Steak Fondue, Chateau, etc. We enjoyed Joe Wiegand's hour as Theodore Roosevelt at the Old Town Hall Theater the most of anything we did. He was mesmerizing. We are great TR fans, and found this characterization captivating. Very talented individual and wonderful presentation. Thank you, Joe Wiegand!

The reenactor's name is Joe Wiegand. He has appeared as TR on the History Channel, in nationwide performances, and also was invited to the White House to perform for President George W. Bush. That being said, this is a professional one-man show that will have you enthralled. From the hilarious and heart-touching stories, to the big booming laugh, commanding voice... More

The ticket was $10 and well worth the one hour history of TR. The guy that portrays TR was excellent and could almost pass as his twin. I recommend this to anyone visiting in Medora.

I have to start out by saying I'm slightly obsessed with TR and have read a great deal about him. With that as a background, I was really impressed by the one hour performance delivered in the quaint theater. It was historically accurate and the performer mixed humor and drama to grip the audience. He knitted together quite a performance... More

We saw the show today and I can only say make time for it. It is wonderfully performed, informative, humorous and an excellent history lesson with a human approach. We missed this show the first time we visited Medora so this a must see. Spouse is not a play person but he went along and very happy he did. This... More

The gentleman who portrayed Theodore Roosevelt seems to be the real Teddy! He stays in character after the show also and greets you as you leave and pictures are a must! He is entertaining as well as informative. It is the second time we have seen him and I wouldn't have missed it. He made me appreciate President Roosevelt more... More

This was an enjoyable hour spent with an excellent Teddy Roosevelt impersonator. He gave a good overview of Teddy's life with some interesting stories behind the events that are not well known. The only draw-backs were that Teddy started 10 minutes late, which made us anxious about making another tour on-time, and the noise level of the audience was unbearable.... More

This is worth the time and money. We sat up front with our kids and granddaughters. Before long, it was almost as if Roosevelt was there. Would recommend doing this before going to the park as it helped gain a new appreciation of Roosevelt and his life. Would not recommend for 4 and younger.

We're not big history buffs, but my wife and I really enjoyed getting to know Teddy and his wife. We walked away with a new appreciation of his accomplishments, humor, and general attitude toward life -- very inspiring! Cost of the show was only $9.50, and it was well worth it.
