“Teddy Roosevelt comes alive”

Old Town Hall Theater
Ranked #6 of 17 things to do in Medora
Attraction details
Reviewed July 4, 2013

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. He admits to coming West as a tenderfoot and evolving into a cowboy rough rider. The impersonation is so lifelike you will know you spent your admission fee well, and learned a great deal of history at the same time.

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.
