Theodore Roosevelt To Perform At Edgewood Vista, Touchmark Locations

Performances provided at no charge through partnership with TR Medora Foundation and Assisted Living Facilities
 

(Medora, ND) – The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation is excited to announce an update to its annual “TR Tour” that includes donated performances to residents of senior living locations around the state.

The annual tour by “Medora’s Thedore Roosevelt,” has taken place each spring for the last four years and has included stops at locations ranging from numerous elementary schools, to the training facility of “America’s Big Stick,” Minot Air Force Base’s 91st Missile Wing — aptly named after Roosevelt’s U.S. Army Unit, the Rough Riders.

This year’s tour, while including private gatherings for supporters of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation, will focus on giving back to North Dakota seniors living in assisted living facilities.

Medora’s Theodore Roosevelt is portrayed by the renowned repriser, Joe Wiegand, who travels internationally bringing the 26th President to life. Wiegand has performed as Theodore Roosevelt at the White House, for documentaries on the History Channel, at Wrigley Field during the 2016 World Series, and during the Centennial Celebration of the National Park System in 2016, to name a few.

Wiegand reprises Roosevelt all summer long in Medora, in his entertaining and historically accurate show A TR Salute to Medora, that shows June 2 – September 9 this summer.

The full schedule of donated shows is below. Media and family of residents are invited to attend.
