“President Theodore Roosevelt” is coming to town!  Nationally-known performer Joe Wiegand will appear for a single evening,May 15th at 7:30 p.m. at the Hales Center at Southwestern Oregon Community College. All proceeds benefit the Coos Historical & Maritime Museum. 

Wiegand performed at the White House for “TR”’s 150th birthday. His thoroughly convincing roadshow amazingly recreates the “Rough Rider” President in appearance, mannerisms and flamboyant speaking style.

Roosevelt was the first president to face many of our modern problems, including the balance of corporate power, organized labor and individual rights. This unforgettable event will stimulate your brain and your imagination, and trigger lively discussions. 

Admission is $10 at the door, and $3 for children 12 and under; $8 in advance and for members of the Coos County Historical Society. For more information, please call the Coos Historical & Maritime Museum at 541-756-6320, or visit
