Teddy Roosevelt’s Oregon Roadshow, a live performance by
historical recreator Joe Wiegand, will visit Coos Bay for a special event at 5:30 pm on
Thursday, October 10, 2019, as part of a week-long tour of schools and museums
sponsored by the Oregon Historical Society and Wells Fargo.
The Coos History Museum will host a fundraising event in conjunction with Wiegand’s
visit, October 10, beginning at 5:30 pm. Tickets for museum members are $100 per person and
tickets for non-members are $125 per person. The evening will include a catered
meal by Black Market Gourmet, no-host bar by 7 Devils Brewing Company, a silent
auction, a live auction, and Wiegand’s program. Tickets go on sale September 6 and
space is limited. Tickets may be purchased at the Coos History Museum, located at
1210 North Front Street, in Coos Bay, or by calling the museum at 541.756.6320.
For the past four years, Wiegand has entertained and educated people of all ages as he
traversed more than 5,000 miles across Oregon.
“I have personally seen ‘Teddy’ perform over 75 times, yet each time I am blown away
by his energy and how he truly embodies our 26th President,” said OHS Executive
Director Kerry Tymchuk.
Wiegand has been bringing T.R. to life for years with his unparalleled grasp of history
and uncanny resemblance to the famed Rough Rider. His depth of knowledge about the personal anecdotes in Roosevelt’s life make his audiences feel they are truly in the
presence of the former U.S. president and adventurer.
