Thousand Islands Performing Arts Fund release

CLAYTON – Nationally acclaimed Teddy Roosevelt impersonator Joe Wiegand will perform at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Clayton Opera House.

Joe Wiegand is regarded as the nation's premiere impersonator of Theodore Roosevelt. Before becoming Teddy Roosevelt, Wiegand had a 25-year career in politics and public policy in his native Illinois.

In 2008, after running gubernatorial and presidential campaigns in the Land of Lincoln, Wiegand set out with his wife, Jenny, daughter, Sam, and golden retriever, Faith, on a 50-state tour celebrating Theodore Roosevelt 's sesquicentennial birthday and the centennial of his final year in office. The adventure was highlighted by a performance at the White House for President and Mrs. George W. Bush on Theodore Roosevelt's 150th birthday.

Immediately following the performance, audience members are invited to step outside to enjoy the Clayton fireworks display. Fireworks to celebrate Independence Day will begin at dusk and can be viewed from vantage points along Riverside Drive.

Showtime is 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Clayton Opera House Box Office, by calling 686-2200 or by visiting www.claytonoperahouse.com.
