Theodore Roosevelt
Actor Arch Ellwein presents a riveting first person portrayal of the 26th President of the United States.
Fun and inspirational (see photos on other pages)
"I begin the program as myself and prepare the audience by explaining TR's idiosyncracies. Then I BECOME Theodore in 1911. After charging around the room shaking hands TR recalls his sickly childhood and events that bring him to the Presidency. This is followed by the dramatic bear hunt and the comical origin of the Teddy Bear. Character is the theme of the motivational finish.
I come out of character at the conclusion to field any questions in time remaining."
An Anti-Bullying Message
TR stood down bullies all his life even as President. Observe National Bully Prevention Month in October by also observing TRs birthdate, October 27, 1858.

"I just wanted to send you a short note to say thank you for the wonderful presentation to our boys (and their siblings)!
I talked to several of the Scouts individually and they all said they really, really enjoyed your show. The parents were equally pleased that the boys were not only entertained, but also getting science education at the same time. It was a win-win event for everyone" - Beth Ross, Cub Scout Banquet Organizer, Laurel MT
