The Return of Teddy Roosevelt 2016

Once again, WGN Radio’s John Williams welcomes the 26th President to the MAC Theatre at College of DuPage on Saturday, August 12 for two shows, at 10am and 1pm. This year’s conversation, “Big Schtick”, promises to be a rousing review of Roosevelt’s life and adventures and his views on current events. John Williams and TR will discuss his feather-ruffling past and our current feather-ruffling days. The visits with Teddy Roosevelt are always uplifting and memorable. And remember – no two shows are alike! These are live, unrehearsed conversations and you get to ask questions, too!

Mr. Roosevelt will once again be portrayed by the much-sought author and humanities scholar Clay Jenkinson; John Williams will be portrayed by the thinker of big thoughts, the curious and quirky, John Williams.

And mark your calendars, too, for two special shows on Saturday, December 2nd at Elgin Community College. At 10am, it’s the return of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson and at 1pm, we welcome American explorer and politician Meriwether Lewis! Tickets for these shows will go on sale mid-September.
