Pippa White: “Far as the Eye Can See”
Nov 4 @ 2:30 pm

Celebrate Wood River is excited to bring Pippa back for another moving and insightful look into the past. Pippa White’s productions are “part theatre, part storytelling, part history.” Audiences call them unique, captivating and touching! As a storyteller, she has toured to over 30 states after an extensive career in theater in TV on the West Coast.
“Far As The Eye Can See” celebrates the prairie and its people: the early pioneers who crossed it, the later pioneers who settled it, the brave people of the Dust Bowl who fought to save it, and the Native American people who struggled to keep the prairie that once belonged only to them.

Darrel Draper: “Theodore Roosevelt: Rough Rider President”
Mar 3 @ 2:30 pm

Historical Re-enactor Darrel Draper will portray Theodore Roosevelt in a unique educational and entertaining program. Our 26th President of the United States and better known as “Teddy”, he was famous for his energetic personality and “cowboy” image. Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held. Draper, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Roosevelt, has been described by audience members as “an awesome and absolutely wonderful performer” who is able to transport listeners back in time to the era of his characters. His humor and knowledge of history have delighted audiences aged 8 to 80, explaining why he is one of the most requested speakers in the Nebraska Humanities Council’s Speakers Bureau Program.

Gordy & Dalyce Comedy & Music Show
Apr 28 @ 2:30 pm

Gordy and Dalyce combine their unique brand of Americana, music, comedy and virtuosic guitar performances to leave you laughing and feeling good. Called the “Victor Borge of the Guitar,” Gordy will mesmerize with world-class guitar playing and stand-up musical comedy. His fingers fl y as he plays Bach and Bluegrass in the same breath — think Mozart on “12 cups of good, strong cowboy coffee”. Dalyce has been performing since kindergarten for anyone who would listen, then singing in rock and roll bands. The two combined forces in 2017 giving birth to a brand new family-friendly, character-driven comedy and music show for all ages. Come enjoy yourself!
