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.

Kier: Comic/Musician/Impressionist
Apr 28 @ 2:30 pm

Celebrate WR has had a change of artists for the 4/28/19 show due to health issues with who was originally booked. It’s now “Kier: Comic/Musician/Impressionist”.

Comedian and musician “Kier” comes to us from Nashville, TN! Kier will have you laughing your head off with great standup comedy and spot-on musical impressions to make the show rock. Kier has literally been all over the world performing at comedy clubs, on cruise ships, at colleges, and entertaining the troops. He has worked with such greats at Reba McEntire, Oprah Winfrey, Ronnie Milsap, Kevin Bacon and many others, as well as multiple appearance on the Bob & Tom Show. Kier didn’t set out to be a comedian. In fact, his boyhood dream was to be a singer-songwriter – Jackson Browne, James Taylor, that kind of guy – and even went to college on a music scholarship. Today his act is a mix of music, clean comedy and hilarious impressions of musicians you’ll definitely recognize.
