Take a trip back in time with Roosevelt and Muir

Written by 

A performance depicting John Muir and President Teddy Roosevelt called the “The Tramp and the Roughrider” will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 8, at the Highlands Playhouse.

Journey back to May 1903 to an evening around the campfire in Yosemite Valley with Roosevelt and Muir, America’s best-known conservationist. Hear them spar over environmental and wilderness issues. Enjoy their amazing adventure stories. Witness the conversations that helped lead Roosevelt to establish 200 million acres of wilderness, five new national parks and 65 wildlife preserves during his presidency.

The performance is hosted by the Jackson-Macon Conservation Alliance and serves as a fundraiser for the organization.

Lee Stetson has been the Voice of John Muir for over 25 years and was featured in the acclaimed Ken Burns documentary “National Parks: America’s Best Idea.” Joe Wiegland has been reprising Theodore Roosevelt for six years and performed at the White House in 2008 in honor of Roosevelt’s 150th birthday. 

$35. 828.526.0890, ext. 320 or www.j-mca.org.

To see the performance in Asheville on Oct. 7 instead, contact Western North Carolina Alliance at www.wnca.org or 828.258.8737.

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
