Theodore Roosevelt to Visit Custer State Park


CUSTER STATE PARK, S.D. – Gib Young as Theodore Roosevelt will make an appearance at Custer State Park on Wednesday, July 5.  The performance will take place at the Tatanka Theatre in Game Lodge Campground at 7:00pm.


Gib Young has been a lifelong admirer of Theodore Roosevelt.  Mr. Roosevelt’s personality, intellect, and zest for life were an irresistible call to Gib.  But it wasn’t until about ten years ago that a local teacher convinced Mr. Young to come to a fifth grade class as the 26th President.  The ‘challenge’ and fun of that small event led to an acceleration of study of ‘TR’s’ history and a development of period clothing and spectacles. 


Gib Young, as Theodore Roosevelt, will be mingling at the Custer State Park Visitor Center 6:00pm – 6:30pm for autographs and photographs prior to his performance at 7pm at the Tatanka Theatre.  Autographs and photographs will also be available after his performance.


Please go to the Custer State Park website for more programming opportunities:

There is no cost for the program; however, a park entrance license is required.  For more information contact the park office at 605-255-4515.
