“Winston Churchill” is coming to Fort Scott. For those who enjoyed “Teddy Roosevelt” in 2016, the Friends of Fort Scott National Historic Site are bringing “Winston Churchill” to the Liberty Theatre on Saturday, March 31, 2018, for their Annual Friends Fest.
Randy Otto is Winston and he is the only Winston Churchill impersonator endorsed by the Churchill family. He is a nationally acclaimed “Winston” and the Friends group wanted to bring another impersonator to Fort Scott on the caliber with Teddy Roosevelt who performed at the 2016 Friends Fest.
Randy Otto’s recitation’s genesis was a simple encouragement from Otto’s University British History Professor in 1973. He encouraged Otto not only to study Churchill’s life academically but to emulate the great man on stage.
An alumnus of the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre and numerous theatrical roles, Otto over the past 43 years has been a Churchill scholar, motivational speaker, and performance artist who has honed the concept into a one-man show designed to entertain and electrify.
The event on March 31 will feature Otto’s performance with an appetizer buffet prior to the performance. Tickets are $35 and are available this week at the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce.
