“I’ve always wanted to have a neighbor just like you. I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.”
Make Believe Neighborhood celebrates Mr. Rogers and the neighborhood helpers he told us to look for – the ordinary people who do extra-ordinary work to make our own South Minneapolis neighborhood a brighter, healthier, friendlier place. Join us as we explore Fred Rogers’ amazing life as an advocate for children, an artist, a friend, a peace activist, and everyday person. At the same time, we’ll shine a spotlight on some of the neighbors who have made our community what it is today.
Directed by Bart Buch with Musical Direction by Martin Dosh
