Run time: 120 minutes (15 minute intermission)
Make Believe Neighborhood honors the life and legacy of Fred Rogers and celebrates the ordinary people who do extra-ordinary work to make our own neighborhood a brighter, healthier, friendlier place. Director Bart Buch combines puppets, music, and visual imagery to tell the story of Neighborhood Helpers in our own South Minneapolis communities - people who hold up the light through helping other people and communities believe in themselves, making better lives and neighborhoods.
Join In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre as we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood and shine a light on some of our wonderful neighbors. Vignettes from throughout Freds life are interspersed with videos and scenes from our own South Minneapolis neighborhood and tied together with gorgeous music performed live by Martin Dosh. "Make Believe Neighborhood" also features performers Seth Eberle, Masanari Kawahara, angela olson, and Laurie Witzkowski.
This program is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
