I'm Proud of You | October 26 - November 18
by Tim Madigan and Harry Parker
Based on the book I'm Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers by Tim Madigan
Directed by Harry Parker
Music Composition by Alan Shorter
"You know him, at least if you are of a certain age, as Mister Rogers, the icon of children’s television, America’s secular saint, loving and gentle, wise and compassionate. I knew him as my friend, Fred… I considered him to be one of my closest friends. In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that if it were not for Fred Rogers, I might not be around today, alive to tell you my story..." Tim Madigan invites us into his memories and friendship with a man who shaped more than a generation—simply with his kindness.
