Fort Worth Sundance Square — October 6 — Circle Theatre, a professional regional theatre located in Fort Worth’s Sundance Square, is proud to open the fifth show of its 2023 season! Circle Theatre brings its 2023 Season to a close with the world premiere of I’m Proud of You. This nostalgic, tender, and real script is based off the book I’m Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers by Tim Madigan. It has been adapted for the stage by Tim Madigan and Harry Parker. “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.
