The legacy of the beloved Mister Rogers lives on in the hit television series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, from The Fred Rogers Company, that airs daily on PBS Kids. Now, Daniel and his friends are hopping aboard Trolley to delight theatre audiences with Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE!

Donning his iconic red sweater, Daniel leads an interactive musical adventure as he and his friends explore the vibrant world of their much-loved Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Along the way they share stories of friendship, helping others, and celebrating new experiences. This live theatrical production—filled with singing, dancing, laughter, and “grr-ific” surprises—is sure to warm the hearts of multiple generations.

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood builds on the pioneering PBS show Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
