Guests André Watts

Mister Rogers arrives with a poster advertising pianist André Watts in concert before he talks about when he himself was learning to play the piano.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is searching for Audrey Duck before her poetry reading. Audrey is hiding after being sprayed by Mr. Skunk. Lady Aberlin and Neighbor Aber encourage Audrey, building her confidence enough that she returns to the castle for her reading.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is invited to the concert hall to hear André Watts play the piano. Mr. Watts talks about how he himself has made many mistakes as he plays the piano.
