Frida Libre

Alex may seem like a quiet, shy boy, but he secretly holds big ideas inside his head. He wants to be a luchador (wrestler) and defeat bad guys in the ring. His life changes when he meets brave and colorful Frida, an unusual girl who dreams of being a doctor so she can help people. Forced to do a science project together on butterflies and metamorphosis,the pair discovers how true friendship can help you overcome fear and transform your dreams into reality.

Inspired by the childhood of legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Frida Libre is an uplifting story full of physical acting (actors become trees, trains and sinks), featuring delightful songs that explore the meaning of friendship, bravery and transformation.

Commissioned and toured by La Jolla Playhouse.
