Metro Theater Company Visit

metro banner Pershing students enjoyed a special performance of Frida Libre by the Metro Theater Company.

Inspired by the childhood of legendary Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Frida Libre is the uplifting story of young Frida who plans to become a doctor and her new friend Alex who secretly wishes to be a wrestler. Thrown together on a science project about metamorphosis, the two go on a delightful journey in this musical performance that features original songs and explores the meaning of transformation, bravery, understanding and acceptance.

Special thanks to Pershing second-grade teacher for coordinating the experience.
