Imagine the Chinese legend Hua Mulan set in the world of lucha libre—Mexican wrestling. The discovery of a worn pink wrestling mask prompts Nana Lupita, a Wisconsin grandmother, to share her tale about growing up in 1960s Texas. As her tale unfolds, Lupita's life as a teen tomboy comes alive—bike riding with her friends Leopold and Liesl, working at her father's flower stand and lucha libre. When a World Championship match is announced, Lupita anticipates seeing it until she discovers her ailing father is one of the wrestlers. With the help of a magical mask maker, Lupita secretly trains to take her father's place. She soon finds it difficult keeping her secret from her friends and, most importantly, her father.

Customer Reviews

"Absolutely a joy and blast to produce! My performers were able to truly connect with and relate to the characters and themes. The message that girls can do anything they put their mind to is so expertly woven throughout each of the female characters. The wrestling is an amazingly exciting addition. Our audiences said this was one of the best shows we had done in years."
Review by Andrew Walker, Osceola HS, kissimmee, Fla.
"It was an amazing experience. We set the play in a wrestling ring, performed in the round and we had a girls varsity wrestler coordinate the fight scenes and they were wonderful."
Review by Terry Schwinge, Santa Ana High School, Santa Ana, Calif.
