What happens when a small-town Ontario teenager runs off into the forest in search of adventure? Why, she meets an anxious bear in the midst of an identity crisis, of course! Combining the joys of a folk concert with the timeless wisdom of a folktale, Ursa: A Folk Musical weaves a whimsical story of star-crossed friendship. This unforgettable exploration of the anxieties and euphorias of young adulthood is full of fresh and surprising folk tunes performed by a live band.

More about the show experience
This show will now be presented digitally on-demand.
Plans are in progress to film the show on site at Ada Slaight Hall. It will be available to stream directly on this show page in late January.
Ursa: A Folk Musical was created on—and inspired by—the ancestral homelands of many nations, including the Anishinaabek, Lenape, Attawandaron, Mississaugas of the Credit, Chippewa, Haudenosaunee and Wendat peoples all across what we refer to as "Southern Ontario," where Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit people continue to thrive. The Uncommon Folk Collective is grateful to be able to live, learn, and love on this land, and continue to educate ourselves about the history of Turtle Island; acknowledge our privilege and how it relates to the harmful legacy of colonizers; and work towards true reconciliation through both everyday and long-term actions. If you have the means, please consider donating your time or money to an Indigenous charity, such as 1492 Land Back Lane (link below).
Parental guidance advised
This show is a musical-concert hybrid, where 4 actor/musicians perform 75 minutes of folky tunes. The majority of the show is music, and though much of it will be soft, there are moments where the band plays together and the volume is similar to a full-band folk concert. The musicians will be playing electric and acoustic guitars, drums, piano, and various percussion instruments.
