Our friends Sam and Jake wrote a folk musical throughout the pandemic, and this will be one of their first performances with a live audience! We are incredibly inspired by the art they created, and by the ways they are challenging what "folk" and "theatre" can mean.
We're thrilled to be opening up the evening show in Bancroft on Saturday, September 24th.
About "Ursa: A Folk Musical":
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.
