URSULA – FAIRYTALE PLAY ABOUT A PRINCESS WHO BECOMES A BEAR

Ursula is seventeen and is a prisoner, trapped inside her own castle by her father, the King. Although he does it because he wishes to protect her, Ursula wants to see the sun and explore the world, no matter how dangerous it might be. Her nurse, who is also a witch, by the way, gives her a magic cloak that, when she wears it, transports her out of the castle. But it also transforms her into a big brown bear. She almost gets shot by a Handsome prince hunting in the forest, but luckily she she can still talk, she astonishes him with her powers of speech and he takes her home to become a servant in his house. There, disguised as a bear, she gets to know him and also falls in love with him. When there is a ball, she removes her bear cloak and dances with him as a beautiful stranger.

But little does he know that his own bear and the beauty are one and the same…
