Ursus H. Bear

About Ursus H. Bear
Atop the stage, surrounded by gilded flourishes and angel bears, is a Victorian style portrait of our shows’ founder Ursus H. Bear. This is a little joke for the adults who get it- Ursus is latin for bear! From the dates on his portrait, we know Ursus lived from 1848-1928 and opened Grizzly Hall at the age of 50. Although we never meet Ursus, his image incites our imaginations for each guest to decide who the real Ursus was.
