Life on a Plate: The Story of a Pea
August 6, 2022

So often in this world we hear stories of greatness, stories of triumph. This is one of those stories… It’s a small story, almost unnoticeable. Life on a Plate is the heroic tale of an underdog, or in this case “the last pea on the plate,” passed over time and time again. Join Pea, Carrot, and all the other inhabitants of the fridge on an eggs-i-stential journey to food paradise.

Upside Arts Day Camp (open to ages 7-17) provides a unique summer experience with original musicals written for the campers! Students work together to build confidence, creativity, and develop skills needed to perform on stage, while rehearsing for a fully staged production. Performances are August 6 at 10am and 12:30pm at New Hampshire Theatre Project (959 Islington St. #3, Portsmouth, NH 03801). Tickets are $10 and can be reserved below.
