Larger Than Life

July 22, 2023

The tall tales of Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Captain Stormalong, and more come to life- larger than life- in this celebration of Americana folklore! Journey across the Atlantic Ocean, the forests of New England, and the uncharted plains of the wild, wild West with these legendary heroes. You’ll find that no matter how tall or small, a hero is only as big as his heart.

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 July 22 at 10am and 1pm at New Hampshire Theatre Project (959 Islington St. #3, Portsmouth, NH 03801). Tickets are $15 General Admission and $12 Students, and can be purchased below.
