The Tortoise and the Hare

July 9, 2022

We all know the story and the great debate it stirs: does slow and steady win the race? A singular race... perhaps not. But what about the "big race"?  Join Hare and Tortoise on a life encapsulating adventure about the choices we make and the places those choices take us. Who will win the race called Life?

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 9 at 10am and 12pm at New Hampshire Theatre Project (959 Islington St. #3, Portsmouth, NH 03801). Tickets are $10 and can be reserved below.
