5 Things to Know in Portsmouth This Week (2/4/19)

Portsmouth has seen the bitter cold of winter and the beautiful warmth of a teased spring—all in a matter of days. Just because that groundhog didn’t see his shadow, however, doesn’t mean there’s not more winter to come. It’s New England, after all. The following activities will warm the soul, even if the hands and feet are still bearing the chill.

Billy Elliot at Seacoast Rep

Take in a performance of “Billy Elliot” at Seacoast Rep. The musical opens on Friday, Feb. 8, and runs through March 9.
