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.

Folk Music at Pontine Theatre

Folk duo Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards will perform several concerts at the Pontine Theatre between Feb. 7 and 10. See them on Thursday the 7th at 3 p.m, Friday the 8th at 7 p.m., Saturday the 9th at 3 p.m. or Sunday the 10th at 2 p.m. Contact the theatre for ticket information.

Seacoast Skating with the Stars at Labrie Family Skate

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. Elton John was one of the talents adapting this for the stage, so the music is guaranteed to be fabulous. Visit Seacoast Rep online for tickets or check out their box office prior to the show.
