As winter very slowly makes its way out of New England, the number of fun things to do in Portsmouth and throughout the Seacoast area increases. At least it sure feels that way. Which of these cool activities taking place in our historic city and throughout the region will you be taking advantage of in March and April?
Seacoast Repertory Theatre
Spring may be on its way, but you most likely would prefer to continue to enjoy indoor events for a little bit longer, so why not check out a production at our own professional theatre? "In the Heights" is the next mainstage production here, and you have 24 opportunities to enjoy it from March 23-April 22. While there, you'll be entertained by a story about the Washington Heights neighborhood in Manhattan set to a "Tony-Award winning blend of hip-hop, traditional Broadway and Latin music." Tickets cost from $20 to $38.
The Music Hall
Another indoor option is The Music Hall, which is a cool venue simply because of its history: it's the oldest Victorian theater in New Hampshire. Even Mark Twain is amongst the artists to have graced this stage, which dates to 1878. One of the most anticipated upcoming productions here is the comic opera "Così Fan Tutte," which will be performed on March 31. However, that's not the only show to take place at the venue as a wide variety of ones are scheduled here over the coming weeks.
Out of Hibernation 5K
By the middle of April, you will most likely be quite stir crazy from the long winter that we just had, so what better way to burn off that excess energy than by taking part in the Out of Hibernation 5K? This annual race is scheduled for 9 a.m. on April 14 and is centered around the Portsmouth Masonic Temple. Registration costs $20.
New Hampshire Wildcats
Perhaps you prefer to enjoy your sports events as a spectator, not a participant. If so, you're in luck too. Although the college basketball and hockey seasons are wrapping up, the spring sports are just starting up for the New Hampshire Wildcats. Some of the competitions taking place in Durham include women's lacrosse matches on March 13 and April 4, 7 and 21 and track and field meets on April 7 and 14.
Great Trivia Knock-Out
How about exercising your mind? The 3rd Annual Great Trivia Knock-Out is scheduled for 6 p.m. on March 9 and will be held at Redhook Brewery. The $100 entry fee includes open beer and wine bar and food from Nibblesworth while proceeds will support the Prescott Park Arts Festival. Auctions and raffles will also take place at this event.
Winter Farmers' Markets
Farmers' Markets are not only for the warmer times of the year as ones have been taking place throughout the winter too. The final two are scheduled for March 24 at Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford and on April 7 at Exeter High School. Hours will be from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
