“Go Fish!” in the Community Theater at CHS on February 20 & 21

We have discussed in past CSD Spotlight articles the many ways in which music and performance are beneficial to students—and it bears repeating that, in addition to encouraging creativity and relieving stress in students, music helps develop children’s language skills, listening skills, self-esteem, sense of camaraderie and collaboration, and much more. Colchester School District is very proud of its talented student musicians.

And now, students at Porters Point School are preparing for their upcoming performance of Go Fish! by John Jacobson and John Higgins—a mini-musical celebrating how our individual differences make us special and how it takes all kinds of people to make a world filled with harmony.

Please join us on Wednesday, February 20 and/or Thursday, February 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the community theater at Colchester High School to enjoy the free performances! The two performances will be quite different from one another because each will consist of different performers; half of Porters Point School performs in the Wednesday event, and the other half performs in the Thursday event. In this way, a far greater number of students will have the opportunity to participate in leading roles—and there are even parts that are ideal for some of our more bashful students!

For more information, please call PPS at (802) 264-5920, or e-mail music educator Martie Mutz ( You can also check out the Music at Porters Point School blog to learn more about the performance and about our young students’ study of music.
