Attraction details
Owner description: For nearly 60 years, the South Shore Music Circus and it’s sister venue, the Cape Cod Melody Tent, have been presenting world-class entertainment in the scenic Massachusetts coastal communities of Cohasset and Hyannis. The only two continuously-operated tent theatres in the round in the United States, the Music Circus and Melody Tent are owned and operated by the South Shore Playhouse Associates, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and supporting the arts, cultural and educational organizations throughout the communities of the South Shore and Cape Cod. With a colorful history dating back to its humble beginning in 1932 in Cohasset, Massachusetts, one interwoven with the fabric of summer theatre history on the east coast, our theatres have emerged as popular destinations for patrons and performers alike, providing a relaxed ambiance and intimate theatre experience where every seat is within 50 feet of the stage.

Are we lucky or what! Right in our own backyard some of the best live entertainment, up close and personal. Go early, buy a glass of wine and then enjoy the talent brought to our own backyard. Plenty of parking but a pain to get out of…if it was organized better this venue would get 5 stars from me..also, raise some of the tent sides during the hottest nights to allow for more breeze. Then we would have a "perfect summer evening out!"

Went here for Trace Adkins. My opinion of this place is it would be great for a mellow quiet concert but not good with a band you want to get up and move to as most everyone sits for the most of the show and it's frowned upon if you stand even for a short while. The staff and grounds are fine just come of acts may be better going to a different venue for crowd enjoyment.

Just attended a show at the SSMC. First time there and found it a very good place for a concert. Not a bad seat in the house, plenty of leg room, good sight lines, sound was very good and there were enough restrooms and food/drink kiosks for the size crowd they can accommodate. Living north of Boston, we don't often venture to the South Shore but it was less than an hour from home - a similar distance as the Hampton Beach Casino. Would definitely consider attending other events there!

Oh, and the Happy Together Tour was a great stroll down memory lane!!

Just saw Straight No Chaser and the concert was fantastic. LOVE the intimate setting and the "guys" kept joking about the stage going around, but they were clearly into it as well. The best line of the night was when one of the singers said "... we know with this revolving stage only some of you get the BEST view...the rest of you have to look at our faces" : )

I Saw Frankie Valli last night and was thrilled with his performance. Hearing him in his youth and seeing him at age 80 made me realize had wonderful he still is.His back up singers were one of the best group i have seen.
Frankie , in a low keyed manner, just kept going.!!!!!!
I am not a person who goes to many concerts but THIS ONE was sensational
FRANKIE KEEP ON GOING...
