One of the oldest continuously-operating tent theaters-in-the-round in the US, along with our sister venue the South Shore Music Circus in Cohasset. A 2,300-seat summer, open-air theatre that hosts national artists and comedians on a revolving stage. No seat is more than 50 feet from the stage!

The melody tent is one of my favourite summer venues for concerts. There are no bad seats, and you are always close to the performers on the rotating stage under the tent. This year we saw Bonnie Raitt and ZZ top - both superb!
