music circus

The South Shore Music Circus continues to support the mission and programs of The South Shore Community Center.

For over 60 years, the South Shore Music Circus and its 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 theaters 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, recreation 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, one interwoven with the fabric of summer theatre history on the east coast, our theaters 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.
