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!

This is a wonderful venue for music and shows! Not a bad seat in the house...only 22 rows so it feels up close and personal. Worth the drive from New Jersey! Reasonably priced!

Great talent and all seats are good. The stage turns so everyone gets to see the performers at all angles. The staff is organized and helpful. Drinks are available outside the tent. The big problem comes when the loud performers are there. It is so...More

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!

CCMT value differs year by year. Thankfully the focus on faux country acts has relaxed this year. A great, small venue hosting R & R hall of fame acts like Heart, Bonnie Raitt, ZZ top this year. Volunteer workers are fine and helpful. Beer is...More

We'd like to see Bill Maher in August. I realize it's rather late to expect great seats, but the "best available" are in section H. Since the stage will not be moving, which section(s) would be best to see/hear Bill?
