“Great Venue for shows !”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We have been going to see shows at the Melody Tent for years and it is a quaint and unique experience for all. The round tent allows everyone to have a great view and enjoy the show. There are many Restaurants close by to enjoy before the show. Fun summer thing on Cape Cod to do and a must do for visitors coming to the area. Great variety of shows every year and you won't be disappointed.

“A great selection of performers at our local venue”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This tent was designed so every seat gets great sound. So much better than being in a big auditorium style music venue.

“Not what it used to be...”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

prices are high, security is lax for the general public (had my pocket picked @ one event)...bathrooms arent the cleanest...staff is generally too old and too scared to handle drunks & seat stealers...sound is cranked up far to loud even for an open air venue...its definitely changed once coporate ownership took over...I wont even go to the chowder festival there anymore

DirMktg, Public Relations Manager at Cape Cod Melody Tent, responded to this review, January 23, 2013
We appreciate your feedback on the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the security levels. The Melody Tent is always looking for ways to make patrons feel more comfortable and safe. The Cape Cod Melody Tent is a Non for profit theatre that is run by the South Shore Playhouse Associates. Sound volume does vary from artist to artist due to the fact that each artist brings in their own sound crew. The town of Hyannis also has a volume limit which is enforced. We hope to see you at the Tent in the future.

Quaint little place with some great performances. There is not a bad seat in the house! Atmosphere is intimate. Intermission offers restroom availability and refreshments. Parking is free and readily available.
