Affiliated with the South Shore Music Circus, these are 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. The seating capacity is approximately 2,250.
