Concerts

The Center is host to as many concerts each year as the campus’ schedule allows.  Local, regional and international artists perform on the Center’s main stage, art gallery and art studio.  The Center is also a proud host to the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival and the Provincetown Jazz Festival.

We are thrilled to announce this Summer's Broadway at Cotuit Series, presented by Mark Cortale. Three superstars, Chita Rivera, Megan Hilty (both accompanied by the hilarious Seth Rudestsky), and Sutton Foster, Broadway royalty, will perform at our intimate theater. You can’t see stars of this caliber for these prices on Broadway as up close and personal as you’ll see them here – and you don’t have to pay to park or stay in a hotel. In addition to the opportunity to soak in this talent at our intimate venue, you can also purchase Meet & Greet tickets, and get even closer!
