Cape Cod's own Sit-A-While with Kami Lyle as host where National Artists meet Local Talent!

What is a Sit-A-While? A Sit-A-While is an evening of great music and a gathering of friends set in a variety of cozy, Oceanside settings across Cape Cod. Each Sit-A-While showcases Cape Cod's beautiful venues as we move around to different towns. Our guests will perform their favorite songs in a round with custom musical jingles for our sponsors interspersed with stories, skits performed by the Cape’s prominent business owners, and more great music!  We have teamed up with international radio station WMVY to broadcast the shows on their website and with Live From Center Stage to videotape and broadcast locally. 

February 27, the Sit-A-While features Steve Earle and Connor Kennedy.

Moms on Broadway 2016

Due to scheduling conflicts this show has been cancelled. We look forward to hosting the moms in 2017!

Back by popular demand for the third year in a row,  “Moms on Broadway” is the perfect way to celebrate the joys and frustrations of motherhood through song and dance. This year the Moms will perform the show twice – on Friday, May 6 then again on Mother’s day. The repertoire is chosen so the Moms can be funny, bawdy, sarcastic, sexy, crazy, 'out there', etc. The audience can expect more dancing and choreography and definitely more comedy and fun!  You’ll have a really great time and will come away feeling uplifted, happy and like you’ve been royally entertained!
