Payomet is thrilled to present the joys of Joan Osborne and Bob Dylan at the Tilden Arts Center on Cape Cod this holiday season with a special and electric performance, Joan Osborne's DYLANOLOGY.

On her latest album Songs of Bob Dylan, Joan unleashes her sizable gifts as a vocalist and interpreter upon The Bard’s celebrated canon, as the seven-time Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum-selling singer and songwriter, whom The New York Times has called “a fiercely intelligent, no-nonsense singer,” winds her supple, soulful voice around Dylan’s poetic, evocative lyrics, etching gleaming new facets in them along the way.

Sons of Serendip Christmas Show

The Sons of Serendip are a musical group of four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events, came together in graduate school at Boston University and rocketed to popularity after a 4th place finish on America’s Got Talent. The members are, Micah Christian, a teacher from Randolph, MA and the lead singer for the group; Cordaro Rodriguez, an attorney from Charlotte, NC, is pianist and guitarist; Kendall Ramseur, a performer and cello instructor from Charlotte, NC is cellist and vocals; and Mason Morton, a teacher from Atlanta, GA, is the harpist. All have been playing their instruments since childhood. They hope that their music will resonate deeply with listeners and that, in some way, it will make their lives a little better – even if just for a moment.

The Sea Captain's Nutcracker

The Cape Cod holiday classic, The Sea Captain's Nutcracker, makes its return to the stage with three performances over Thanksgiving weekend! Directed by Laura Sciortino,  Artistic Director of Falmouth’s Turning Pointe Dance Studio. 

The shows are held at the Tilden Arts Center at the Cape Cod Community College on Saturday, November 24 at 2pm and 6pm and Sunday, November 25 at 2pm.  

This lovely production is an excellent way to kick off your holiday season and is perfect for all ages.  The Sea Captain’s Nutcracker, set to the original Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker score, opens in a Chatham Sea Captain’s home in the mid-1800’s.  Local authors Donna Smith & Anne LeClaire’s script transports the audience on an enchanting journey through local history and folklore invoking elements of the natural environs of Cape Cod. The heroic battle scene takes place aboard a sailing ship as it is attacked by mooncussers off the coast of Eastham; a swift and violent storm off Monomoy Point then threatens the voyage.  The salty old Sea Captain, who replaces the traditional Drosselmeyer character, returns home to Chatham bearing exotic gifts from his voyages for Clara.  Audiences will be charmed by the Waltz of the Sea Grass and will be thrilled by the Dance of the Icy Winds.

Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham Headlines the Cape Cod Melody Tent

Record-breaking global Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham, is bringing his cast of characters on the road, as America’s favorite ventriloquist tours North America on his 60-city Passively Aggressive tour through spring 2018. Tickets on sale now at jeffdunham.com.

Dunham recently released his latest stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix in September 2017. The special, filmed in Dublin Ireland, features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters for a gleeful skewering of family and politics. Dunham and his famous cohorts Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut also consider what a new member to their already dysfunctional family could mean, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster. 

Dunham, a Guinness World Record holder for “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour,” has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and innovation. With over a million YouTube subscribers amassing over a billion views, he has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world, leading to record-breaking viewership with his comedy specials on Comedy Central and NBC. His 2015 stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Primetime and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.

And finally, adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments, Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy was recognized when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, commemorating over two decades of superstardom. Said Dunham recently, “When I moved to Los Angeles in 1988 with a car full of clothes and a couple of dummies, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would be tripping over my own star on the Walk of Fame. It’s truly fantastic and a great honor; I just hope it’s not in front of an adult store. Okay, actually, that would be hilarious.”

Nancy has won three New York City MAC Awards for “Outstanding Female Comedian” and a MAC Award for her one woman show “Dignity Check… Please”. Nancy was one of five finalists on Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America” in 2005. Soon after, she joined two other finalists and for five years they toured in sold out theaters across the country in the hit comedy show “Mama’s Night Out”. “The New York Times” has described Nancy as having “a razor sharp wit” and Backstage Magazine named her to their list of “Comedy Best Bets”.
