Description

from The Carolina Opry
If you only see one show, this is the one! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. Year after year The Carolina Opry is voted the Best Show by readers of the Myrtle Beach Sun News, a Knight-Ridder newspaper. And it's the only show that has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, TNN, and USA Today, which called it "A Big Hit.” The New York Post called it "A Hot Ticket.”

Entertainer and entrepreneur Calvin Gilmore launched The Carolina Opry on South Carolina's Grand Strand in 1986. His live music variety show features a cast of 36 of the nation's top singers, dancers, comedians and musicians in its own 2200-seat show palace with state-of-the-art sound and lighting and three giant video screens. The show, which is continually updated with new music and comedy, is two hours of high energy entertainment that blends humor and dancing with everything from rock 'n roll, Broadway and country to classic hits, pop melodies and gospel. Young and old are counted among its fans who are sure to include a performance in their visit to Myrtle Beach.

In November and December the theater is transformed into a winter wonderland where the magic of the season comes alive in The Carolina Opry Christmas Special a wonderfully dazzling, jolly and sentimental musical celebration of America's best-loved holiday.

The singers and dancers were nothing but first class. You could tell they really cared abt. Their performance. The comedians were funny and very entertaining.
Tip: Most seats are good, but we sat very near the front and felt more a part of the show.

We saw TIME WARP (music from 60s, 70s and 80s). The venue was very nice, good crowd, great seats and a local discount. The cast is very talented, everyone will have their favorites, mine would have to be Drew Voivedich on guitar(he just came off tour with Kellie Pickler) great guitar man. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We seen the show twice, both times Paul the attendant was so helpful, friendly and always had a smile. During the show you would see him getting involved with the show he's a great part of the show as well.

The Carolina Opry currently offers 3 different musical shows. I saw the Time Warp show which featured songs fron the 60s, 70s and 80s. The singers and musicians were first class, the show was fast paced and great entertainment. If you are a Boomer, or just love songs from that era, you can't miss this show.

We visited the Carolina Opry show last night and had an unbelievable experience. The show was The Time Warp. It was absolutely AMAZING! The entire cast at the Opry is SO talented it is just a joy to watch. If you are planning a trip to Myrtle Beach and are looking to attend a show one night, you absolutely can't go wrong with TCO. They have a couple of shows on different nights; The Time Warp (60's, 70's, and 80's), Carolina Opry (which is a little bit country) and of course the Christmas Show starting in November, I think. A can't miss evening!
