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.

the Time warp show was good . The only reason that I did not say it was excellent was because there was a little bit to much of the Woodstock part. I had rather see the singers standing and singing as opposed to sitting on a stool

We attended the Christmas special at the opry this year, it was just great. I see the regular show each year, but it was the first time seeing the Christmas show. The show, the singing, the comedy the dancing and all the decorations made it fabulous

Great singing dancing and comedy that is family friendly. There is a faith undertone and a love for country that I love and appreciate. Just a great show all around and we got a second show at a good discount online. Go and enjoy a wonderful evening
