Christmas show is a must-see! However, the last number "He Is Alive!" is getting stale and is more appropriate for the Easter season...definitely not Christmas!

In the past two weeks I have seen both the Alabama Theater's Christmas Show and the Carolina Opry's Christmas Show. I'm a 65 year old white male retiree from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pa. I now live in the Litchfield/Pawleys Island area of SC. In my opinion the Alabama show is far superior. The Opry as the name suggests has... More

The music was ok. Just not as good as my past visits. The comedy was bordering on offensive.( homophobic,sexist and racist. I and not sure I will return.

We decided to see this show based on all the positive reviews. Yes the show is interesting but I have seen better traveling Christmas shows at our local venues. The singers were pretty good but I felt they could have used some contemporary songs in the show. The show is rather long and a couple of times I felt myself... More

We saw this show the first week of November: three weeks before Thanksgiving and 7 weeks before Xmas. Why the theater decides to do their Xmas show so far in advance of the holiday is ridiculous. Yes, the singers mostly had above average voices. Yes, the stage and theater were nicely decorated for the holidays. However, we would have preferred... More

We live near Branson, so we know a good show when we see one. This was among the best. It's a bit pricy, but you will enjoy your evening!

Love the show at this theater! The Christmas show was wonderful! It had everything, comedy, singing, dancing. In fact, the comedy was so good, we couldn't stop laughing. If you go to Myrtle Beach, S.C. during the Christmas season, go to this show. You won't be sorry!

Although the performers and musicianship was quite good, we left at intermission. In the first set, they did just 2 actual Christmas Carols out of about 12 songs. The rest of the show was the tired, old, played out seasonal songs that I have been sick of for decades. My preference, not everyone's. Maybe the second set was more Christmas... More

Whether you go as a couple, with friends or as a family you will be sure to be entertained. We went to the Christmas show today and we had a blast. The entertainment was top notch, funny, beautifully staged and highly entertaining. We will be back for sure!
