My partner went to the Carolina Opry Wed night and were excited. The old man who was the usher just ignored us. We tried to find our seat ourselves and and went back to the front and asked for assistance. Apparently they cater to older white people, because I didn't see one person of color in the entire place.

The shows are always first class. The new seats are great, with twice as much room between rows it seems like as before.The seats even rock some.Entry and exit great. I wish the camera guy had been a little better with the pictures.

A good entertainment center by the Dolly Parton company. A bit out of town on route 17 on the way to one of two Tanger Outlet Malls (which are well worth a visit)

This is one of our favorite shows in MB. The singers, musicians, comedians, dancers, & ALL THAT put on a wonderful show every time we have been there. They have their regular show, plus on designated nights, they perform Good Vibrations (60's, 70's, & 80's music), plus laser shows. Their Christmas show is a must see! They have new seats,... More

We attended a concert called Good Vibrations which was 60's, 70's and 80's music. Excellent talent and sets. Enjoyed it very much.

The seats were comfortable. That is the only good thing I can say about this show. The show does not connect with the audience. I do not recommend this show.

We were here for the Christmas show last season and it was really fun. The lobby was stunning with an enormous tree and tastefully decorated for the holidays. We brought an elderly friend who uses a walker and the theater was very accommodating, even providing a booster seat for our friend. It was a Christmas show like nothing we had... More

We went on a short vacation and took in two performances at the Carolina Opry. The venue is beautiful and the use of lighting and special effects give it a Vegas feel. The entertainers both nights were outstanding. The "Good Vibrations" show was listed as music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. It definitely leans toward the later music. However,... More

On our first visit to Myrtle Beach, we decided to attend the theatre attractions, including The Carolina Opry. We were not disappointed! It was a delightful evening of entertainment! The theatre is beautiful, the cast of the show is amazingly talented, the costumes and choreography was exquisite, and the comedy was hilarious. We can't understand why some of these entertainers...
