The Carolina Opry was an action-packed two hour performance that included singing, dancing, comedy, instrumentals, and the "All That" cloggers. I loved how every performance blended parts of the many talents featured at this venue. It wasn't just one performer on stage, there were several talents showcased during each number that would keep every member of your group entertained. It... More

went to the TCO tonight after seeing "good vibrations" a few days ago. We were not disappointed. First rate show with a variety of music for almost 2 1/2 hours. The performers were none stop, with intermittent comedy skits throughout the show. This was my wife's favorite show in MB.

This show was fabulous. I was so amazed at the talent, the professionalism and the music. I was singing and dancing in my seat the whole time. The vocals were amazing. Soooo much talent. And the cloggers were unbelievable. I would love to see a whole show of just them. Don't miss this if you are in Myrtle Beach.

We have been to the Carolina Opry Christmas Show many times. The performers are top notch and this is a very family oriented show.

The talent is fantastic!! Worth every penny! Went to "Good Vibrations" and we sang along to every song. The comedian had us laughing so hard it hurt! And I can never get enough of "All That!" Wow!!! Highly recommend this show to all generations!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the TCO. We are 60+ Caucasian retirees (your targeted demographic?) The variety of acts and musical genres were excellent, the performers were good-excellent, the comedic sketches were funny but uneven and sometimes awkward. Of course, "All That" added an energy and talent that was undeniable. However, the show was frustrating for three reasons: first,... More

Saw the Opry Show and was a nice time. Good music and performers. Lots of costumes and very good pace. Time flew by very quickly. Venue is beautiful and the sound quality for a live show is very good. Nice way to spend the evening and was not to steep in price for a live performance.

This revue is on a par with Vegas of NYC and is no longer a cheap coverall-dressed hillbilly joke, except for one small interlude that was out of character but to be expected of a small town in the deep south. Diversity was not evidence but religion dripped off the most skits: no surprise in the deep south. We probably... More

If we had seen The Carolina Opry first, maybe we would have given it a better review, but we were spoiled by the outstanding show at the Alabama Theatre the night before. The Carolina Opry is a beautiful building and the entertainers were excellent. However, the music was WAY too loud (too much bass) and often drowned out the singing.... More
