If you only see one show... this is the one! "Top Attraction in Myrtle Beach" according to CNBC! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. 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..

We purchased tickets for the show Time Warp. It was not at all up to what we have seen there before. In the beginning it was so loud you couldn't understand the words. Second half a little better but not at all the music we expected.

This was my first time to the Opry. I took my granddaughters (ages 10 and 13) to the Christmas show. We had a great time. The decorations, music, and performers were outstanding. The theme was country and solid, family, country entertainment was delivered. The show seemed fresh, even though we were near the end of its run.

My friend and I visited in November and decided to go see a show. This was the BEST!! We were very impressed in the variety that we received. A little of traditional, comedy, southern country style, trisiberian orchestra style, and great dancers. I would recommend this show to all (young and old)! It really put us both in the spirit...

The shows are great and the customer service was excellent. We had a great time and enjoy the music and all. We did our reservations ahead a couple of days so we got the seats we wanted.

Wow! It was sensational. The performers were superb. I'll do it again next year - it was that good. It was comparable to Branson, Mo. The price was right and the theater was beautiful. Parking was not a problem.

I first visited the Carolina Opry Christmas Special in the 6th grade with my school. Fast forward to 9 years later and the Christmas Special stills hosts that same Christmas magic from the grand decorations to the joyful singing the Opry ushers visitors into the Christmas spirit and traditions of Christmas. I urge all people to attend this grand holiday... More

After many annual trips to Myrtle Beach and hearing many great things about the Carolina Opry we made a special trip to the beach with the Christmas Show a major objective. We were not disappointed. This show was fantastic. We highly recommend this show to anyone who enjoys a musical stage show and both traditional and non traditional Christmas music.

My family and I saw the show on the 28th of December, so maybe the cast was over the holiday experience. The performances were dry and the actors were just following the routine. I was dismayed that it was just like they were robots and their were times when I thought they were not even really singing, but lip-syncing. I... More
