I have visited TCO several times and am more impressed with each show. It seems that their talent and production get better each time. The singers are as talented as most recording artists out there. With the added comedy of Bogie and Eric and the male (ALL THAT) and female dancers, this is a great all around show. I could... More

Went to see the "Good Vibrations" show at the Carolina Opry and was most impressed at the professionalism and energy put into this show. The singing was excellent, as was the performance of same. The cloggers were spot on and the cloggers from the audience were an added bonus. There was minimal comedy, but very enjoyable. The downside was the... More

Excellent mix of music and comedy. The performers were very professional. A little overdone on the Gospel stuff but all in all good value

If you like country music, you have to go. Wonderful! You will be glad you did! The comedy was great also. The staff couldn't be better. Great atmosphere. Good for families. A must when visiting Myrtle Beach!

My husband and I went to see the show and loved it. It was upbeat and kept the audience engaged. There was an intermission where you were allowed to stretch and the show started on time. They did a dedication to the armed forces which was fitting since it was over the 4th of July weekend. The entertainment was really... More

My wife and I went with my brother and his wife and had a great time! I've seen a post or two about inappropriate political humor but these folks are thin-skinned. Every President gets made fun of; Democrats and Republicans alike. The show made fun of President Obama, the Speaker of the House, and the Senate Majority Leader (both Democrats... More

They have a lineup for music each week, so you have to call, and they will tell you what the music is playing that... More

I was a little surprised at the content of the show. To me the name "Opry" implies country music. There was a little country but the music was more rock. Having said that, the show is great. Most of the talent is local and they are very talented. We had such a good time that we bought tickets to the... More

I had seen the 'Good Vibrations' show which is in the same theatre and the same performers and both shows rock. One of the female singers, Christie, did a wonderful cover of 'I will always love you' and I thought that was worth the admission on it's own. One thing you need to be aware of is that if you...
