My husband and I attended TCO last night for the first time. We had a great time. Awesome show, fantastic entertainers, beautiful theatre. Singing, dancing, comedy-fun for everyone. Saw lots of families with children enjoying the show also. Great time!👍🏻

I took my family to TCO on 7/2/15 and was caught COMPLETELY off guard just three songs in. If suggestive dancing and singing is considered "family friendly", then I will NOT be bringing my family back to a Calvin Gilmore produced show. I was completely uncomfortable having my 9-yr old (son) and 12-yr old (daughter) seeing this. Calvin Gilmore has... More

First of all, let me say the Carolina Opry Shows are my favorite in Myrtle Beach. I'm from out of state and I attend these shows about 4 times a year. Just wish they would play more 50's music. Was disappointed the Christmas Show was so scaled down. The male cloggers should dance more, and Kristy should sing "I will... More

Heard this was the show to go to if you only had to see one show. Went with family and it was great. It's about a two hour show with a variety of music.

My husband and I attended the Carolina Opry on our visit to Myrtle Beach. We arrived for the evening show at sunset, which gives an impressive view of the exterior. The latest lobby / foyer area is large and impressive with a staicase as the focal point. There is a small gift shop in the lobby area that sells unusual... More

This is a wonderful, beautifully kept theatre that continues to produce Broadway style variety shows that you will want to see year after year. Well worth the money!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening at The Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach. There was a mixture of comedy and a great variety of entertainment and entertainers. Every singer had an excellent voice, and a number of them were superb. I would recommend this show to anyone.

Decent show, taking you through some of biggest hits of the 60's - 80's. Talented band and decent singing dancing. Nice getaway from all of the beach activivities, beautiful theater. They serve wine/beer also. We arrived early, not knowing how big of crowds to expect. Theater was about 2/3rds full, and everyone seemed to enjoy the show. They give a... More
