This show is suitable for the whole family. The numbers are well chosen for an overall musical variety.

We saw this show in August 2014. It featured songs from the 50's to the 80's. The production was done very well. The performers were very talented. The seating was excellent. When in Myrtle Beach S.C. I would recommend this show. FYI, it is a long drive from most hotels out north on Kings Highway.

A little bit for everyone in the family. The dancers were our favorite! They performed old and new music. Some of the female artists had truly amazing voices. We caught a Saturday evening performance on the day we arrived in Myrtle Beach. The chairs were very comfortable after a long day of travel, and was a great way to kick... More

This made for a good evening of entertainment. We especially loved the comedian and some of the tributes to past legendary singing artists.

We haven't been in five years, and it was really good. We brought friends for their first time and they loved it too. I especially enjoyed the country music medley of the oldies. It was so good to hear those old songs again.

We went to the Good Vibrations show. It was a lot of fun. They covered a lot of musical ground. It's a fun night out and a good value.

Don't let the word "Opry" fool you into thinking this is a country music show. *TCO* is an award winning Broadway class musical variety show including all types of music and some comedy -performed by the very best, most multi-talented, super professional performers with a live orchestra. It is fast moving, enjoyable, entertaining at it's best! The world famous award... More

My wife and 3 teenage granddaughters attended an evening performance of the Carolina Opry. We were expecting typical country/western music but were pleasantly surprised to hear and see a variety of music styles done. The cloggers are probably the best we have seen anywhere and the show takes advantage by having them on several times. All in all, with discounts... More
