We go to the Carolina Opry every time we go to Myrtle Beach. Love the variety of music, dance and comedy. Gratis way to spend the evening. The seating is very comfortable. You can also shop the gift shop and purchase CD's to listen to at home.

The seats have been recently redone I've been told and they are SUPER comfortable. My butt never fell asleep. The food is sorta overpriced like a movie theatre though. The inside of the building is gorgeous, too and they take a group photo right after you show your tickets (which i loved). The signers were amazingly fantastic. BUT the comedy... More

We went to the Carolina Opry year after year for 24 years but haven't been to Myrtle Beach since retiring to TN several years ago. Went to see Time Warp last night and The Carolina Opry tonight. Although some of the old familiar faces were no longer there there was enough of the old "family" still in the show while... More

Visited The Carolina Opry for Time Warp. The show was fantastic. Some of my favorite music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. All the performers were amazingly talented. This show's got it all, humor, singing and dancing. Venue is great, seats are comfortable and there is plenty of room. Will definitely be going back for another show.

My sister, cousin and I went to the show August 13 2015. We enjoyed it so much that during intermission we ordered tickets for the next night. That show was wonderful also! Special awards go to all but Brad Long and All That Clogging Group make the show. We will be back!!! Debbie Marcia and Cristy

The entertainment was not as exciting as in past years.I have really enjoyed the show in the past with my children and Grandchildren. This year the entertainment seemed off, as if the entertainers were tired of performing. There were some singers and dancers missing, along with the comedy shctick. Please revive the show. I think we will seek another form... More

I was expecting a good show. I got an amazing show. It was worth every penny. The lobby and gift shop were nice, my three year old loved going upstairs and looking at the pictures. The show was impressive. I wasn't expecting the variety of numbers they did. From old time Gospel, to modern country to "Happy" (Despicable Me) and... More

Went here to see an evening music show which covered American music throughout the years and different genres. Some comedy as well. The theatre itself is very big and spacious with comfortable seats. Bit disappointed when we booked our tickets at the Ellington Resort and were told that there wasn't many left, this was a bit of a lie as... More
