Some of the original staff are still there with a new younger group that the old and young both will love. The incredible tap dancing guys, "All That" are still going strong and many appearances on national TV. Calvin Gilmore has refurbished the theater with new wider more comfortable seats. GREAT SHOW. You will fill lifted in spirit after you... More

The best live variety show that we have seen in a long time. An incredible mixture of music, comedy and dance. Songs for every age group with country, rock and current hits. This is a must see when visiting Myrtle Beach. Spend the extra for a comfy seat up close.

The seats in this theatre were so comfy. That made the show even more enjoyable. Lots of leg room . The show had a lot of talented people. Singers were not load enough at times because the background music would drown their voices out. Comedian was excellent.

Oh my Gosh, it was so good seeing Bibis Ellison as an addition to the cast of The Carolina Opry. She went to Socastee High School with my Niece and they were in Chorus together under the Direction of Norman McQueen. We have seen her perform with her band on several occasions, but I think she has truly found her... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this show. The musicians AND the vocalists were top notch. The comedy very family friendly. Even our teen boys who grumped and groaned on our way to the show, enjoyed the evening.

Bibis is GREAT. I've seen the show a few times now and I really love the new additions to the cast. Bibis really takes the show to another level.
