We saw the Carolina Opry's Christmas show just before Christmas, and it was a great show! They performed all the typical Christmas songs,. which is why one attends a Christmas show, so we enjoyed that a lot. One person did the currently popular "Let It Go" from the Disney move, and they had the animated film of the character playing... More

My husband and I went with one other couple. The show was great. The Christmas decorations in the lobby were phenominal. The show featured a live horse pulling a sleigh, real "snow", and the wonderful clogging/tapping group "All That" which have been on tv and many other places. Very nicely produced. Great variety of songs and costumes. Great Christmas spirit.... More

This was the best Christmas Show ever. We have been to a lot of Christmas Shows at Myrtle Beach over the last 15 years, and I am always excited to see The Carolina Opry show, and this year the show was just awesome.

This show was an excellent, tightly produced production. The cast sang, moved and performed flawlessly through out the show, The multiple exquisite costumes and set changes were impressive. The live musicians and their inter-action, added to the over all experience. A must see for all visiting the Myrtle Beach area during the Christmas Holiday. As for my wife and myself... More

We visited the Carolina Opry during December and they presented their Christmas show. It was a good balance of comedy and song & dance suitable for the entire family. My teen daughter enjoyed it so that says a lot.
