Awesome show with great sound. Really surprised to see this quality of show in South Carolina. It was also great to go to an event that was not crowded.

This highly professional, entertaining show has it all--good singers, talented musicians, funny comics, energenic dancers, terrific production numbers, laser lights.

It ends around 10 PM.... More

Great Christmas show!. The music, costumes, dancers and comedians were fantastic! We show the show after Christmas and it made us feel like it was still Christmas time. So much talent on one stage!

I went with friends to the Christmas show over a girls weekend - and I was disappointed. I had been SEVERAL years prior to this visit and felt that the show (and a couple of the performers) needed a serious update. I'm not a spring chicken, but I feel that this is probably the type of show that would appeal... More

We enjoyed the show. The seating is tight, meaning that you feel like your seating too close to your partners that you did not come with.
