Went to see Good Vibration's, musical variety show on a Monday night. It opened with The Beatles songs, then went through the 60's, 70's and 80's music. Some wonderful singers and dancers. Also had some comedy and river dancers. Had some laser light shows intermittently. Very entertaining. We sat in 5th row and tickets were $50 each. Bottom section was... More

By pure chance, I was perusing through all the brochures in the lobby of my hotel on things to do in Myrtle Beach and came across this laser light show. When my husband called to inquire about the show, he learned that each night of the week has a different music band and the particular night we wanted to go... More

We attended the Carolina Opry show for the first time in several years and some members of the cast have changed, but it is still the best show at the beach. There is lots of country music but there is something for everyone from bluegrass to 50's, 60's & 70's. The comedy routines are hilarious. I would also highly recommed... More

During the opening acts I was getting nervous about purchasing tickets for this Opry. I was scared they haven't changed their show in the 25 years they have been opened. Once the show started they had a good variety of newer music, old music, dancing, and even some comedy thrown in. I only give it an average rating because I... More

We live in Myrtle Beach and get to all the big shows every year. Every year The Carolina Opry excels. The talent is the best, anywhere. The show is packed and dare I say - well priced for the quality of the entertainment. There is something for everyone without diluting any of the segments.

We have visited the Carolina Opry several times and the shows have always been outstanding. The music is great and the entertainers seem to really enjoy what they are doing. The theater is very attractive and we always have a good time there. The emcee

My wife and I are born in the early fifties. So music of the sixties,seventies, and eighties sounded appealing . The venue was half full on a Friday night, so we were a little concerned about the quality of the show. The Opry building was beautiful, and the acoustics in the hall were excellent In a word it was incredible.... More

We attended the Christmas Show with Friends in Late Nov 2011 and the show was absolutely fantastic. Everything from Scenery, Music and vocals were top notch. The Show lasted almost 3 hours and was well worth the cost of the tickets. We will attend again the next time we come to the Beach, Highly Recommended.

We expected a southern country music show but this is a variety show and was very good value and entertaining.
