Owner description: If you only see one show... this is the one! "Top Attraction in Myrtle Beach" according to CNBC! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. And it's the only show that has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, TNN, and USA Today, which called it "A Big Hit". The New York Post called it "A Hot Ticket".Entertainer and entrepreneur Calvin Gilmore launched The Carolina Opry on South Carolina's Grand Strand in 1986. His live music variety show features a cast of 36 of the nation's top singers, dancers, comedians and musicians in its own 2200-seat show palace with state-of-the-art sound and lighting and three giant video screens. The show, which is continually updated with new music and comedy, is two hours of high energy entertainment that blends humor and dancing with everything from rock 'n roll, Broadway and country to classic hits, pop melodies and gospel.Young and old are counted among its fans who are sure to include a performance in their visit to Myrtle Beach.In November and December the theater is transformed into a winter wonderland where the magic of the season comes alive in The Carolina Opry Christmas Special a wonderfully dazzling, jolly and sentimental musical celebration of America's best-loved holiday.

“Fun, family friendly entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Our family used three free tickets provided by our hotel to attend the Wednesday, 10/24 evening show. We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of music, entertainment, costumes, staging and special effects. The comedy acts are funny “down home” and clean. Two, older, female singers voices were not as pleasant to listen to as Christie Templeton or, Nathan. Nathan’s voice is amazing as his ability to sing different styles of music His Phantom of the Opera performance was enchanting. In short, a nice variety of music, something for almost everyone. Grounds were lovely, a friendly evening of entertainment.

Really enjoyed the show. Music and sound was awesome and the comedy mixed in was very funny. You could see this show every year and enjoy it just as much. Very talented people

“Good time @ Good Vibrations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

My 15 year old daughter an I went to the Carolina Opry with the Berry Financial group. Wow were we blown away with this multi-talented group of performers. Dancing, singing, and some funny comedy as well. All the performers were just right on with their singing and the musicians were flawless! Our special treat too was to see All That the dance group that have done well on America's Got Talent...as usual they were just a joy to watch. My teenager did not know many of the songs but did enjoy "the talent" that was there. Of course I was excited just to be able to go there with her with and see this performance. If you are in Myrtle Beach it is well worth the money to see!
