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..

“Good show, but not for everyone...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

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 to the senior community --- and my friends agreed. Good talent (singing), traditional music, pretty staging and costumes, stale jokes and the show was too long. Nice evening out, but I probably won't go again.

“Nice Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

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.
