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.

“Enjoyed the show!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This was the third time we went to The Carolina Opry. The show was very good, with some amazing new singers and of course "All That" the awesome clogging group which is my personal favorite. I did notice some songs and jokes were repeats from last year's show, but there was plenty of new material as well. After having read some reviews noting they felt the political jokes were a little too much, I was very pleased to find they were not included in the show. There's a good mix of music, although there was quite a bit of Country and some other songs I did not recognize. For some reason, I enjoyed the shows I attended the past two years more than this one, but that's just me. It's well worth the price of the ticket.

“Entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We have in the past attended The Carolina Opry several times. This show was always outstanding, and the talent like no other. The music and singers were so enjoyable, and the talent of "All That" made us enjoy the variety of this event. We loved the music, especially the gospel music, so professional. A great way to end a day at Myrtle Beach!

We plan on attending our next trip.

“Carolina Opry Rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

What a beautiful theatre! Comfortable seating, great sight lines and good acoustics. The variety show does not disappoint. There is a variety of entertainment including Country, Gospel, Rock and Broadway music along with a group of Dancers and Comedy as well. Some of the talented musicians play multi instruments and join in the singing as well. All this is complimented by video screens and a laser light show. I can see why the Opry has won major S.C. tourist awards and voted the best show in Myrtle Beach. OPRY ROCKS!

“Always professional and exuberant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Every trip I make to Myrtle Beach has to include Carolina Opry. With a wide selection of popular music, it should appeal to a variety of attendees. Dancers are terrific and there are always a couple singers that leave you limp.
