The show was just ok. We enjoyed the guitar player and purple rain But not worth the 50:00 cost. I though all of the entertainers looked bored and tired

Last night I visited the Carolina Opry House for the first time since I've been coming to Myrtle Beach for the last 20+ years. I expected Hee Haw, what I got was a first class show!

The show started out a little slow for me, and the female vocalist was difficult to hear at times. The show got better and better as it went on. The cloggers are fabulous!

My husband and I went to dinner then the Opry. It by far exceeded my expectations. The music was amazing and the entertainers were top notch. It was a great show fit for a couples night out or a family night. You should not miss this show!

Have been going to the Carolina Opry for many years. They have several shows throughout the year and all are fantastic. The singers are wonderful and the comedian is absolutely hilarious. If you like music and dancing......don't miss this place.
