Recommend this show to everyone. The comedian was hilarious and the songs and dance were great. The skits were good and the atmosphere was wonderful. They made you feel like you were part of the show.

We attended the Carolina Opry show and had an outstanding time. It was a little over two hours long and we were entertained the whole time. There isn't a bad seat in the theater. The seating was very comfortable.

This variety show has many talented people. The cloggers are amazing as is the lady who sings Whitney Houston's "I will always love you". They just did a major renovation of their stage lights and also offers a light show (but I did not see).

The theater is nice and the variety of different headliners they have is really great. A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours at the beach.

Both sets of seats are on opposite ends of row 1. So you will have a side ways view of the stage. I have never preferred front row unless it is a concert where you can stand, sing and gyrate. Not so in this theater. Seats... More
