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..

Really professional show in a beautiful theatre. Lots of variety in music styles, comedy, tap dancers (phenomenal) and singers. All really talented and enjoyable. Well worth the price of the ticket!

“Fun evening”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

At first I thought it was going to be all country (I am not a big country music fan) but it was diverse and fun. Enjoyed and would recommend. The costumes were amazing and really well done.

“Broadway quality”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you like variety shows, you should consider spending one evening at the Carolina Opry. You will be entertained by comedy, dancing and singing. Mostly county and rock-n-roll. Very talented performers. Two acts one hour each with an intermission. The theater is small; most seats have good viewed. We splurged for an orchestra seats for $48 each. Food offerings were limited, popcorn and candy. No alcohol.

“Disappointed..From Ohio”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

My husband and I have seen the Carolina Opry several times but have not been there for about 3 years. We did go this year (October 2012) and have to say we were really disappointed. In previous years we were so impressed with the Master of Ceremonies (apparently he has retired) - the new gentleman was ok but didn't compare to the former MC. The singers and performers were really good but we remember the "Horse Act" and were very disappointed that it has been omitted...for us that was the ultimate act.
The stage was so dark and did not change through the night. It was mentioned that millions of dollars was spent on the laser show - in our opinion that money should have been put into the performances.
I apologize for such a negative review but that is our opinion - we sincerely hope that you will make some changes. As for the price of the tickets, yes they are pricey but we didn't mind paying that much when we truly enjoyed the show.. Next year we will probably visit one of the other shows in Myrtle Beach..

“Another great show at the Opry”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We visited MB last year and saw The Carolina Opry for the first time. I was concerned if we went again this year, we would hear the same songs, but I decided to take a chance. Some of the music was the same, but most of the show was changed. The performers were very talented and the costumes were beautiful. The comedy part of the show was excellent as well! The seating is the only thing I am not 100% happy with. While I realize they want to get as many people in the theater as possible for each show, you sit so close to the person next to you, there is barely any arm room.
