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..

It was much less professional than a Broadway production, but was fun and engaged the audience. And only $35 for decent seats; definitely worth it!!!!

Contemporary country, great clog dancers, and old country. Amazing costumes---Our 3rd visit. The comedy had us all laughing too.

Went here with family for a very special family occassion.
We were fortunate enough to sit nearly up front and really enjoyed the instrumental quality, singing and dancing, along with nearly all of the comedy routine. All the dancers were spectacular.
Somewhat uneven aspect was an attempt to redo the classic Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" sketch using another metaphor. It was cute, but was played out too long. Another involved the musicians and the Cadillac.
A nice touch was the acknowledgment salute to those serving in the military, as well as those who served, though that did not extend to offering any military / disabled veteran ticket discounts, and the nearly seamless bridging into "God Bless America" discounted a number of vets, including the late Pat Tillman, and other atheists, Hindus and others who make up larger and larger percentages of our diverse miltary population, as well as the US population per the Pugh Research Center.
The theater policy of allowing photos, but not videos, is wonderful. I took a number of pictures that will share with family as we remember our visit to Myrtle Beach.

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!

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.
