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..

I'm a big fan of Rocky Fritz. From the original cast, we sure miss him. It's great to at least have him back for Christmas. "All That" shows their versatility in that that can do more than clog! Loved the "Grinch" number. The entire cast seems more pulled together this year than last year, which was their 1st Christmas after some well loved cast members were let go.

We travel annually to see the "Carolina Opry Xmas show", which is excellent.
We had tickets for the matinee on Friday, then on Saturday the annual "Dickens Festival @ the Convention Ctr was held. Wonderful four days.

Show was nice, but the comfort of seats left a lot to be desired. The seats were so uncomfortable that we left at intermission.

I took a group to the matinee of the Carolina Opry Christmas Show in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, November 10, 2012. Jack and Sandy Cheape greeted our bus and made everyone feel so very welcome. The show was very entertaining and high energy. The ending song, He's Alive, was one of the highlights of the show. The lobby as well as the theatre were very well decorated for the Christmas season. Nathan, the emcee, came out to the bus at the end of the show and thanked the entire group for being there. The bluegrass numbers that were sang such as Children Go Where I Sent Thee were very well done. I would certainly recommend this show to people visiting Myrtle Beach. It will be a nice addition to your vacation.

We just saw this show Nov. 7th and loved it. Most of the songs were traditional Christmas carols. The comedy skits were actually funny. The costumes were fabulous.
