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 a great show, the entire family loved it. We need to make it a yearly tradition. Super talented performers and really captured the meaning of Christmas.

“Loved this show for 28 years”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Always go to the Christmas show. That is the start of our Christmas seasons and gets us in the spirit. Wonderful how they keep Jesus as such a big part of the Christmas show! Thanks ! We see the regular show and Good Vibrations at least annually but the Christmas Show is the BEST !

“Carolina Orpy Christmas Special”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We are a family of 6 vacationing in Myrtle Beach over Thanksgiving weekend. We had 3rd row seats on Sat., Nov. 24th. This show is well worth the money. You get your money's worth. Very tallented cast; I mean EVERYONE!! Lots of fabulous singing and lots of laughs!! Oh, and some really good tap dancing too. Would highly recommend this show!!!!

“Talent and quality of production has decreased greatly recently.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We have visited Carolina Opry many times and have always enjoyed the show. Although the material never really changes, it has always been performed professionally. The performance last Saturday night(Nov. 26, 2012) was extremely poor. The sound system was not good, and a overall disappointment. Hopefully, this can be fixed before Myrtle Beach loses one of the best things it has ever had.
