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..

“Yes!”
Reviewed June 20, 2009

From the Presidential skit, to the 50's 60's 70's music the Carolina Opry made even these northerners cheer. I don't know if kids would like it, but we adults certainly did (and i'm not even a true adult.) It was clever, funny, and ran smoothly. If you see one show, make it this. It was cheaper than le grande cirque, and better.

“OK but not as good as it used to be”
Reviewed April 13, 2009

OK, So I took the wife and kids to a series of shows this week and the Carolina Opry was the 2nd of the shows that we attended. This used to be the best show in town but today it seems to be about money. The theater is beautifull and the stage set up is the best there is, but with the exception of "All That" the long time cast members seem to be too settled in and offered far less entertainment than the other shows. It is worth seeing, it really is, but now there are better shows in town that is younger, fresher and also worth seeing.

“Loved It!!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2009

Absolutely the best thing I have seen in several years. Great selection of music, singing was amazing. And yes "All That" was awesome, the clogging is great. My 14 year old son also loved it, and he's not in to the 70's songs. If you're a fan of the 60's and 70's, I would definately recommend this show.

“Bad Vibrations, not good”
Reviewed March 20, 2009

The "Good Vibrations" title is misleading. They mean bad vibrations, MUCH too loud. Annoying irritating incessant thumping. Much of lyrics indecipherable due to loud distorted sound. Not recommended for people with good hearing. Singers were often good if you could make out the words. The 4 men dancers were excellent and saved the show for me.
