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..

“Christmas Show is Special!”
Reviewed November 29, 2009

Our group of five attended The Carolina Opry Christmas Special in November 2009. The app. 2 1/2 show was wonderful. The selection of Chistmas songs, performers and set lighting and decorations were all great. My wife and I went to the Good Vibrations show back in 2007 and that was great too. I would highly recommend the Christmas Show at The Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach. We bought the Christmas DVD so we could have remembrances of the show.

“The Best Show in Town”
Reviewed November 26, 2009

We have seen both the "regular" and Christmas shows and both are excellent. The Christmas Show is the greatest. It is fun and inspirational. It has become a tradition for us. The cast is not only talented, but so approachable that you feel like they are friends. We will be back for as long as they perform.

“Good Vibrations show fantastic!”
Reviewed October 10, 2009

My husband and I recently attended the Good Vibrations Show at the Caroline Opry - 60's, 70's and 80's music - wonderfully done 90 min. show! Singers, dancers, costumes, props were great and we really appreciated the show of support for the US Military Veterans who were in attendance. They serve popcorn and food there (like concessions at a movie theatre) - no alcohol - so a great family venue.

“Great.......if you're into that kind of entertainment.”
Reviewed August 19, 2009

Well performed songs and costumes. The tap dancers, All That (who'd won 2nd place on America's Got Talent) were fabulous. Talented performers of country music. Mostly for anyone over 25. My 20 and 21 year old went with us. They left at intermission. Although they enjoyed the instrumentals and jokes, they became bored with the renditions of country/pop cover songs. Some of the jokes/jabs were for the right wing conservative group, although not offensive. You will enjoy this, if you like amusement park shows and variety shows. I thought it was too pricey: $50/pp.

“Great show.”
Reviewed August 16, 2009

I'm not much of a country music fan, and this show is a bit heavy on country before the intermission, but I really enjoyed this show. Much better than The One Show, although we liked it also. The dancers were great and the comedian stole the show a couple of times, especially as the old lady. The lighting was superb, as was the sound. An all-around good show. The emcee/musician and fiddle player both stood out to me, but the twelve year old who traveled with us liked the dancers and all of the country music best.
