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..

My husband and I went with one other couple. The show was great. The Christmas decorations in the lobby were phenominal. The show featured a live horse pulling a sleigh, real "snow", and the wonderful clogging/tapping group "All That" which have been on tv and many other places. Very nicely produced. Great variety of songs and costumes. Great Christmas spirit.... More

This was the best Christmas Show ever. We have been to a lot of Christmas Shows at Myrtle Beach over the last 15 years, and I am always excited to see The Carolina Opry show, and this year the show was just awesome.

This show was an excellent, tightly produced production. The cast sang, moved and performed flawlessly through out the show, The multiple exquisite costumes and set changes were impressive. The live musicians and their inter-action, added to the over all experience. A must see for all visiting the Myrtle Beach area during the Christmas Holiday. As for my wife and myself... More

We visited the Carolina Opry during December and they presented their Christmas show. It was a good balance of comedy and song & dance suitable for the entire family. My teen daughter enjoyed it so that says a lot.

The Opry which is a mix of all types of music, but leans towards the Country side. The entertainers are seasoned pros in dance, song, and comedy. Bought season tickets to be able to go as often as we can. Christmas show is fabulous!

The performers worked really hard. Super voices, great choreography, the sets were stunning, the costumes amazing, the sound and lighting system were superb. By the end of the first act I thought it was over as it was such a high energy show with tons of songs. Act II was just as good. Comedians were "hokey" but all in all... More
