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..

The Carolina Opry Christmas show is a wonderful Christmas performance full of acts that will make you laugh and feel good. The show is a little more focused towards Adults, however, if your child enjoys performances as such they might be more likely to enjoy.

My husband and I recently moved to Myrtle Beach after visiting many years with our girls. There is so much to do. The Christmas Show at the Carolina Opry was better the the Christmas Rockettes in New York City.

Yes but they request you limit the flash photography to a minimum to keep the cast focused on their performance. The gift shop does sell dvds, SD cards and cds of the performance.

Both sets of seats are on opposite ends of row 1. So you will have a side ways view of the stage. I have never preferred front row unless it is a concert where you can stand, sing and gyrate. Not so in this theater. Seats... More
