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 Christmas Show at the Carolina Opry is a high energy show until the very end. "Let it Go" by Tangena Church is outstanding. So are many other numbers. Unfortunately, "He Lives" by Rita Gumm remains in the show. The energy of the show is zapped at that point to make some kind of message. I am Christian and do... More

We really enjoyed the Christmas show at the Opry. The singers were very talented and the design was wonderful. It was very enjoyable. Not much for the kids though as it is 90% singing and not a whole lot of other entertainment.

great acoustics and the Christmas show is not to be missed. Costumes and gowns are all beautiful and vivid. Choreograph of numbers was seamless and songs were done with feeling. Great for all ages

The Christmas special at the Carolina Opry is worth the price of admission just to watch & listen to Rocky Fretz at the piano. His playing "Gloria" is my favorite & when I finish typing this I'm going to you tube & listen to it. Sometime I hope to go listen to one of Rocky's concerts!!

It started out a little slow but ended with a bang. The group all seemed to love it. Would come again.

The talent of the Carolina Opry cast is remarkable! We really enjoy this show... and generally go once every Christmas season. We loved all of the cast, but I especially loved Tangena Church's rendition of "Let it Go" from "Frozen" and Colton Cason's vocals, as well as the "All That" cloggers. We got tickets in advance and were seated in... More

I'm usually not one for superlatives, but this show was spectacular! The performers were multi-talented singers, dancers and musicians. The acts ranged from comedy sketches to clogging; singing and dancing to terrific soloists, one after another. The arrangements of the Christmas songs and others were like something Mannheim Steamroller would do. It wasn't just a Country Christmas show, but a... More
