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..

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

I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. Always a professional performances by some very talented singers, dancers and musicians. Outstanding performance today as my wife and I attended the 1PM Christmas Special. You can't find a better performance then what the Carolina Opry provides. Highly recommended and always one of our stops when in Myrtle Beach.

Beautiful mix of music styles--everything from hammered dulcimer to rock n roll! The costumes and the sets are very lovely but I have to say that my favorite part is the dead pan comedian who comes out from time to time. He is hysterical. This show is wonderful and you really get your money's worth. The dancers, cloggers, singers and... More

One of the best Christmas shows we have seen. Everyone involved in the production was clearly professional. The dancing, singing and comedy was great, and there was never a dull moment. Not only was the theatre wonderfully decorated, but they had a wonderful stage set. Wow, and the amount of costume exchanges were aplenty....not to mention, beautiful. Don't miss this... More

Like the cloggers, dancers, singers. It was a little this and that so the entertainment fits everyone. Did not like the popcorn.

Family friendly, good clean fun. Professional entertainers and they changes things up from year to year. Matinees do have more children, something I had forgotten. Even a good kid can only sit still so long. Still our favorite and you will leave feeling great.

My first Christmas show at Myrtle Beach since the Rockettes used to be at the Palace. The first half we started to get restless after song after song. But the second half came at rocking and kept us captivated until the awesome surprise (and perfect) ending! We felt we got our money's worth but have since heard the Alabama show... More

A couple of years ago,(2012 I think) we attended the Christmas Show at the Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was positively the best, most professional Christmas show I have ever seen. I believe that this show begins early in November and goes til almost Christmas. It is certainly worth the price and if we are ever in... More
