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 went with my 12 year old son and we both enjoyed the show. Very talented singers/dancers. My son enjoyed the comedy too. There are restaurants in walking distance at barefoot landing which makes it convenient to eat before the show.

It was a great upbeat show! We are not huge country music fans but this show was very entertaining. The performers were very good & we were not bored at all!

We travel to Branson often and see a lot of high quality shows and am happy to say that this one is right up there. A wholesome music and comedy show the entire family can enjoy.

We went to the TCO show at The Carolina Opry recently while in Myrtle Beach. A very good show overall and the performers are very talented. We have been to this theater a few times over the years and this year was similar to previous years, but there does seem to be a transition towards younger families. I think this... More

We saw this show in August 2014. It featured songs from the 50's to the 80's. The production was done very well. The performers were very talented. The seating was excellent. When in Myrtle Beach S.C. I would recommend this show. FYI, it is a long drive from most hotels out north on Kings Highway.
