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.

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..

Saw both shows . I love, love All That , the Clogging Dance Team. They are simply amazing. My favorite is the young lady who does Cindy Lauper impression of Girls Just Want to have fun. She also did an amazing rendition of I'll Always Love You. Great Show

Our group watched the new "Thunder and Light" show today at The Carolina Opry. We were absolutely blown away by the amazing talent of the "All That" cloggers, dancers, magic act, and the amazing vocals of Bibis Ellison. It was a high energy show, about 1 hour in length, that made the audience feel as though they were on stage... More

I can honestly say this is the ONLY show where you can see clogging routines choreographed to Michael Jackson's music as well glow-in-the-dark clogging. This high energy show is anchored by the world famous clogging team "All That" featured most recently on America's Got Talent and is a perfect mix of upbeat music, colorful lights, and dance. The Opry recently... More

The music was great as well as costumes and scenery. They just added new seating and it was comfortable. Where ever you sat you could see the show. Recommend this show to all.

Went to the Carolina Opry to compare it with the Alabama show, which I loved. I was not as thrilled with this one. The most annoying thing was the big screen behind the acts which had endless videos on it - it was hard to decide which I was supposed to watch - the screen or the performers. Plus, you... More

The show was awesome and would come back again. The dancers and singers were great. The gift shop is one the best things because the products are the best and I can't wait to order more items.

The show was nice. The new chairs were wonderful. They were roomy and not like other theater seats. Very nice to be comfortable for a 2 hour show. I gave it a four for the seats. I read a few reviews that complained about all the smoke. There was lots of smoke that filled the whole auditorium. It didn't seem... More
