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..

We attended this year's Christmas show as season ticket holders and also took 4 college students to the show with us. The musicians are some of the best you will ever see/hear and the vocalists are good as well. The reason we only give an average rating for the Christmas show 2016 is because of the comedy. We found it... More

Songs included traditional Christmas music as well as secular songs (He Lives). Captivating, steady flow of music & entertainment, wonderful comedy that will keep you laughing long after the show has ended. Their singers are top notch as are the comedy acts. This is a terrific value as the show started @ 7pm and ended at 9:30pm. Don't miss this... More

I was excited to see this show, based on the program presented on the website and reading the reviews, which were generally good. I was completely disappointed. First, the good. The facility is very nice. The theater was nicely decorated for Christmas, the ladies gowns were beautiful and the stage set was very pretty. The instrumentalists, particularly the bass player...

This show was outstanding! We didn't know what to expect so it was a wonderful surprise. We have teenaged son and daughter and they both enjoyed. It was a wonderful mix of beautiful music, fun music and comedy. The decorations and costumes were outstanding!

We attended the Christmas Show in late December. Depending upon your musical tastes, you may or may not like this show. We weren't impressed. Period. On a positive note, the building is lovely, with bright lights and Christmas decorations galore. The festive atmosphere definitely puts you in the holiday mood, and you can take some great Christmas photos. The show... More

The performers are amazing in their singing of very traditional Christmas songs. The comedian is very funny and provides some good laughs. My favorite part of the show is the All That clogging group. Their dancing is... More
