Was very impressed with the Christmas in the South show. It was very family friendly. A great mix of music, dance and comedy. The 2 hours went by very quickly because of how packed the show was with great performances.

I thought the show was just ok. I went with my daughter and grand daughter, and they thought the same thing. It was too laid back, too country, boring at times, and how do you have a Christmas show without Santa Claus? The ads show multiple santa's, but there were none, and my grand daughter was disappointed....as this is supposed... More

First time at the Calvin Gilmore Theater...despite a long season was impressed with the cleanliness and comfortable seats as compared to some other venues in Myrtle Beach. The Christmas show is a non-stop Variety act with Christmas songs, Dancing, Comedy. If looking for a strictly traditional Christmas show, you might not like all of it, but the quality of the...

I just saw the Christmas Special here today, the talent is absolutely amazing. I sat near the back on the side and could still see perfectly. The facilities were neat and clean, the staff was courteous, and the decorations were next level. A MUST SEE show if you are visiting with friends, family, or your loved one!

I went with my school to see the Christmas show. They had a amazing clogging performance from "All That" and a nice magic show from the Wagsters! I will definitely be returning again!

You always get a great show here. These are very talented people who perform multiple roles during the show. They are singers, dancers, musicians, comedians all in one show. They are the most energetic performers that you will see anywhere. This is the second show that I have seen here and both were excellent. Show was about 2.5 hours. I... More

Over the years I have seen all the Christmas shows in Myrtle Beach. The Carolina Opry Christmas Show is by far the best I have seen. The singers, dancers, comedians, and musicians are all fantastic. I missed seeing Kym (Bogie) and pray he will be able to return soon. Trent Wideman is doing a wonderful job with comedy along with... More

Our first time attending a show here so we weren't real sure what to expect. We were not disappointed! I don't think there's a bad seat in the house, what a lovely venue. The show started on time, and from the very beginning we were captivated. Something for all ages too. Talent was first rate. The piano player was astounding... More
