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..

Many of the performers were quite talented. The string instrumentalists, several singers, the cloggers and the comedian. But......the programming was totally frenetic. The show darted from one genre to another - we heard covers of Pharell Williams, Katy Perry, Whitney Houston, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and on and on. The show lasted 2.5 hours with a brief intermission. I felt... More

We were a bit skeptical of the cost of the show because we spent about $45 apiece for tickets. When we got to the theater, we were pleased that we had... More

My family and I used to visit the Carolina Opry every Thanksgiving weekend, since I was little. We haven't been able to make it recently, but I've always loved the show. I luckily won a pair of tickets on their facebook page, so my husband and I took off for the weekend and went to the show. Little did we... More

We went to see Garrison Keillor for his one-night performance and it was wonderful! This is a terrific venue - all seats are comfortable, the additional large screen tv's project the performer so everyone can see, and the acoustics are perfect. This is an award-winning venue and a not to be missed attraction while in MB.

The theater at Carolina Opry has very comfortable, spacious seating. The show begins promptly and the performers are great. For a show at the beach, this was better than I expected. It was fun, upbeat, and well done. Great costumes, wonderful musicians, fun comedian, talented singers and amazing hip-hop cloggers, "All That" added together for a great night's entertainment. Look... More

If you like the music of the 60's, 70's and 80's and want to hear good singers and see the costumes and dances of those years, then it is a worthwhile 2 1/2 hour show. Don't expect the glitz and talent of a Vegas show, but it's a good high energy show for the area. Would rate the singers highly,... More

Went to see the Time Warp show, it was great! The choice of songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's were a great mix. Non-stop show with a good mix of songs, dancing and comedy; really kept you going! The performers are great and I especially enjoyed the band. I noticed at the end of the show all the performers... More

We saw the "music of the 60, 70 and 80's" And it was an energetic presentation that had us all clapping and singing along.. Mostly local talent but all very talented. This is a very entertaining show and is definitely worth a visit. All seats are good but I would stay away from the far left and far right sections... More

We have seen the show twice recently and really enjoyed the voice of the new female singer. I think her named is Chastity. She's a tremendous improvement over the singer she replaced in last year's show. We were really disappointed we didn't hear Christie Templeton sing more last night. We especially enjoy hearing Desperado.
