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..

My partner went to the Carolina Opry Wed night and were excited. The old man who was the usher just ignored us. We tried to find our seat ourselves and and went back to the front and asked for assistance. Apparently they cater to older white people, because I didn't see one person of color in the entire place.

The shows are always first class. The new seats are great, with twice as much room between rows it seems like as before.The seats even rock some.Entry and exit great. I wish the camera guy had been a little better with the pictures.

A good entertainment center by the Dolly Parton company. A bit out of town on route 17 on the way to one of two Tanger Outlet Malls (which are well worth a visit)

This is one of our favorite shows in MB. The singers, musicians, comedians, dancers, & ALL THAT put on a wonderful show every time we have been there. They have their regular show, plus on designated nights, they perform Good Vibrations (60's, 70's, & 80's music), plus laser shows. Their Christmas show is a must see! They have new seats,... More

We attended a concert called Good Vibrations which was 60's, 70's and 80's music. Excellent talent and sets. Enjoyed it very much.

The seats were comfortable. That is the only good thing I can say about this show. The show does not connect with the audience. I do not recommend this show.

We were here for the Christmas show last season and it was really fun. The lobby was stunning with an enormous tree and tastefully decorated for the holidays. We brought an elderly friend who uses a walker and the theater was very accommodating, even providing a booster seat for our friend. It was a Christmas show like nothing we had... More

We went on a short vacation and took in two performances at the Carolina Opry. The venue is beautiful and the use of lighting and special effects give it a Vegas feel. The entertainers both nights were outstanding. The "Good Vibrations" show was listed as music from the 60's, 70's and 80's. It definitely leans toward the later music. However,... More
