I was expecting a variety show. Not only did the show lack diversity but so did the audience. Most of the audience were senior citizens. The show was pretty flat with mainly country and Broadway music. The best diversity was with the cloggers. We had...More

We have been to the Carolina Opry Christmas Show many times. The performers are top notch and this is a very family oriented show.
