We attended the Time Warp program and it was outstanding! The music and dancers were fabulous. My favorite was the many performances by "All That" cloggers. They are the best! I have attended many other shows at The Carolina Opry and have never been disappointed.

Loved the live entertainment the night we came here. The 50's and 60's theme. The singers were great as well as the costumes. Fun place to visit.

Saw the time warp show. Music was excellent, the performance was excellent, my seat was 2nd row, and the snacks and drinks inside were very reasonably priced. Factor in the low price of the show and it was a great bargain!

This is home to various show productions. We saw "Time Warp" which features songs from the 60s,70s, and 80s. The entertainers are very talented and high energy. This can be considered a family show if you have younger chldren.

My wife and I attend the Christmas Show every year. Always a joy. A wonderful show, but the finale with Rita Gumm singing "He's Alive" brings the house down.

I was a little apprehensive, especially being a "northerner," but this was a very entertaining show. Everyone on stage was very talented, great voices, and the dancers were really fun to watch. It is obviously focused on country/western, but there is enough variety to entertain...More

Both sets of seats are on opposite ends of row 1. So you will have a side ways view of the stage. I have never preferred front row unless it is a concert where you can stand, sing and gyrate. Not so in this theater. Seats... More
