Owner description: 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..

“Great Entertainment”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Two and a half hours of fast paced outstanding entertainment. Extremely talented group of singers, dancers, and comedians. Would be difficult to find a better entertainment value anywhere.

“Taking up clogging!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Really enjoyed all the old songs performed at Opry tonight but "All That" cloggers stole the show! We could have watched them all night! Beautiful facility, comfortable seating & reasonably priced. Gary Brown, Brad Long, Tangena Church & Christie Templeton have great voices! Would return if we came back to the area. Thanks for a fun night! Wish it was a younger audience-might have been more enthusiastic for the performers!

“New Format, New Seats and Performers! Great!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Some of the original staff are still there with a new younger group that the old and young both will love. The incredible tap dancing guys, "All That" are still going strong and many appearances on national TV. Calvin Gilmore has refurbished the theater with new wider more comfortable seats. GREAT SHOW. You will fill lifted in spirit after you see this show.

“Big Bang for your Buck”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The best live variety show that we have seen in a long time. An incredible mixture of music, comedy and dance. Songs for every age group with country, rock and current hits. This is a must see when visiting Myrtle Beach. Spend the extra for a comfy seat up close.

“Superb Talent, but we missed the old MC!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We attended the Carolina Opry this past weekend on April 19. My friend, Bibis Ellison is new to the cast and we were so excited to see her! She was incredible, as were all of the singers and performers! The Pirate skit with the comedian and the MC was SO WEIRD and everyone in my party thought the show was better without it or with a different comedy skit. The new seats were so comfy and lush. Bibis is AMAZING, LOVE her as a new face/contemporary edition to the show and songs!! Thanks for the incredible entertainment, yet again.
