from The Carolina Opry
If you only see one show, this is the one! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award, including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. Year after year, The Carolina Opry is voted the Best Show by the readers of the Myrtle Beach Sun News, a Knight-Ridder newspaper. And it’s the only show that has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, TNN, and USA Today.
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.
