The Carolina Opry
If New York's Broadway and Nashville's Grand Ole Opry had a baby, it would be the Carolina Opry in Myrtle Beach.
Featuring the best live entertainment on the Grand Strand, the Carolina Opry is known for attracting world-class talent and award-winning shows. The state-of-the-art, 2,200-seat Calvin Gilmore Theater provides an intimate setting for outstanding music, dancing and entertainment with top-quality sound, stage and lighting.
Four highly acclaimed shows await you and your group, including the self-title "Carolina Opry." This two-hour musical, dance, and comedy showcase features traditional American song-and-dance numbers by some of the top artists in the business. This show has been running for 28 straight years with periodic updates and it keeps people coming back for more.
"Good Vibrations" takes audiences on a high-energy musical tour of the 1960's, '70's and '80's, featuring the greatest hits from the early days of rock-n-roll through the Summer of Love and from disco through the age of New Wave. Uncanny covers of timeless hits will have the younger crowd dancing in the aisles and the older set taking a stroll down musical memory lane.
"LIGHT Laser Extravaganza" is the latest addition to the Carolina Opry lineup and has quickly become a smash. Featuring high-tech special effects and a lean toward an edgier style of music from classic-rock acts like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and U2, LIGHT lights up the theater and the crowd with a multi-colored, mind-blowing performance.
And last on the calendar but certainly not in popularity, the "Carolina Opry Christmas Special" is a must-see for those on the Grand Strand in November and December. Nicknamed "The Christmas Story of the South," this holiday showcase sets the stage for an ideal country Christmas with singing, dancing, comedy and a reflection on the reason for the season.
