Description

from The Carolina Opry Christmas Special
The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is the “Top attraction in Myrtle Beach” according to CNBC. A holiday tradition for over 30 years, The Carolina Opry Christmas Special brings the spirit of Christmas to life with music, comedy, and dance. Referred to as “The Holiday Show of the South,” this show is at the top of every Myrtle Beach Holiday itinerary.

Award-winning producer, director, and performer Calvin Gilmore said recently, “Right now, families and groups need light-hearted entertainment more than ever before. We are pulling out all the stops to make this the most amazing, funny, warm and wonderful show ever.”

As always, the 2017 Christmas show will bring stunning changes, beautifully blended with time-honored tradition to create a family experience that is second to none. New talent will mingle with acclaimed rotating artists and long-standing Opry favorites. A holiday brass section and some surprise vocalists will be joined by our award-winning cast of over 35 of the nation’s finest musicians, vocalists, dancers and special effects professionals – and a real horse-drawn sleigh and real snow!

The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is the original Christmas show in Myrtle Beach and has been a perennial vote leader as Best Holiday Show in Myrtle Beach. Shows run November 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, with regular evening performances and selectively scheduled matinees.

"Incredible VOCALS!"
December 2018
This cast was extremely talented vocally but the choreography was just not there for me. The program seemed to be way too fast pace for me as if they were trying to hurry up and get through. Illusionist was good along with the comedian. I would definitely attend again and would recommend to others. Well worth the money!

We hadn't been to Myrtle Beach at Christmas for 18 years. Of course The Carolina Opry was on our list of shows to see. How enjoyable it was. Everyone there is so friendly and picking up tickets so simple. Don't plan on waiting another 18 yrs to go back!

We had excellent seats 5th-row center. Seats were big and comfortable with plenty of legroom. The show itself was greater than expected. The variety of acts all complemented one another. The comedian stood out amongst the cast. He brought real laughter to the room.

So I read the reviews and was still was not sure of the Christmas Show! Glad to have diversity in the performers! The were spot on and it was obvious that they practiced long and hard for this evident. Singers were on- dancers were on- magician was on - comedian was cheesy. My biggest complaint- I had never been they before and a older lady (who I thought was a worker) said follow me - I said I need my tickets and she said ok. So she took me off to a lady who was trying to see me a time share- I had lost my disabled grandma and was trying to find my tickets and my group!! Shame on you guys!! I paid for very expensive tickets and I found my grandma sitting/leaning on stairway confused. Not only that but after I figured this was not the “will call” line and they lady was trying to sell me something- I said oh my God and started to work away. I could hear the lady yelling out to me! What kind of place is this? My gosh the tickets cost me an arm and a leg and you were trying to “trick” me into going to the wrong place!! Please stop that craziness- it is degrading and not respectful to your hard wording performers!
