November 2022
I took my 82 year old mother to the Holiday show in Myrtle Beach and it was fantastic. All vocalists were very gifted and talented. The costumes were beautiful and the ensemble was very impressive.

"First time visit to The South's Grandest Christmas Show"
January 2020
This was my first time and I admit I was very skeptical of my visit . The foyer to the show looked beautiful very welcoming and Christmassy . The staff were all very friendly and helpful . It made for an exceptional welcome . The comedian who was the show's "filler" was a very good
entertainer . At the beginning of the show I was of mixed feelings ,some of the music was great ,some not so . Particularly the solo singers (female ) far too loud and piercing . I think overall the music was too loud . But perhaps this was deliberate due to the majority of patrons being in the retired class ?? After a while I started to enjoy the performance . It was of a mixed variety and all very well performed . I commend the performance because of all the details and effort that was put into the show . Very well done . Worth the money and we left full of Christmas spirit

Tip: The music is very loud . After the Intermission I noticed a lot of people had left . I think there was no clear announcement /confusion as to whether the show will go on or not . As I heard several comments such as "well it's supposed to be three hours !!!

"Annual Christmas entertainment."
December 2019
For the past 20 years, or so, we have been traveling to Myrtle Beach to see the Christmas shows and to celebrate my wife's birthday, 12/12. This year, after several years of ill health, we were both in great health and so the shows had great impact.
The Alabama Show was the best it has ever been! The comic Ricky Moxel was sensational. The MC was, as always, on top of everything. We marvel at the many costume changes.

Tip: Sit as close to the stage as possible and go early enough to brouse the gift shop.

Loved working with Tripster Vacations. It was so easy and the discount really helped, as I had to purchase 4 tickets. The show was awesome and would definitely see it again. I think this show is broadway-worthy. The talent is as good as it gets.
