"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.

Tip: Get ready for a wonderful heart warming experience like you've never seen!!! I've been wanting to see this show for quite some time. Finally...it happened during my last visit to Myrtle Beach in December. Unfortunately the holidays have become so commercialized and the real meaning of Christmas has been lost.Host was wonderful, costumes were spectacular, comedian was hysterical. Your web-site was easy to use and the discount was great!!! I recommend this show to all. Its an uplifting spiritual experience....

I have seen this show every time I visit Myrtle Beach and I absolutely love it. The comedian, Ricky Mokel, is hilarious. The headliner, Gregg, is super talented. The entire ensemble is over-the-top talented. Musicians , costumes, songs and dancing leave you with a positive vibe. If I lived in Myrtle Beach I would want to see the performers they have on Saturdays on a regular basis. The venue is beautiful and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's a great place for entertainment.

Show started out with a comedian, Rickie Mokel, omg, I laughed so hard I had tears! The music and singing was good, country, old country, 50's bop, a couple current pop songs and a few Disney songs. The dancers were good, one was great, he was in the center and he seemed to give it his all the entire show. A couple of the dancers, sang too. We had a blast!

On Saturday, February 22, 2020 I attended a concert at the Alabama Theater. My seats were in section A, row 10, which afford a very close look at the emergency exit of the theater. My seat was approximately 15 feet from the emergency exit. At the beginning of the show a fellow came on stage and pointed out these emergency exits to the sellout crowd attending said concert. Once the concert began I was shocked to see that a line of chairs were blocking the emergency exit and five people (four of whom were ushers) were sitting across the exit in folding chairs. Glancing across the theater to the other emergency exit on the opposite side I noticed the exact same thing. I have to believe this is against the law, certainly in violation of the fire code, and exceedingly irresponsible of theater management/ownership. At the first intermission I went and complained to several ushers who told me that this has been going on forever. They went on to say that they have brought this up to management on many occasions and have been ignored. They seemed to understand the serious nature of this problem but said that there was simply nothing that they could do. They referred me to the manager, Tom Yates. Upon meeting with Mr. Yates, he too was completely understanding and his boss who was standing next to him said, “I have someone you need to meet.” They then introduced me too Jac Humphreys whom they said was the owner. Understand that everyone seemed overly anxious to get me up the line to speak with Mr. Humphreys; I’m guessing it was because they understand that what’s been going on for so long is just unacceptable. Upon meeting with Mr. Humphreys, he didn’t seem the least bit concerned and even laid out an argument as to why this was totally acceptable and necessary. He even accused me of just being someone who was trying to drum up some problems. That was the least of my intentions. He did rectify the problem for the second half of the show. From five different employees that I spoke to that night, they all assured me that this practice of illegally blocking the emergency exits has been going on for a very long time. This is a problem that cannot be ignored. The fact that is has been allowed to go on unabated for so long is an absolute disgrace, to say nothing about how unethical and potentially life-threatening it is to the thousands of Alabama Theater patrons. I contacted all three owners, Mr Humphreys, Bob Wood, and Charles Bradshaw at 843-272-5758 X 4409. I also contacted the NMB Fire Marshall Greg Frazier, along with the Director of Public Safety, Fire Inspector, and Fire Chief. This was only necessary because ownership seemed to care less about this issue. How very sad for a theater of this magnitude. The Fire Marshall did email me back and said next time just call the emergency dispatch and they will address it. If you see this dangerous and reckless policy in action please do not ignore it! I took a picture during intermission but the ushers had just gotten up. Having said all of that, we did enjoy the show, "One" which I would recommend on any evening they choose NOT to block the emergency exits!
