If you only see one show while you're in Myrtle Beach, it must be the show that brought entertainment to Myrtle Beach – The Carolina Opry. From the moment you enter the stunning two-story marble lobby, you know you are in for an extraordinary experience that your family will remember long after the tans have faded and the sand has been shaken from the shoes.

"An entertainment phenomenon" (Southern Living Magazine). There are two things that you have to see when you come to the Grand Strand: the ocean, and The Carolina Opry. It’s that simple. The first variety show in Myrtle Beach – and still the jewel in its crown, The Carolina Opry has for 21 years been thrilling the hundreds of thousands of visitors who pass through its doors each year. The New York Times calls it “A hit with visitors," The New York Post calls it “A Hot Ticket” and USA Today reports it “A Big Hit.” “Talk about high energy! That’s entertainment!” (Atlanta Journal-Constitution).




Frommer's Review

Missouri-born musician/entrepreneur Calvin Gilmore has been called a better businessman than a guitarist. He's credited with starting the incredible entertainment explosion in Myrtle Beach by launching this theater back in 1986 and attracting a host of imitators. In 1992, the original Carolina Opry moved into this new 2,200-seat facility, complete with its own recording studio. Shows offer a variety of music, including country, bluegrass, western swing, big band, patriotic, and show tunes, as well as comedy. The Christmas show is so popular that it's often sold out by June. Performances are daily at 8pm.
