The Carolina Opry
What has been called the ‘Leader in Live Entertainment’ by CNBC and the ‘State's Most Outstanding Attraction’ by the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, The Carolina Opry is a must-visit while in Myrtle Beach. Located within the Calvin Gilmore Theater, this performing arts center puts on daily performances of varying genres such as Broadway, rock, gospel, and pop. The amazing vocals mixed with high energy dances and high-tech effects make this truly one of the best shows in the state, and the New York Times, CNN, and NBC agree!
As the name suggests, Calvin Gilmore started this successful center, changing from a Missouri Ozark Gospel boy into an award-winning music center guru. The theater has been running for over 3 decades now, one popular show in particular, TCO, being around since the beginning. TCO is a two-hour high-energy performance that combines comedy, music, and dance into an unforgettable show experience, this performance earning the coveted Governor’s Cup.
You can also enjoy a blast from the past with the Time Warp show, get holly and jolly at the Christmas Show of the South, enjoy a few slights of hand at the Pure Magic Show, or feel the music at the Thunder and Light laser show. The Carolina Opry is extremely group friendly and offers guests in larger groups the opportunity to meet the cast, add on dinner packages, and even take studio workshops and educational sessions, as well.
