Need an entertainment hotspot that will tickle the funny bones of the whole family, from little ones to retired ones?
Visit the Alabama Theatre, where you’ll find an array of shows and concerts year-round at 4750 Hwy 17 S. in North Myrtle Beach (located within Barefoot Landing). Long-standing country music stars Alabama, who got their start performing on the Grand Strand, opened the 2,000-seat theatre in 1993.
From February to October, families can flock to ONE The New Show for an evening of singing, dancing and comedy that pulls its musical roots from a wide variety of genres. If you hit the coast around the holidays, make sure to check out The South’s Grandest Christmas Show. This award-winning production combines Christmas classics with modern holiday hits and kicks off in November.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on the calendar for an updated list of concerts. You just may spot entertainers like The Temptations, Vince Gill, the Oak Ridge Boys and Bill Cosby on a night out. Plus, if you’re a beach music fan, head to the annual Carolina Beach Music Awards, held each fall at the Alabama Theatre.
With all this variety, the venue offers a great array of specials, discounts and group ticket sales. Couples may flock to the 2 Show Special, which offers a 30% discount on a second show after the purchase of a ticket to ONE The New Show, The South’s Grandest Christmas Show or a guest concert. Keep an eye out for special fireworks on Monday nights and throughout the summer as they light up the sky over the lake at Barefoot Landing. Don’t forget to look into other specials and discounts, like season passes, dining deals and hotel packages.
