Live Entertainment at The Carolina Opry
If you are looking for a great venue to enjoy live entertainment – look no farther than the Calvin Gilmore Theater! Home to the popular Carolina Opry, this venue has been an area staple for almost 30 years and is part of many visitors’ Myrtle Beach tradition! Home to four legendary shows, the Carolina Opry offers something for everyone and is a great place for date night or for a family outing.
The show that this cast is most known for is the original Carolina Opry Show, which proudly boasts winning every major South Carolina tourism award available. It is consistently voted as the Best Show of the Myrtle Beach Sun News. This two hour spectacle is continually updated with new acts and features everything from country and comedy to Broadway and rock – and everything in between. As they say, “If you only see one show...” – this is definitely the show to see!
The Good Vibrations Show is perfect for those looking to enjoy a blast from the past. This colorful, high energy performance showcases the best of the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s and will have you singing along and dancing in front of your seat. Hear classics from The Beatles, Kiss, Cyndi Lauper, and ZZ Top – to name a few. This groovy show lasts 90 minutes and is family friendly, so bring the whole group along!
The newest addition to the Carolina Opry lineup is the Light Laser Show. Completely different than any of the shows offered at this venue, you will have to see this spectacle to believe it. Laser lights are synchronized with themed shows, like “classic rock”, “family fun”, or “holidays” and guests can choose which show they attend. This show only runs 45 minutes and is ideal for families with children or those looking for a shorter performance.
The final show that the Carolina Opry offers is a seasonal performance that is wildly popular among locals and visitors alike. The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is approaching its 30th season and is better than ever. This year, American Idol’s La Toya London has joined the cast and sings several classic holiday hits. Christmas isn’t complete without a trip to the Carolina Opry Christmas Show!
Whether you are enjoying a night out on the town or are seeking a comfy indoor activity to escape the Myrtle Beach heat, the Carolina Opry promises fun for everyone. Great for groups, families, or couples, the shows here always bring a smile to guests’ faces. Call (843) 913-4000 for more information or to purchase tickets.
