Description

from The Carolina Opry
If you only see one show, this is the one! The Carolina Opry has won every major South Carolina tourism award including Most Outstanding Attraction and the prestigious Governor's Cup. Year after year, The Carolina Opry is voted the Best Show by readers of the Myrtle Beach Sun News, a Knight-Ridder newspaper. And it's the only show that has been featured on NBC Nightly News, CNN, TNN, and USA Today, which called it "A Big Hit.” The New York Post called it "A Hot Ticket.”

Entertainer and entrepreneur Calvin Gilmore launched The Carolina Opry on South Carolina's Grand Strand in 1986. His live music variety show features a cast of 36 of the nation's top singers, dancers, comedians and musicians in its own 2200-seat show palace with state-of-the-art sound and lighting and three giant video screens. The show, which is continually updated with new music and comedy, is two hours of high energy entertainment that blends humor and dancing with everything from rock 'n roll, Broadway, and country to classic hits, pop melodies and gospel. Young and old are counted among its fans who are sure to include a performance in their visit to Myrtle Beach.

In November and December, the theater is transformed into a winter wonderland where the magic of the season comes alive in The Carolina Opry Christmas Special a wonderfully dazzling, jolly and sentimental musical celebration of America's best-loved holiday.

I was in total shock from from the first chord. This ensemble is truly worth EVERY DIME and then some! If you love music from the 60's, 70's and 80's you will NOT be disappointed with Time Warp!! Sometimes you forget that these are not the original recording artists. Just GO.

We enjoyed two shows here, first Time Warp and then for only $15 pp we were given tickets to another show, Carolina Opry, what a good deal! the only downside is that although we saw a different show, the performers were the same. The singers and especially the dancers were excellent. Beautiful theather!

What an amazing show! Everyone from our 8 year old to grandparents and all in between absolutely loved it! Such stunning illusions, great music, with wonderful stories along the way. The Wagsters are wonderful, great showman and showwoman, kind, so likable, and truly great magicians. We can't recommend it enough!

We went to the 10:30am showing today and were truly blessed by this wonderful couple. Their passion for magic and entertainment is empowering. It’s more than just a “magic show” - and I love that they acknowledge the support they get from everyone who is involved with their productions. I highly recommend seeing the Wagsters magic show and hearing about their journey. With God all things are possible. P.S. Granddad’s favorite act was a tearjerker for me - and truly amazing.

I was visiting Myrtle Beach and asked one of the local waitresses what I shouldn't miss during my short stay. She told me about a show called "Time Warp" that was playing at The Carolina Opry. She was spot on! I'm 62 and I started dancing in my seat as soon as the show started!! The performers were top notch, the song choices were spectacular and I didnt want it to stop! 2 hours just flew by. I would (and I do) recommend this show to everyone.
