Wrap yourself in the warmth of the holiday spirit and Southern charm at The Carolina Opry’s eagerly-awaited annual Christmas production, “The Christmas Show of the South”.
Taking the stage in November and December at The Carolina Opry Theater in Myrtle Beach, this holiday tradition features a talented cast of singers, dancers, musicians, comedians and more to spread Christmas cheer to packed houses. The shows deliver a multitude of classic holiday songs, dance numbers, a brass section, comedy routines and occasional special guests, including an appearance by Santa Claus and a real one-horse open sleigh.
The Carolina Opry also undergoes a major holiday makeover to set the scene for the Christmas show. Featuring more than 5 miles of stringed lights, 75 wreaths and 35 Christmas trees, including a 30-foot centerpiece in the main lobby, The Carolina Opry is transformed into a winter wonderland where families can have holiday photos taken with a beautiful backdrop. The lobby also offers traditional holiday treats in addition to its usual concession lineup, and a gift shop loaded with souvenirs to remember the occasion.
The Carolina Opry offers year-round entertainment at the 2,200-seat venue, which features the best in lighting, sound and comfortable seating. The main event, The Carolina Opry’s self-titled show, runs the other 10 months of the year and brings top talent to the stage. Amazing vocalists, musicians, dancers and other entertainers perform constantly updated versions of the show.
Other productions that run throughout the year include The Carolina Opry show, a variety show that includes singing, dancing, comedy and more, and Time Warp, a tribute to the music of the 1960s and ’70s. The Carolina Opry also hosts special concert appearances by touring acts.
