When we got into town we signed up for two shows at the Opry. We had been to the Dixie Stampede and the Alabama One show in years past and wanted something different. My husband is not a big country fan and so we opted for their new show called Good Vibrations. As we are Boomers we thought this medley of music and antics from '60s, '70s, and '80s would be more to our liking. Well, I am sorry to say we were disappointed. When you buy your tickets the seller informs you that you should arrive at least a half hour early. There is a pre-show they say. Well the pre-show turned out to be TV clips from Laughin, Saturday Night Live and some other period shows. The best part of the show as a Cheech and Chong skit and the talented group called All That who made a name for themselves as part of the new show Americas Got Talent.
The seats were not that comfortable and the show was very long and with it extended by a half hour full of TV clips it was too much. When we bought the tickets though, we had an option of buying tickets to another of the shows in this theater for $10 a piece. We did purchase two tickets to the Carolina Opry Show but after our disappointing experience we gave them to our neighbors at the cottages for free. They used them and said they had a wonderful time. So who knows it may have been the choice we made in shows.

This is located in the area north of Broadway at the Beach. I saw the show named "One". I was given a free ticket for this show from a timeshare presenter.
This was fantastic.
I will try to attend new shows at this venue in the future.

The Twelve Days Of Christmas was presented with each member of the chorus singing about one day while a comedian grabbed a toy out of a barrel while feigning simple bumpkin behavior. One comedy skit on Jingle Bells featured Jedediah, Jr., a dog that can scratch his fleas to the beat of music. The performance was about backwoods hillbillies strumming out a little country Christmas music. During I’m Dreaming Of A White Christmas, one of the cast hollered out, "Take a sick day, pal." It got a lot of laughs.
Costuming for dance performances gave a formal seriousness to the Christmas season while capturing a Carolina Southern feeling. It was two and a half hours of enjoyment with a 20-minute intermission.
We ordered our tickets online and received a $4 discount and were able to pick where we wanted to sit. We got excellent seats we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get. With conveyance tax, the whole thing came to $38.50 apiece. We sat about 2/3 of the way from the stage in the center (F21 19-20). The theater was completely filled. Bus loads of seniors from all over the Carolinas were brought there for the show. The show has won the South Carolina Governor’s Cup, the state’s highest tourism award.
You won’t have any trouble finding the place if you go north on 17 bypass or 17 bus. They intersect at that attraction.

Although the Carolina Opry has its roots in country music, the repertoire covered all gambits of music from country to rock to broadway. One section of the show covered popular songs of each decade from the 50s to the present. The singers and musicians were all top quality entertainers. Some of the songs that I personally like included: "Last Date", "Private Malone", "Leader of the Pack", "Then He Kissed Me", "I Believe", "Slow Hand", and many, many more.
Including the pre-show, the performance lasted almost three hours, with a short intermission.
