The Carolina Opry

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by lharri on June 6, 2007

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.
