The Carolina Opry Christmas Special, “The Christmas Show of the South" and the first nightly Christmas Special on the Grand Strand - and still the grandest of them all. The Carolina Opry has been a family tradition for dozens of seasons, bringing the spirit of Christmas to life with music, comedy and dance. The Christmas Special brings time-honored traditions blended with stunning changes, combining the traditional music of the season with Yuletide comedy for an evening of holiday entertainment you'll long remember.
This Holiday Season, Calvin Gilmore Theatre is pulling out all the stops and embodying the spirit of Christmas with their second to none, holiday decorations. The transformation takes place over a week where the crew works to create a winter wonderland including over 35 Christmas trees (including a 30 foot lobby tree with 25,000 lights,) 75 wreaths, over 5 miles of tree lighting wires, a gorgeous array of ornaments, and mounds of snow! Christmas begins at The Carolina Opry. Often imitated, but never equaled, it remains The South's most loved holiday show; blending beloved classics with great new favorites, all bound together by fresh comedy and breathtaking dance. Come home to The Carolina Opry for Christmas. It's warm, it's funny, it's shamelessly sentimental, and your family is going to love it more than ever! The Carolina Opry is the only show that has won every major South Carolina Tourism award including the Governor's Cup and most Outstanding Attraction. It is the only show that has been featured by NBC Nightly News, USA Today, CNN, Variety and Hollywood Reporter. This show is seasonal and only operates from November through to early January.
