The Carolina Opry Christmas Special


About The Carolina Opry Christmas Special

The Carolina Opry Christmas Special, often called "The Christmas Show of the South," will open its 39th season of enchanting holiday performances on November 1st. Gilmore works for months to create an unforgettable holiday experience, with his usual signature flair for production. Each year, the Christmas special brings stunning changes, beautifully blended with time-honored tradition to create a family experience that is second to none as new talent mingles with acclaimed rotating artists and long-standing Opry favorites. The only show in Myrtle Beach to be touted as "the real thing," real talent, real production values, real entertainment--the "Top attraction in Myrtle Beach" according to CNBC, and a holiday tradition for over thirty years. The Carolina Opry Christmas Special brings the warm, wonderful, and fun spirit of Christmas to life with music, comedy and dance.
Among the award-winning cast, you'll also see the renowned All That! Clogging Group, seen on NBC's American's Got Talent, Tangena Church, Christie Templeton, Chas Croft Sorrells, Nashville recording artist Brad Long, champion fiddler Trent Wideman, a bonus seasonal brass section, and 35 of the nation's most talented vocalists and musicians--all accompanied by the Calvin Gilmore orchestra, led by Kevin Hughes with the Margaret Rice dancers in the holiday-embellished Carolina Opry Theater.
The Carolina Opry Theater is known throughout the Southeast for its extravagant holiday d?cor, an attraction in and of itself. In a dramatic one-week shut-down, the transformation into a winter wonderland begins as the crew spends all night and the entire following week preparing over 35 Christmas trees, 75 wreaths, 5 miles of tree lighting wire, countless tree ornaments, and mounds of Christmas snow, all presided over by the stunning 30-foot tree with more than 25,000 lights. House photographers are available for family photos in front of the splendid tree--many of them ending up on family Christmas cards.
