It’s not Christmas at the beach without a visit to a live performance at one of our award-winning theaters! 2020 has been extra hard on live theaters everywhere, and the Myrtle Beach area was no exception. But thankfully, most live performance venues are open again with new safety measures in place. Wherever you go, you’ll experience reduced capacity, masking, extra sanitation and cleaning, social distancing and PLENTY of Christmas cheer. Here are a few of our favorite shows come the holiday season:
The Christmas Show of the South
The Christmas Show of the South at The Carolina Opry (8901 North Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach) begins in the stunning lobby of the expansive theatre. Every year, they top their Christmas decorations—the lobby alone features more than 35 Christmas trees and 5 miles of Christmas tree lights! This holiday show is a fan-favorite, and in its 35th year running. Guests will experience the talented vocalists and performers, including Delvin Choice (who was featured on NBC’s The Voice) and new castmate Rory John Zak, along with longtime beloved cast members Tangena Church and Brad Long—as well as the popular All That! clogging group.
