Make Your Holiday Complete With These Myrtle Beach Holiday Shows

Myrtle Beach is known for its 60 miles of beaches, more than 90 championship golf courses and so much more. But those planning their holiday vacations can find a lot more to do in Myrtle Beach during the holiday season, including seemingly endless holiday shopping opportunities and great theaters that produce entertaining holiday extravaganzas.

The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is just one of those holiday shows. The special event brings the fun spirit of Christmas to life with music, comedy and dance. Its longer title is “The Calvin Gilmore Presents Christmas Show of the South,” and on Nov. 1 it will start its 38th season with baritone Moses Braxton as a highlight. Braxton’s legendary voice has been described as being not just a gift, but “a force of nature.”

The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is one of the many entertainment features at Myrtle Beach during the holidays. And Myrtle Beach is the place to be for those seeking different types of Christmas shows.

Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show

The crew puts a swashbuckling spin on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” during the Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show. The mystical Christmas spirit takes Captain Scrooge on a journey through time and space to find the meaning of Christmas. The whole family will enjoy seeing giant Christmas toys come to life as those toys perform acrobatics high above the lagoon. Audience members will also enjoy the hijinks of a comical castaway and her sea lion companion.

Much more than that is in store as the show features an epic battle between the Crimson and Emerald pirates as they compete for the coveted Christmas treasure on land, on deck, and in water. The battle also makes its way high above two full-sized pirate ships.

The South’s Grandest Christmas Show

Comedic Juggler Slim Chance is new to this season’s The South’s Grandest Christmas Show, and Slim promises to put a new twist on the Christmas season. The show takes place at Alabama Theater, and visitors and locals have voted it the Best Live Entertainment Theater in Myrtle Beach numerous times. The theater got its start when members of the famed country group Alabama decided to bring their unique talents to the rising entertainment industry on the Grand Strand.
