The Myrtle Beach area is well-known for its summertime-centered attractions, such as its 60 miles of beautiful beaches, its multiple water parks, and its abundant on-the-water activities like fishing, boating and parasailing. But the Grand Strand shines bright in the wintertime too — especially when it comes to the area’s holiday shows.
Looking for a fun and festive night on the town during your next holiday getaway on the Grand Strand? Head for one of these three top holiday extravaganzas that are sure to send your holiday spirit soaring:
Presented in a high-seas-themed theater on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, the Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show puts a nautical spin on Charles Dickens’ famed “A Christmas Carol.” This swashbuckling show sees the mystical Christmas spirit take Captain Scrooge on a thrilling journey through time and space to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Along the way, encounters with acrobatic seafarers, a comical castaway and her pet sea lion, the Three Wise Men on camels, and an angel sent to convey a special holiday message — along with action-filled battles on and above two full-sized pirate ships and an in-house lagoon — add fun, excitement and seasonal spirit to the adventure. Further, to top it all off, a four-course feast is served to all the show’s attendees.
A perennial holiday favorite at the Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach, award-winning musical production The South’s Grandest Christmas Show wows crowds six nights a week with talented performers, beautiful seasonal scenery, and amazing special effects. Delivering heavy doses of song, dance, and laughter while serving up a setlist of cherished holiday classics and seasonal-favorite contemporary tunes, the show is designed to delight audiences while instilling the true meaning of Christmas in all attendees.
Celebrating its 38th season in production in 2023, The Christmas Show of the South is a long-established holiday tradition on the Grand Strand. The production, presented at The Carolina Opry Theater on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, features an award-winning cast of 35-plus musicians, singers and dancers, all accompanied by the Calvin Gilmore Orchestra. And if the holiday musical fare isn’t enough to get attendees into the Christmas spirit, the winter-wonderland setting should be. To prepare for the Christmas show, the theater’s crew spends more than a week decorating the venue with 35 Christmas trees, 5 miles of Christmas tree lights, endless ornaments, and massive mounds of synthetic snow — all in addition to a breathtaking 30-foot tree adorned with more than 25,000 lights.
