The holiday season in Myrtle Beach is one of the most magical times of the year! Seasonal decorations are found on the lamps lining the streets, there are lights twinkling in the trees, and live greenery and wreaths adorned with red bows hanging on the doors. On the Grand Strand the excitement of the season is brought to life onstage at performances at The Carolina Opry, The Alabama Theatre, Pirates Voyage and Legends in Concert. The area boasts some of the best Christmas shows of the South, so be sure to buy yourself a ticket to get in the holiday spirit while you’re visiting Brittain Resorts and Hotels.
Christmas at Pirate’s Voyage Dinner and Show
It’s all hands on deck at the Pirate’s Voyage Christmas show full of wonder and excitement! This holiday production is unique in that it takes place on land, ship and sea! You’ll watch the journey of Captain Scrooge as he travels through time and space, searching for the true meaning of Christmas – a “pirate” twist on the Christmas classic “A Christmas Carol”. The ocean isn’t quite large enough for both the Crimson Pirates and the Emerald Pirates, especially when there’s Christmas treasure involved. You’ll find yourself holding your breath as the two sides engage in an epic battle on board the two giant pirate ships and ending with a few pirates going overboard and splashing into the sea! Between laughing at the antics of the sea lion, watching intricate acrobatics above the lagoon, and marveling at the nativity scene delivering a special Christmas message, this is one entertaining holiday dinner and show that won’t disappoint!
The South’s Grandest Christmas Show
The South’s Grandest Christmas Show at the Alabama Theatre is full of amazing dance numbers, ballads, and musical performances. The stage is beautifully decorated with a grand staircase, stockings hung on a beautiful mantle, hand-painted building fronts, a magnificent twinkling tree. Life-size toy soldiers tickle the ivories – but not with their fingers! Instead they hop around the keys, creating the melodies with their feet. In between the musical performances, you’ll be amused by the pranks and jokes of the comedian. The ballads are a combination of the traditional Christmas classics mixed amongst the current contemporary holiday tunes that make for a wonderful compilation of Christmas music. This is a Christmas Show that the whole family is sure to enjoy!
The Carolina Opry Christmas Special
The magic of the holidays is brought to life by the sights and sounds of the holiday season at The Carolina Opry Christmas Special. This unforgettable production, known as the “Christmas Show of the South”, creates quite the experience with exciting dance numbers, musical performances, and the singing of holiday classics. Bells will be ringing and toes will be tapping – especially those of “All That” – a group of internationally known cloggers! You might find yourself singing along to the holiday songs intermingled with the Christmas classics. And the show even features some renditions of songs your kids will be able to recognize! The ambience of the holidays is not only felt in the musical performances, but also captured in the elegant decorations and the glow of the lights on the enormous Christmas tree. The Carolina Opry Christmas Special is a must-see this holiday season!
Legends in Concert Christmas Show
This holiday tribute show captures the sounds of the season through the vocals of some of music’s biggest stars. It’s not everyday you get to hear timeless holiday classics being sung by Nat King Cole, Dolly Parton, and Rod Stewart! You’ll laugh at comical performances by the crazy Blues Brother and be mesmerized by the swaying hips of Elvis Presley. The compilation of renditions of the greatest hits from each of these celebrities, special duets, and ballads of various Christmas classics make this holiday show truly legendary!
