With such a diverse taste in entertainment, I have put together what I think are some of the best options for an evening out on the town with cultural arts in mind.
Shows and Theatres
With one of the longest running and most popular variety shows, Alabama Theatre’s “One” show features country, bluegrass, Broadway, gospel, comedy, and much more variety than you could ever imagine. Located in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, other big names such as the Oak Ridge Boys and the country music band Alabama have also played this venue.
The Palace Theatre
New for this season, The Palace Theatre is featuring a Carnival of Magic show, with wonders beyond you and your family’s wildest dreams. For the more Broadway oriented tastes, the production of Jersey Nights featuring the music of The Four Seasons is sure to ignite those memories of the golden years’ past and present. Be sure to catch a wonderful evening of dining at Broadway at the Beach, adjacent to this magnificent venue.
The Carolina Opry
This 2,200 seat theatre is home to “Good Vibrations” and “Thunder and Light,” two of the beaches most popular dance and light shows of all time. Situated beside some of the most prestigious zip codes in all of Myrtle Beach, this location offers a very convenient and always sure to please night out.
Coastal Youth Ballet
This local ballet exclusively features younger dancers from the area with the occasional professional dancer from near or far. In June of 2015 plan on seeing their Spring Festival of Dance, and yearly they feature a phenomenal production of The Nutcracker at venues such as The Palace Theatre.
Theatre of the Republic
This Conway, South Carolina based community theatre is just a short drive from Myrtle Beach with absolutely outstanding execution of performance. The longest running community theatre in the area, expect to see patrons in higher class wardrobe and fine dining located just across the street on show nights. Their 2015 production include hits such as RENT, Smokey Joe’s Café, Gypsy, and Extremities!
