Myrtle Beach Has Your Ticket to Legendary Holiday Shows

Experience a legendary holiday season at the Legends in Concert Theater in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where an award-winning Christmas show recreates some of the classic holiday acts and artists from the past. Guests at The Breakers Resort won't believe their eyes or their ears when some of the top tribute artists in the entertainment business perform their renditions of songs by big-name stars from the past and present.

Located at Broadway at the Beach about 2 miles from The Breakers Resort, Legends in Concert gets in the Christmas spirit during the months of November and December with tribute performances to iconic artists like Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Rod Stewart and Nat King Cole, just to name a few. All the stars come out for the grand finale, which includes the Legends in Concert house band and dancers performing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s "classic "Christmas Eve in Sarajevo," as well as traditional holiday carols like "Oh Holy Night" and "Joy To the World."

A three-time winner of TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence, the Legends in Concert Christmas show also combines elements of comedy and magic from its regular shows to the holiday song and dance lineup for an entertaining evening for the whole family. Patrons can also enjoy the comic relief of the Blues Brothers, with tribute artists playing the roles of Jake and Elwood Blues. Guests might even see some surprise appearances by the regular cast of tribute artists, such as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack, Garth Brooks, Michael Jackson, and other spot-on impersonations.

Guests at The Breakers Resort also have a broad selection of other holiday shows to see during their vacation getaway to Myrtle Beach, ranging from more traditional Christmas-themed performances to local dinner theaters that alter their usual scripts to add some holiday cheer. Here are some of the top Christmas shows on the Grand Strand where you and your family and friends can get into the holiday spirit:

* Alabama Theatre: "The South's Grandest Christmas Show" lives up to its name year after year as both locals and visitors flock to this Barefoot Landing venue to witness a holiday tradition. Featuring a talented cast of singers, dancers and performers, the show is fit for the entire family and includes a grand entrance by Santa Claus for the big finale. The beautifully decorated lobby is also a great place to take some holiday photos and meet the cast after the show.

* Pirates Voyage: Charles Dickens' classic tale "A Christmas Carol" gets a pirate-themed makeover at this Dolly Parton theater in Myrtle Beach. See Captain Scrooge discover the magic of the season amid a sea of singing, dancing and death-defying cast members who perform an array of stunts and dives on, above and below a stage surrounded by water, all accented with appearances by animals like sea lions and parrots. Running from Nov. 9 through Dec. 31, Pirates Voyage is sure to be a hit with the kids in your party.
