Alabama Theatre: Home to Some of Myrtle Beach’s Best Entertainment
Alabama Theatre opened in bustling North Myrtle Beach in 1993. Part of the perennially popular Barefoot Landing complex, it has entertained scores of thousands of live performance lovers over its nearly 20 years in operation. Since the beginning, its anchor show has remained one of the most popular in the southern United States. And there are no signs of that changing soon.
Alabama Theatre’s success has largely hinged on the resounding popularity of ONE: The Show. It has evolved in subtle ways over the years, but its general formula has remained decidedly steadfast in its effectiveness. ONE can be described as a sort of vaudeville revue for the present day—its greatness lies in its variety. ONE takes the audience on a grand whirlwind tour of theatrical entertainment, from country to gospel to Broadway to rock and popular music, with riotous family-themed comedy thrown in for good measure. Acclaimed jokester-in-residence Grant Turner takes on the persona of wacky character Ricky Mokel and regularly puts three generations of families in hysterics.
ONE creates the glamorous, high-intensity feel of the best Las Vegas or Atlantic City shows at a far more reasonable price: between $34.95 and $45.95 for adults. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, up to two children aged 16 and under are free per purchase of an adult ticket, making a family trip to the Alabama Theatre an excellent value.
In addition to its flagship show, the Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach serves as a wonderful one-off music concert venue. Legendary country artists from Kenny Rogers to Randy Travis will appear during the summer, as will the Temptations, the Four Tops and comedians like James Gregory, known as the “Funniest Man in America.”
When cooler weather begins to descend on Myrtle Beach, the Alabama Theatre cast switches gears somewhat, preparing and putting on a holiday revue known as “The South’s Grandest Christmas Show.” Presenting something a little different every year, the Alabama Theatre’s Christmas show always delights audiences with holiday music, costumes, special effects and, of course, the comic antics of Grant Turner’s alter-ego Ricky Mokel.
