Before hitting it big, the country music band Alabama performed one of its most famous early shows at a venue in Myrtle Beach. In 1993, the band returned to the city where it got its start and opened the 2,000-seat Alabama Theatre in the Barefoot Landing shopping complex. Alabama has since retired, but the theater attracts other well-known artists, including Three Dog Night and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. 

On nights when there is not a special guest performer, the theater offers performances of ONE: The Show, a variety show that includes comedy, country, gospel and rock music, among other genres. The Alabama Theatre's Christmas show is the most popular event: It runs from early November to late December. With the exception of the Christmas show, the theatre tends to cater to older travelers. Ticket costs depend on the show, but recent visitors say the shows are worth every penny. Check the theater's specials and discounts section on its website before you go.
