One of the best things about summer in Myrtle Beach is the entertainment. Whether you buy a ticket to Legends In Concert or The Palace, you're always guaranteed a good time. But did you know that Myrtle Beach is also the place to find extraordinary free entertainment, from fireworks to magicians, to comedians and songsters?
The headquarters for free entertainment in Myrtle Beach is Broadway at the Beach where the 2015 Summer Nights Entertainment series gets underway June 1 and runs through Aug. 30.
So why not take the family to Broadway for dinner, walk off the meal with a stroll around the lake, take in a little entertainment and cap off the evening with an exciting fireworks show?
As South Carolina's largest festival entertainment complex, Broadway seems to bring more entertainment each year. Favorites return to delight new visitors, while new entertainment debuts. From free musical performances, special guests and magic shows to spectacular fireworks displays each week, there's no better place to spend a summer night.
This year's returning favorites include Maddie Hunt, a local singer-songwriter, and Bryan Dangerous, a magical guy with an interactive comedy show. Maddie will perform every Monday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Bryan takes the stage every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
New faces at Broadway this summer include Nick Pike, a juggler, comedian and unicyclist from England who was a semi-finalist on "America's Got Talent." Nick's stunt and comedy show will be amazing fans every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Also new this year is Shelley Sasser, a rockin' pop singer and rhythm guitarist from Dino Capone's School of Rock. Shelley will be performing Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Some nights your kids will have a good chance of running into royalty and super heroes. The Character Company will be bringing princesses in their royal finery on Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and super heroes on Sundays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There's no better time to chat with their favorites and take some photos. Kids can also get free face painting done every Tuesday and Friday, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Pint-sized tribute artists take the stage as superstars when the MiniStarz show runs each Saturday and Sunday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. You'll be delighted by the song stylings of mini versions of Elton John, Katy Perry, Beyonce, and the Spice Girls.
But be sure to keep an eye open for adult-size tribute artists when Legends In Concert's golf cart tour cruises around Broadway on Monday and Friday from 5 p.m. to 6 pm., and enjoy Ripley's Aquarium's percussion band, Ruckus, every Tuesday and Friday, 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Tuesdays are special nights at Broadway as fireworks light up the sky each week during the fireworks extravaganza over Lake Broadway at 10 p.m. Miss that? From June 19 through August 14, there's even a second fireworks display on Friday nights at 10 p.m., all sponsored by our friends at Helicopter Adventures.
So much fun to have all in one place. Don't miss the Summer Nights Entertainment series at Broadway at the Beach!
