Legends in Concert, a chain of theaters known for its tribute artist performances, announced today that it has entered a long-term partnership with Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc, to perform its live shows in Myrtle Beach. The agreement means that the attraction, which is currently located at 301 Business S.C. 17 South, Surfside Beach, will soon occupy the former Club Kryptonite building adjacent to Planet Hollywood at Broadway at the Beach.
The performer line-up for the new theater, which is scheduled to debut on March 11, 2011, will be released in the coming weeks.
Legends in Concert, owned by the Las Vegas-based entertainment production company On Stage Entertainment, first burst onto the Las Vegas stage nearly 30 years ago, and owns locations in Las Vegas, Branson, Mo., on international cruise ships, and at multiple live venues around the country.
The Surfside Beach Legends location, which took over the former Carolina Opry building nearly 15 years ago, will end its 2010 season early to allow adequate construction time for major renovations before opening at its new location.

"We love the intimacy of our new venue, and our loyal Legends fans and new guests are certain to enjoy the renovations, as well as the introduction of many exciting enhancements,” said Chris Beattie, regional general manager for Legends in Concert. “We look forward to the future in our fabulous new state-of-the-art entertainment facility. Our new location will enable our fans to enjoy a fantastic array of over 100 hotels, restaurants, shopping destinations and other entertainment attractions that will only be steps away from our front door.”
The new theater is being designed by architect Tom Miller of Miller Design Services of Myrtle Beach. The renovations will result in a classic, yet comfortable Las Vegas-style showroom which will be a uniquely-styled public assembly venue in the Myrtle Beach marketplace.
Legends in Concert's new home will boast 600 seats. Its innovative design will create an intimate concert space. Each cushy, relaxed seat will have great sight lines to the stage and generous legroom. Spectacular projection screens will be positioned around the theater. The performances will take place daily, utilizing a similar seasonal weekly schedule well-known by Grand Strand fans.
