The Entertainers are right there with the audience, running the show, the concessions, and greeting you as you enter and leave the theater. The place was spotless and the group was charming and engaging They were very talented, and we completely enjoyed the Christmas Venue and are planning on coming on our own (not with a bus tour) in 2017.

I really didn't have much interest in going but decided to check it out since I was going to be spending a night in Elkins. The musicians and vocalists put on a great show. Good variety and pacing, a little bit of comedy and some homespun country stories. The musicians were all exceptional.

Our family visits AMT several times per year. Each summer the Southern Gospel Concert Series are a highlight for us. We recently experienced the premier evening show with newer cast members and music director. Though the faces and voices are different, the quality of the show remains. Multi talented musicians and rising young vocalists pour their hearts into their craft.... More

The History of American Music show was better than advertised. A lot of music packed into a fast paced package. The only thing missing was the sax from the 60's Rock and Roll era.

We have been going to this Theater for years. The cast has changed and the quality is down for sure. They need to rework the show. Using most of the same old jokes for years, talent is not as good as before, Beverly is losing her voice. The loss of the Franks family is a dramatic loss. suggest they hire... More
