We have driven by this many times and finally wen to the show here. The Christmas show is similar to Radio City Music Hall. The music and dancing was outstanding. It could be improved by having it all tied to a plot. Beautiful facility and service, though hard to book tickets by phone.

We live 2 hours away, but have come to five different AMT shows in this year. They have a variety of shows, frequently somewhat toward the nostalgic. The theater is comfortable and in good condition. Personnel are helpful. Pricing is reasonable and based on popularity of the particular show. Parking is available at the theater, though you have to be... More

This was our fourth show and it was the best yet - we usually come in November for the jump start to our Christmas season and it always succeeds. All involved are so talented to conceive of and produce the sets, acting skits, and costumes. This year the two-story sets are phenomenal. As said above, the balance of secular and... More

"AMT" gets a wide variety of groups. I've enjoyed country, pop, oldies, Irish and Christmas shows at this venue. The auditorium is small and definitely the way to go if one of your favorite groups comes through--I haven't been to a large stadium concert since experiencing AMT! Ushers are very helpful. Really not a bad seat in the house. The... More

We have seen every original show at AMT. They keep getting better all the time. We especially like the fact that they are featuring young teens in their shows. These kids are becoming stars themselves.

Just saw the 2014 show. One of the best Christmas shows put on by AMT. Great singers and a nice balance of secular and sacred music Orchestra was terrific. It helped lift my holiday spirits. Well done AMT!

AMT never lets you down, especially with their Christmas Show! We have been attending their Christmas shows for several years and they are always wonderful. The stained glass cross on stage with the violin solo was amazing! The Lord's Prayer was sung with much emotion and the ladies gowns were beautiful. We saw the 2014 show on Nov. 20th and... More

This was the third Christmas show I have seen at the American Music Theatre and the third show this year. Every performance has been awesome. Get there early to get a good parking spot and to visit the gift shop and concession stand.

We visited AMT to see their 2014 Christmas Show. We thought it to be very good. There was one sequence that seemed out of place but it was 2 hours of lively entertainment coupled with traditional Christmas music. Their rendition of the Lord's Prayer and O Holy Night were exceptional and very moving. We have seen at least 4 or... More

I am a decade-long follower. This show was exceptional. Excellent pacing, awesome variety, spectacular talent. Sets, lighting and costumes simply exquisite. Orchestra top-notch. If the Holiday Season has not yet visited you...visit The American Music Theatre...Bravo to all.
