Just saw Billy Gardell we enjoyed the show if you get a chance to see him go you'll have fun. Amt is a nice place to see shows and concerts. Parking is very convenient and easy to get in and out with plenty of places to eat very close

We have been to the AMT a number of times now, for concerts, comedians and original shows. We love going to this theater as there are no bad seats. The only issue we have ever had would be the price of some of the tickets, but the performers set their own rates, so that is not the fault of the... More

We went to see a comedian. We have never been to the AMT before. It was a great venue to see a show. I will certainly be back. The seats are comfortable. They don't gouge you for drinks and snacks like most places do. And they didn't charge to park. They seem to have a variety of shows there.

Our first visit with friends won't be our last. They have a variety of entertainers throughout the year. The Christmas Show was lively with great talent and wonderful seasonal music; something for everyone. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Took my 90-year old grandma to see the holiday show on the last matinee show of the season. We both enjoyed it tremendously. It was more professional than I expected, and hit just about every genre of Christmas music-pop, traditional, country, sacred, and even a Disney song thrown in there. The second act was just fantastic; from the beginning with... More

AMT operates year-round, usually as a venue for one-night headliners. AMT also produces what we consider to be Broadway-quality AMT Original Shows, developed by Artistic Director, Andrea McCormick. Notable was their 2014 "Andrew Lloyd Webber: Music of the Night" and their annual Christmas shows that are fast-paced, family-friendly scripted, and meticulously executed by talented local performers and musicians.
