The performers were very comfortable with each other. show did not feel "scripted" but kind of sittin on the porch talking and telling stories. Gift shop was filled with one of a kind hand made items.... More

We took advantage of the dinner and music package. It was a great deal. We had such a fun evening at the theater. The performers gave an outstanding performance, with their musical talent. The comic banter, the impersonations and talent added to a fun filled night. We felt happy and were glad we went

In comparison to Gandy Dancer Theater, this show was better on all counts. First of all, the volume of the music was excellent, not too loud (as the Gandy was)..The comedy was really clever and funny, the musicians were excellent and you could understand all of the singers' words, which is a big plus!. The gospel segment was done beautifully... More

We enjoyed the show good old fashioned family entertainment. Nice variety of music with comedy mixed in. The performers are good and seem to enjoy putting on the show. I think it was an excellent value and you could take almost anyone with you and I think they would enjoy it

A wonderful show with extremely talented performers. I have been to each of their shows and they outdo themselves every year.A Christmas show is a must.You won't be disappointed and you will want to come back.

Was so very disappointed in this...the music was so loud could hardly hear any lyrics.. NOT interesting..I had two teenagers with me, and they begged to leave before intermission, but, I did not want to leave during any performance, however WE DID leave at intermission. Total waste of money and time.

The American Mountain Theatre is a awesome place to visit. We attended the 2-Hour Premiere Show and we never laughed so hard in our lives. The Show was Awesome from starts to finish. The show is a must see! We have went two times before and it has certainly became a tradition for the Benson Family.
