After spending the day in the region, this was a great way to finish the day! The physical theater is pretty big for a small-town (seats about 450) with wide and padded chairs. The gift shop in the lobby is an unimpressive and small assortment of random gifts that you can buy. There is also a concession stand if you... More

We had read about this theater a while back in a WV tourism guide and I was very curious to see them. The performance was good, and the comedy routines and banter between cast members was great. The music was more contemporary than I expected -- given the name, I expected more of a bluegrass or mountain music feel to... More

A very pleasant surprise! A little comedy and good music. A very talented young man that sang "I can only imagine" that us "goose bumps" when he sang with beautiful expression on this song. I hope that they keep this song in every concert. The show was about 2 1/2 hours and was never boring. We traveled from NJ.

Several of us had been here before and for some it was a first time experience. The show had something for everyone to enjoy and a whole lot of it! The talent level is very high and each performer has a great deal of charm and "pizazz". The show offers a variety of music, comedy, impersonations and many costume changes.... More

We where there with a tour group. The performances where wonderful this family is a very talented group of people. While there they were told that it was my 70th Birthday so they made a point of having me stand and be recognized to all those in attendance at their evening show.

Having visited several years ago for the awesome performances in the Premier 2-Hour Show, I eagerly anticipated the History of American Music Show, 3:30 matinee. Tickets were purchased as a group and I relied on second hand information for details. My initial disappointment came when the MC announced it was only an hour show! The music, of course, was supposed... More

Excellent – A must see – My wife and I visited Elkins, WV on the weekend to experience the train ride – we learned from some train passengers about the American Mountain Theater so we elected to buy tickets and attend the 7:30 pm show. It was awesome – the music, comedy, skits, and over all talent of the entire... More

This was such a wonderful deal for the price. My husband and I enjoyed the show the first night and then on are anniversary we took a train ride followed up with a very nice dinner. I would recommend this trip to anyone, and we will defiantly be back in the future.

We really enjoyed the show, great singing! The one thing we did not like was there was a lot of jokes and talking. It was a couple of times doing the show so altogether a good half hour. We would have liked all singing. We will go back to see the 3:30 show and see how that goes.
