There is not a bad seat in this place and the people are always so friendly. In most cases you will be able to meet the entertainers after the show.... More

Attending American Music Theater's summer performance " Crooners" is an enjoyable way to spend a summer afternoon. The performance included a wide selection of songs from the 50s to 90s, including a variety of Sinatra favorites. The performers had strong beautiful voices and the band was excellent! The stage design of a nightclub was excellent & costumes were beautiful. An... More

We have been to this venue 3 times in the past year for different shows and have never been disappointed. It's a small theatre - the shows are family oriented - the casts are very professional and very talented. The theatre is very clean and the staff is extremely helpful.

Seating is comfortable and the prices for snacks and drinks are reasonable. Parking just across the street in the shopping outlet will allow you to avoid the lineup entering the actual parking area, and the theater... More

We have seen many entertainers here over the past 10 years and are lucky to live 5 minutes from here. Their original productions are very good. The house orchestra is excellent and their Christmas productions always get us in the mood.

They have a really great variety if shows that come through & it is very easy to get in & out on show nights,... More
