We weren't sure what to expect at this theater as we decided to see a show just because we were spending the weekend in Elkins. Next visit, this will be the destination point around which we will plan our weekend. The performers were very talented musicians and vocalists. The jokes were corny but the entertainment was lively, clean and enjoyable... More

We decided, at the last minute, to drive to Elkins during our stay at Canaan Valley Resort and catch a Wednesday evening show. Seeing that reviews were all over the place, we decided to go in with no expectations. First, we are 50 and were the youngest in the audience by at least 20 years. We were seating among a... More

As a season ticket holder I will address a couple of comments make about the American Mountain Theater. It seems that on critical comment was made about the fact that the members of the cast perform other duties which is true. I actually see this as an advantage because they do understand the entire operation of the theater. Also I... More

You will "see" Johnny Cash, The Beach Boys, and Patsy Cline. The band was also superb with a... More

I have heard great things about this theater in the past, but I was disappointed. The key-player..Kenny Sexton (also owner of the theater) called out the 16 year old lights and sound tech in the middle of the show. I did not find this professional by any means. It was a distraction to the show and ruined part of the... More

The cast is very talented. Kenny Sexton, the leader of the troupe and owner of the company, serves as the MC and is very talented as a vocalist and... More
