This place is a definite must see if you like great music, comedy and just a fun time. We were very impressed with this show from start to finish. Don't forget to take the train ride that sits right next to the American Mountain Theater!

This cast can sing anything. Their tribute to veterans is wonderful. No one does gospel like they do! Keep up the good work!!

My family and I have been coming to the theater for the past couple of years. We had fallen in love with the energy and talent that each cast member brought to the stage. However, I was a bit hesitant in coming since there has been a big shift in the cast from the previous years. With that being said,... More

We just attended the show on Thursday, June 30, 2016. It was our 3rd time seeing the show and we were very happy with it... I'm a retired pro musician myself and although I enjoyed the show there were a couple of areas which needed improvement.. Mostly the sound system and the soundman. The mix wasn't the best I've ever... More

My daughter and I booked tickets for what was supposed to be a history of American music. There wasn't much logic to the show--it was more of just a collection of popular songs from a variety of genres. The musicians were in some cases excellent, however. There were some noticeably strong links--a phenomenal fiddler and a great lead guitarist especially--and... More

We went to Elkins for the train ride and noticed this theater across the street. It was opening day for their season so we went. It was a great performance! Elkins has really turned the town around. I was there 20 years ago and it was a dumpy almost abandoned coal mining town and now it is renovated with a... More

My wife and I have been here several times over the years, both for their holiday and regular show. This year they have revamped their cast somewhat with four new cast members, so we were curious to see how it was. The ones that left were wonderful and are missed, but the new ones breathe a lot of life and... More
