We have been to the theater a number of times. Each year the show is new, exciting, fun, and entertaining. Visitors to Elkins shouldn't miss this gem! If possible, get a combo of the show and a train ride. Great deal.

“What a Jem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This was my first visit to the American Mountain Theater. I had heard of it before, but had no idea what a fantastic show of talent I would see at their Christmas program. It lasted almost 2 1/2 hours including a brief intermission.

This was a wonderful mixture of music (mostly gospel, bluegrass, and country), comedy (had me laughing out loud) with some religious and inspirational themes (genuine and not overdone). I was so surprised that our area had such amazing talent. For me it was just an hour drive. They offer various packages for out of town folks. I hope to get back soon for one of their regular shows, then definitely plan to return for the Christmas show next year.

“The Branson of WV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is an absolutely fabulous couple of hours. We live in Elkins and we still try to go once a year to either their Christmas or Easter show. They also have "teaching" on music through the decades as well as special Gospel Shows. It is Amerivanna at its best. If you are in the area, you won't want to miss it!
