Elkins' American Mountain Theater Opens 2011 Christmas Spectacular
We're going to do something a bit different tonight, a Local Event post that is NOT local to Warren County, not even local to Ohio, but when we experience a family friendly event that could use a little extra publicity, we're not going to let some measly state border get in the way!
Last night the Spear Family attended the American Mountain Theater's Christmas Spectacular opening night in Elkins West Virginia. Yes, we're out of town visiting family for Thanksgiving while Cujo and Big Al guard the homeplace (confirm this at your own risk!).
Where is Elkins West Virginia you might ask? Eastern West Virginia (we know that sounds like an oxymoron, but it is where it is!). Specifically it's at 49 Martin St, Elkins WV 26241 near the rail area.
American Mountain Theater is a new building, and specially outfitted for this family run business! Wide aisles, handicapped accessible, comfortable seats, CHEAP concessions and affordable entertainment for up to 527 visitors!
Now it's kind of hard to describe this show, not really blue grass, not really gospel, not really country, certainly not rock and roll (despite the Beatles impression!), but what it is IS a wholesome family show that you wouldn't be afraid to take your kids to or be embarrassed to be sitting next to your mom at! Self-described as Branson style family entertainment, this family performed show (and almost everyone on the stage IS related!) leaves you no doubt where their beliefs are regarding Christmas!
The Christmas Spectacular is a mix of comedy bits, serious songs, instrumentals and more. And these folks are VERY musically talented, with one of the performers using six different instruments (violin, cello, guitar, drums, keyboard and mandolin) at various times of the show.
So maybe you live close enough to see the show and want more details?
Visit their website www.AmericanMountainTheater.com for the history of the Theater. Tickets can be purchased through the website, Adult tickets $23, Seniors (55+) $21, Kids (5-11) $13 for this two hour show (15 minute intermission included). You can also call the box office at 304.630.3040 or 800.943.3670.
Shows are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday-Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sundays through December 18th. Based on the crowd last night we wouldn't recommend waiting long to get your seats reserved!
So if you're looking for a new event to make part of your holiday tradition, don't miss the performances at the American Mountain Theater in Elkins WV!
We're including one of their Youtube videos for your enjoyment!
