Elkins' American Mountain Theater now airing on PBS

Elkins — American Mountain Theater variety show now is airing on West Virginia Public Broadcasting Service, the show’s producers have announced.

Located in the historic rail yard in downtown Elkins and billed as the “Freshest Sound in the Mountains,” AMT presents the state’s first and only Branson-style family-friendly music, comedy and variety show.

Kenny Sexton, president and producer of AMT, said he is looking forward to sharing the show statewide.

“We’re incredibly honored and blessed to have West Virginia PBS welcoming us into their lineup,” Sexton said. “We’re excited to help West Virginians recognize what the American Mountain Theater and its talented cast offer right here in their home state.”

The statewide airing comes on the heels of a successful year-long run on nationwide RFD-TV, Sexton said. As they did on RFD-TV, AMT will produce the show in-house with assistance from the West Virginia Film Industry.

AMT will broadcast weekly 30-minute shows on WVPBS at 6:30 p.m. every Saturday.

Additional information, tickets and vacation package information are available on AMT’s website, or by calling the box office at 1-800-943-3670.
