 American Mountain Theater to air on PBS beginning in May

4/29/2013
ELKINS, W.Va. – American Mountain Theater variety show will begin airing on West Virginia Public Broadcasting Service in May, 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.

“One problem with RFD-TV was that it is only available on a very limited basis in the state. WVPBS eliminates that problem, since the channel is available in every city and town in West Virginia,” he said.

Starting May 4, 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, www.americanmountaintheater.com or by calling the box office at 1-800-943-3670.
