The American Music Theater
There is more to Lancaster County than beautiful farmland, Old Order Amish and horse and buggies. There is top notch live entertainment. Right now through the first week in October, The American Music Theater, which hosts 300 live performances a year, is featuring an original show called American Icons. This fast-paced, high energy, 2 hour show pays tribute to some of America's greatest entertainers and their hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond. I found myself singing along to the songs of Frank Sinatra, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, The Four Tops, The Temptations, the king - Elvis Presley, and many more.
Come Nov 1, their ever popular Christmas show, Home For The Holidays, another AMT original production, begins. This Christmas extravaganza will certainly get you in the holiday spirit. They even say Santa Claus will visit.
Throughout the year the American Music Theater offers a variety of concerts and performances, covering all genres of music -pop, rock, country, oldies, broadway, classical, and comedy. Celebrities such as Martina McBride, Charlie Pride, Celtic Women, The Irish Tenors, The Oak Ridge Boys, the ever popular, twice a year Doo Wop Calvacade, and many more entertain and delight their audience.
Be sure to check their concert schedule when planning a trip to Lancaster County. An afternoon or evening of first - rate musical entertainment awaits you. You will not be disappointed.
