American Mountain Theater in Elkins will premiere its seventh season on April 5.

A new production will greet new and repeat customers alike when the cast begins on April 5, and the performances will run through the end of October. Producer and co-owner Beverly Sexton said, "Putting a new show together is more challenging and more exciting every year as we all grow and stretch our abilities, but we want to go beyond just entertaining people to fully entertaining them."

Also new for 2013, AMT will welcome Jesse Wanless to the cast. AMT owner Kenny Sexton said, "Jesse brings something unique to audiences that is heartfelt and powerful.  We are very excited to be adding her to our already outstanding cast."

Performances are every Friday and Saturday night in April, with additional dates being added throughout the season.  Visit www.americanmountaintheater.com or call the box office at 800-943-3670 for the full schedule and to purchase tickets.
