A FAMILY-FRIENDLY SHOW, where fictional characters bring to life the stories, struggles and triumphs of the Texas Panhandle's early 1800 settlers on stage of the Pioneer Amphitheater; located deep in the heart of the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Song and dance abound mixed in with some good ol’ Texas humor, spellbinding lighting, special fire and water effects, and the world famous Dancing Waters of TEXAS and firework finale' make TEXAS a must see!

Texas is a very good musical about the history of the state. I would recommend that everyone watch this play at least once. There is a optional dining experience as well. Makes for a great date night!

I had never heard of this until I started researching Palo Duro canyon. So we decided to give it a try - what a surprise! The show was amazing!

This is a fantastic show. The show with the canyon backdrop is spectacular. The show as entertain enough to keep my 5 and 7 year old grandchildren captivated. The salute to the US Military was awesome.

Every year we think we might skip it. Every ear we go. 40 years or more. Every year we are so glad we went. A must see.

Play was very well done and the facilities were great. Love the outdoor amphitheatre. Chuck wagon dinner was good eating. Worth doing again.

Though it rained for the first half hour, the show continued. The rain added humor as actors are telling the story of "dry Texas"! Very talented singers and dancers. All 8 of us enjoyed and recommend to anyone traveling in the area.

Family friendly, casual. It can get cool in the evening so a sweater or shawl would be wise to carry. Avoid big hats, people will be sitting behind you and want to see the show. However, I think the 19th was their last show... More

You might be able to sit at the back of the stadium but I suggest you contact them first. I saw a wheelchair at the back of the stadium. All seats have a great view so you will still be able to see. They have a special... More
