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!

Ive been coming to Texas since I was a small child in the early 80's. While the show has changed some it's mostly for the better. Love the additions of the horses and mule. Song and dance are still great. I wish they would turn...More

Play is amazing! The Texas production has been going strong for over 50 years. The young men and women work very hard. The props, music, sound effects, and the fireworks is a site to see. Very patriotic!! Highly recommend

Wow, what a show! The singing and the dancing were great, the canyon backdrop was breathtaking, and the fireworks/water show at the end was awesome. Worth every penny.

Loved seeing the Canyon and the backdrop for the stage as the canyon was great. 52 year of this play. Fun evening and entertaining show. Scenery is awesome. The salute to the armed forces at the end is very well done as well. Recommend

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
