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!

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.

For years I've wanted to see the musical drama 'Texas' at Palo Duro Canyon State park. Finally saw it in August and was not disappointed. Energy, fireworks, music and drama telling the story of the Texas Panhandle. Best seats; center section, rows 12-15, any seat...More

This is a very beautiful, education, and funny show! It's amazing and definitely great for families to go, they offer a meal for an extra fee so you can get a dinner and a show. I have probably seen it 20 times and I still...More

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.

Having previously visited the canyon, but missing the musical, decided it was time for another visit. Made reservations about two months in advance, and got very good seats. Previous to the play, I enjoyed a backstage tour, and a meal, on site. The tour was...More

The show is lively, good music, great props and sets. The young cast does a great job, very lively and enthusiastic, great costumes. Hard to be disappointed with the production. I just wondered if folks from other states/countries would think the show a little "hokey"...More

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
