Can you believe that with all of the traveling I’ve done, I’ve never seen “Texas”? I’m not talking about Texas, the state. I’m talking about “Texas”, which has been hailed as the most spectacular outdoor musical drama in the world.
Performed at the Pioneer Amphitheater in the majestic Palo Duro Canyon, "Texas" depicts the trials, tribulations and triumphs of our forefathers in the Panhandle region during the 1800s. Besides learning about the history of this fascinating time and place, you’ll also be treated to singing, dancing, some of our unique brand of Texas humor, amazing special effects and the Dancing Waters of Texas! Fireworks, always a favorite of mine, provide a thrilling ending to a dazzling show. This family-friendly extravaganza, with a cast of over 60 talented actors, singers and dancers, has been performed since 1965 and returns every summer, bigger and better each year.
Buy tickets in advance on the show's website. Prices range from $9.95 to $29.95 (plus fees), varying with the seat location and date of the show. Show begins at 8:30 P.M. and last about two hours. Discounts can be found online, including this one for 20% off.
For a more immersive experience, come early for the old-fashioned Chuck Wagon BBQ. You'll enjoy a hearty meal from Big Texan Steak Ranch, which includes a fresh-from-the-grill ribeye steak, several delicious sides and fantastic desserts.
