LONE HORSEMAN, carrying the flag of the great state of
Texas appears atop a 600 foot cliff, signaling the beginning
of the most spectacular outdoor musical drama in the
world. With a burst of fireworks and a moving swell of
the music, the horseman gallops away. Suddenly, a cast
of more than 60 actors, singers and dancers takes the
stage to kick off the show that millions of fans from
all around the world have come to see. Only a state as
big as Texas could host a show as big as TEXAS!
PIONEER AMPHITHEATRE, carved out of and nestled
into a natural basin in the majestic Palo Duro Canyon-the
nation’s second largest canyon-comes alive once
again this summer with the 49th Anniversary Season of
the Official Play of the State of Texas.
IN THIS FAMILY-FRIENDLY
SHOW, set against an authentic tapestry of history, the
show’s fictional characters bring to life the stories,
struggles and triumphs of the settlers of the Texas Panhandle
in the 1800s. Song and dance abound-and a generous helping
of good ol’ Texas humor too-with spellbinding lighting, special fire and water effects, including the Dancing Waters of TEXAS! (fireworks are also included nightly when conditions allow)
OUR TEXAS HOSPITALITY! You’ll want to come early and enjoy a delicious old fashioned Chuck Wagon BBQ Dinner on our covered patio.
HOW ABOUT A BACKSATGE TOUR to get behind-the-scenes look at how the show is produced? Look for these on our website, or let our friendly customer service team arrange these for you when you call.

neighborhood, plan to stay and enjoy all we have to offer!
