A 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 1800's. Song and dance abound – and a generous helping of good ol’ Texas humor too – with spellbinding lighting, special effects and fireworks.

The beautiful Pioneer Amphitheater carved out of and nestled into the natural basin in the majestic Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States- comes alive every summer June 1 - Mid August featuring the Official Play of Texas TEXAS Outdoor Musical!

Texas Seating is now open to 100%! We are requesting patrons wear masks when not seated and asking for social distancing in all areas.
