Texas Musical

Great amphitheater for the musical. No bad seats so no need to 'spend up' for the more expensive ones. Excellent sound system for outdoor theater.

This is an awesome setting for theatrical performances. There are several through out the year. The main one from June to mid May is "The Musical Texas" about the early settling of the Texas Panhandle. I am sure that more information an be found from Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation. This show is Tuesday thru Sunday dinner is available at 6:30pm,... More

We bought tickets for 5 adults and a 6 yr old. We sat in aisle I and aisle J right in the middle section. These were awesome seats because we were the right distance from the stage and were able to see everything. It poured rain earlier so we worried they would cancel the show and it was the last...

You must visit the amphitheater and see the play Texas! This is a must do if you are in the area. If you are not traveling this way then you need to come see the play. The nature outside canyon makes the play marvelous! The actor and actresses are students and/or adults that are very professional.

The Texas Show was awesome. I could see it 6 or 7 times more. It has so much going on in it you have to see it again and again just to see it all. I loved the finale, a must see for all.

We visited the Canyon, TX area as a group of 9 on our way back home from Philmont Scout Ranch. My Dad recommended the show, so we added it to our itenerary. We arrived at Palo Duro Canyon State Park around 6:30pm and were stopped at the gate, advised there was no park entry fee, and given directions to the... More

As a seasoned traveler, the only thing I disliked was the heat and I don't think there is anything one can do about that. I cannot offer enough praise for such a wonderful performance. And prior to the show, the country music band gave an added attraction.

If you're expecting a great broadway show, then pause before buying tickets. If you want to do something a bit different, then it's an enjoyable evening. We bought the BBQ meal - it was pretty good - but don't wait til 7:30 - there wasn't a lot of food left and they ran out of dessert. I'd buy the meal... More

We were taken to TEXAS - the musical at the Pioneer Amphitheatre by friends from Lubbock. We had no expectations except that we had been told it was an "extravaganza" style show. Our time included a backstage tour, BBQ dinner and the show. The first thing we noticed was the absolutely fabulous location - within the Palo Duro Canyon. What... More
