It had been a few years since our last visit to see this musical, and we were totally blown away by this year's performance. They've added a tribute to the military at the end of the show that was totally amazing. This musical definitely needs to be on your must do list for next summer.

My mother and I went to see this on its last day, it was awesome. We had never even known it existed until a few days before we visited. The parking was not far from where we entered. We ate the BBQ meal there, the meat was great but the sides seemed store bought. There play was entertaining. There were... More

The show was an amazing experience. 51 years of exciting family fun. The dancing personally my favorite part. Make sure you have or buy rain ponchos: it rained on us and it was the best $2.00 we spent! They perform rain or shine.

This is a great tradition for your family to visit. The show has a great story and the overall use of the canyon is amazing. This is a show for all of the sense and great for the history lover.

Having been born and raised in Texas, I never got around to seeing this show until this week. It was absolutely fantastic! Lots of color, music, history, and patriotism present! This makes me glad that I am from Texas, but everyone will enjoy it. Packed out at 1500 people, the accommodations were remarkably efficient. Lots of surprises during the show... More

The show is well worth seeing if you're a visitor to this part of the state. It's full of gushy, "love of country" skits and songs, and even includes the Indian's perspective of the takeover of their land by white settlers. And the backdrop of the Palo Duro canyon adds immensely to its visual charm. The fireworks at the finale... More

I remember seeing this show as a little girl, and took my girls to see it this year. WHAT A TREAT! Watching this outdoor musical in the amphitheater of Palo Duro Canyon is incredibly beautiful. The story tells the tale of settlers in the Panhandle 150 years ago. The updated special effects are AMAZING! During a "storm", lightning explodes and... More
