The Official Play of the State of Texas returns for its 41st Anniversary Season to the Pioneer Amphitheater in beautiful Palo Duro Canyon State Park. It will run Tuesday through Sunday beginning Friday, June 5 to Saturday, August 15, 2009. 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 1800’s. Song and dance abound – and a generous helping of good ol’ Texas humor too – with spellbinding lighting, special effects and fireworks. Come early and enjoy a delicious bar-b-que dinner served on our covered patio. For more information contact the Pioneer Amphitheater Box Office at (806) 655-2181 or www.texas-show.com
