“"Texas!" Show”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

The show "Texas!" was amazing. I toured with a group and the staff of the park were very polite and accommodating. We did the Chuck Wagon Diner and the backstage tour along with the show. I highly advise getting your tickets for the top of the theater because you are able to see everything going on in the show. The backstage tour was very interesting and we learned a lot about the special effects of the show. I plan on returning to see this show many times in my life.

“Pioneer Amphitheatre”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

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, amphitheatre opens at 7:30 show starts at 8:30pm. This show is for all ages best seats are in center section about mid way up. You get a full view. The people who answer the phone are very helpful. There is also a small store near the performance area in the state park where you can also get food, gifts, etc if you would rather do that. The performance also offers backstage opportunities to see all the costumes and behind the scenes props.

“Texas Musical”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

“Excellent outside play”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

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 showing for the season, but we got lucky and the night was perfect. The play was great with live horses and the use of the canyon as a backdrop. It was well put together and the end of it was the best with the singing and the fireworks intermingled into the production. If you have not seen this play yet it is a definite MUST see!
The only thing I would say is if you decide to go at the very end of the season, eat before you go because they run out of everything at the concessions because they are trying to get rid of their inventory other than that it was awesome.
