The Pioneer Amphitheatre is carved out of a natural basin in the majestic Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in America. During the summer it plays host to the spectacle that is the Official Play of the State of Texas – TEXAS!
A lone horseman, carrying the Texas state flag, appears on the 600 foot cliff, and signals the beginning of a spectacular outdoor musical drama. With a burst of fireworks and a moving swell of the music, the horseman gallops away and a company of more than 60 actors, singers and dancers takes the stage to kick off the show that millions of fans from all around the world have come to see. They say that only a state as big as Texas could host a show as big as TEXAS!
