Even when I was growing up in NM, I heard about the musical that took place each summer in Canyon, TX, titled TEXAS! It was supposed to be a really fun, outdoor experience. As someone who loves musicals, this has always appealed to me. Yet, I have never gone and not taken my girls yet!
Taking place in the lovely Palo Duro Canyon, this is a singing, dancing, theatrical production of the history of the settlers in the Panhandle of Texas. While it is fictional, it is based on the history of the folks of the area. With all styles of dance and music, costumes, and fireworks, there is something for everyone.
Taking place in an outdoor ampitheater, it features the history of the 1800s in the Texas Panhandle. It was written by Paul Green, a playwright who was brought to the area to interest him in writing it. He became interested and went right to work. The production he began in 1960 is still going strong today.
One of these days, we are going to take a trip to western Texas and the Palo Duro Canyon area so that we can view this wonderful history production with all the theatricals my girls would love.
