Not knowing what to expect, we were awe struck by the production, sets, and abundance of talent. This was professional and world class with plenty of action, set changes and the audio was good enough to hear even with some physical impairment. The natural canyon amphitheater is stunning with lighting enhancing the desert colors even at night. The audience was... More

Excited to see this historical musical production wrapped around the history of Texas. It is well done and set in a beautiful locale. Having said that, 1 big problem - it is way too long, especially for children. The production could easily be 45 minutes shorter. They pause about 3 times just to salute veterans. As a native Texan and... More

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
