The Cast and Crew of TEXAS Musical is presenting a special Memorial Day Tribute at the Pioneer Amphitheatre in Palo Duro Canyon.
The evening ceremony will start at 9pm, Monday May 27th. The State Park will extend its hours of operation and normal park entry fees apply. The performance is free of charge and is a gift to the community from TEXAS, Wells Fargo, KGNC AM & FM and The Eagle.
The patriotic program honoring our fallen heroes will include singers and dancers from the 2013 cast of TEXAS, The Dancing Waters of TEXAS and an extended Fireworks Display. Featured speakers include Dr. J. Patrick Oâ€™ Brien and Captain Charles Starnes.
The program has been a dream of TEXAS Artistic Director, David Yirak for years. â€śI just thought that we have so much to be thankful for as these men and women gave so much so we could be free; it was time we showed our appreciationâ€ť. Says Yirak.
Yirak, along with his Directorial and Production Staff designed and staged last years â€śGrand Finaleâ€ť that followed TEXAS every night. It too had a patriotic flavor and honored the â€ścommon manâ€ť and home town heroes. It received rave reviews from fans.
TEXAS 48th season opens June 1st and runs through Aug 17. Tickets are available at 806 655 2181, www . texas-show . com or at the office on the Square in Canyon.
