Today in Texas History – June 17

From the Annals of Song and Dance – In 1965, the Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation opened the show “Thundering Sounds of the West” in an outdoor amphitheater in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The show ran until September 6, 1965. The success of the show led to the first annual presentation of the musical Texas in 1966.  Texas has been performed annually ever since in the Pioneer Amphitheatre.   The show runs from the first weekend in June until mid-August  every summer.
