What to Know about the 2022 Season

El Paso's rich history and cultural heritage are brought to life through song and dance by local performers, and with the Franklin Mountains providing a naturally beautiful backdrop, the summer production is definitely a Bucket List event for every El Pasoan.

It has undergone a few tweaks over the years including a refreshed script, so if you haven't seen it in a few years it's worth revisiting.

This year’s production will again feature Tony-Award-winning playwright Marty Martin's refreshed script and musical contributions from composer/songwriters Jim Ward and Cody Ritchey.

But while some changes have been made in the last few years, the show's popular songs and elements from its decades-long past remain in place.
