The Texas Amphitheater is the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in the state of Texas. It opened in 1989, built as the perfect home for The Promise in Glen Rose.
The $8.5 million venue, which is now available for outside rentals, has 3,250 fixed seats and the capacity to seat a total of 5,000, including its bleachers and lawn.
The Promise is the only outdoor production with a moat: a 45,000 gallon waterway, running the length of the structure and separating the stage from the seating area. The Texas Amphitheater stage has 40 ft. walls and arches that tower above a 4,000 sq. ft. tri-level stage. It is also the only outdoor theater in the nation with a rain curtain.
The venue consists of a 15,000+ watt sound system! Not to be out-shown, the lighting system boasts over 850 individual instruments and more than two dozen special effect lights, fog machines, follow spots, winches, etc. (for you techies)!
