PALO DURO CANYON -- The musical "Texas" is open for the public again, after a wreck on Monday killed five of the crew, and hospitalized another member and a truck driver.
"The mood obviously is tremendous sadness," said Kris Miller, Executive Director for Texas. "It also gives a strong desire to continue."
A desire to continue, after Monday night's wreck. But Miller says the five killed were more than just co-workers.
"I mean we live together, work together, sleep together, play together and it's tough," said Miller. "It's such a large family and they literally are like brothers and sisters."
Thursday night's show wasn't the first since the wreck, the cast put on a special closed performance Wednesday night. It's a performance they won't forget.
"It was a pretty incredible performance because it was pouring down rain the whole show," said Miller. "We even attempted to hold at one moment but the cast wouldn't let us, they wanted to do it."
After losing five close friends, some wondered if Texas could continue this year. But for this cast and crew, the show must go on.
Shows will continue until Saturday. Tickets can be bought at the amphitheater box office in Palo Duro Canyon, or by their office in the city of Canyon at 1514, 5th Avenue.
