I must admit my readers the more and more I do this the more I want to start branching out into Texas. The state that features more real country music than anywhere in the United States. I’m finding so many places and artists that just blow me away.With every passing year I plan to work less years as my health allows me to continue my other job. I am planning my older years of traveling and working on my website here, and getting to attend more of the events and places I feature on here like this one. This edition of my Local Opry series brings us to Liberty Texas where we will visit the Liberty Opry.
This facility that is located in the historic Park Theater on 1816 Sam Houston Street in Liberty Texas
seats about 450 people and has a seating chart you can view on their website by clicking on their name.
They have shows every Saturday and for even more information than I provide here you can call 1-877-729-9103. Now the ticket prices vary per show and are listed on the shows.
They offer a wide variety of family friendly shows with all gospel, country, bluegrass, country legends
and 50’s and 60’s themed shows.
This From Their Website:
The Liberty Opry originated in 1993 and is still going strong! We recognize the need for an affordable source of entertainment for families and senior citizens. Our main effort is to continually provide the best talent available on our stage for the “young” and the “not so young” to enjoy!
The Liberty Opry shows take place in the beautiful, historic Park Theater which was built in 1938 and operated as a movie theater for many years. Our theater was renovated to it’s current condition in the early 2000′s. Many of our customers share their childhood memories of attending movies at the Park Theater and cherish the fact that they can still come to the same theater for great entertainment.
We hear from our customers time and time again how “amazingly welcome” they feel at the Liberty Opry. You will feel the warm reception from the minute you walk in the door. We strive to greet you with a smile and give you friendly assistance the entire evening. It is our utmost goal to make your experience at the Liberty Opry a pleasant and memorable one. The owners of the Liberty Opry are always readily available to talk to you and you will always find them at the front door after the show to thank you for attending and to invite you to come back again.
We hope you’ll attend a show at the Liberty Opry sometime soon!
