Welcome To The Legends of Texas

"Western Entertainment For Hire"
"Legends" was founded in 1981 in Fort Worth, Texas with the goal of preserving the rich Western heritage which Texas and surrounding states have inherited from the hard work and determination of our forefathers.

The Legends of Texas is an organization dedicated to the conservation and preservation of that portion of American History between 1835 and early 1900's - the true western days of our country.

SELECT ONLY PROFESSIONAL ACTORS - ENTERTAINERS FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT WESTERN GUNFIGHTS AND COMEDY SKITS

A wide selection of themes that will engage and entertain all ages. Gunfights or skits can be personalized to fit your event or organization! Crowd pleasing slapstick humor, blazing guns, bank robberies, or blowing up the "Outhouse" each skit involves the audience and we use blanks so we can re-use the bad guys!

MEET AND GREET
Hire any number of characters to mix and mingle at your next event or party. Great for organization parties, getting added attention at your retail business, or any gathering wishing to add an "old west" flair. Add a skit or gunfight to complete the package!

JAIL AND BAIL
Ideal for an organization fund raiser! Warrants are issued for your "culprit", then the Marshall serves the warrant and locks 'em up. Bail is determined by The Judge and must be paid to secure release. A "fun" way to raise money for your cause or just another way to entertain your event guests!

MELODRAMAS
The Villain, A Damsel in distress, and The Good Guy! Full length, nonstop action with audience involvement and popcorn! Include an intermission with an old time magic show the options are endless! We bring the background set or use your location. Melodrama may be a one day event or an extended engagement.

COWBOY CAMP
We bring an histrically correct "trail drivers" camp to your event. Our characters provide presentations to the guests and demonstrate the use of actual historical artifacts. This type of entertainment venue is ideal for any type of festival or event where learning and history is teamed up with fun... to boot!

As an historical group, each member of the Legends has an assumed character from history. Some of these identities include: a Country Doctor, Bounty Hunter, Saloon Keeper, Texas Ranger, Town Marshal, Preacher, Drover, Cattle Rustler, Outlaws, Traveling Photographer, Town Folks ( men & women), Saloon Girls, Madams, Soiled Dove, and Saloon Entertainers.
You may recognize familiar old west individuals such as: Sam Houston, Jim Bowie, William Travis, Quanah or Cynthia Anne Parker, Bat Masterson, Fort Worth locals Jim Courtwright and Luke Short, Billy the Kid, or Wild Bill Hickok.

Celebrities Acts and "characters" include: Bandit Queen Belle Starr & Lillie Langtry, Dr. Featherflower's Elixir and Magic Show, Judge Roy Bean, Gertrude and Baby Dumplin, John Wayne, and many others.

Members have done extensive research on the details of the lives and day-to-day activities of these personalities, and are able to give a most interesting and informative "living history" lesson on their individual character.

Some of the characters bring actual historical artifacts and memorabilia to provide a "show and tell" environment to the event
