The last area Indian battle had been fought only 10 years before on the bluff where Memorial Auditorium now stands. Built in the late 1920's, in the early days, Will Rogers chewed gum, twirled ropes and performed on our stage along with Al Jolsen, Louis Armstrong, Elvis Presley, Duke Ellington, Ethel Barrymore, Helen Keller, Gene Autry and Bob Hope. More recently, the Judds, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, George Strait, Ricky Van Shelton and Garth Brooks have frequented our city. These current stars' double sellouts were matched by a double sellout of the national tour of the famous Broadway show Cats. Memorial Auditorium is proudly situated in a market in North Texas-Southern Oklahoma available to a population of over a quarter million people. Our attractive and comfortable auditorium serves a public within a 100-mile radius of Wichita Falls. It is our highest priority to provide both the public and visiting artists and promoters with the finest service possible. We are happy to advise interested parties in choosing the most appropriate performance dates and to assist in publicity plans, press conferences and ticket planning.
