Kidd-Key Auditorium




Kidd-Key Auditorium is located at 400 Elm Street, Sherman, Texas, 75090. The entrance is located on the east side of the Sherman Municipal Building. Parking can be found in the north parking lot or along the streets surrounding the municipal grounds.  Wheelchair accessibility is available at the south entrance of the building.


Kidd-Key Auditorium has been a part of the Sherman community since the late 1930s, when it began as a stage for Kidd-Key Women’s College. The college closed in 1935 and a few years later, the City of Sherman purchased the current property.  In 1938, it was designated as a municipal auditorium.  Over 75 years later, it continues to be a beacon of cultural and performing arts in Sherman. The auditorium stage has seen acts like the Oak Ridge Boys, ZZ Top, Michael Martin Murphy, Ernie Hasse and Signature Sound and The Rankin Brothers, who have been voted Branson Missouri’s best performing act for the last four years. Year-round, it’s home to the Sherman Symphony Orchestra.
