I am researching Tex-Ella’s Wild West Show, active c. 1910’s-40’s, wintering in Byrum, Ga. I believe they were an offshoot of the Allen Brothers Show. In addition, the Wright Comedy Players were active in the 30’s and 40’s and may have been an offshoot of Tex Ella’s. Any information is appreciated!

In the January/February 1972 issue of Bandwagon, Art Doc Miller, old time union billposter, wrote an article called “Mud Show Rambles” in which he mentions the Tex Ella Show. He refers to its playing mainly through New York and Pennsylvania. He also says the main feature was a long horn steer racing through the big top. Her paper often included the line, “See them Rope and Ride the Horses.” Doc said Ella was sort a Rose Killian type, meaning an independent old time woman show owner. I know the show was out as late as 1940. Hope this helps. Whitey
