The Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County presents The Armorettes! This show is not a part of the 2021-22 Averitt Center season, is a rental production and is a major fundraiser for the Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County.

The Armorettes, The Infamous Camp Drag Queens of the South, have performed over 42 years and counting. We have raised over $2.3 Million in the battle against HIV/AIDS, one dollar at a time. The Armorettes' namesake comes from where our tale began, the Armory Bar in Atlanta, GA.


The original Armorettes were Thelma, Julie Garden, Justa Tish, Kitty Carlisle, Ginny Tonic and Liz Helen. These original six stepped up for the community during a very dark time in the late 70's and early 80's, when the AIDS epidemic was becoming more and more rampant and out of control. They decided enough was enough and if no one was going to help our community that they would step up and do so. So they decided to put on drag shows at the Armory in Atlanta, GA in order to raise money for their friends who were sick and dying from AIDS. Every dollar from "the bucket" was put to good use by distributing the money to those in need.

We as Armorettes will continue to raise money to fight against HIV/AIDS until a cure is found!
