About Friends of George's Theatre Company
Friends of George’s was founded in 2010 to produce a reunion for a historic Memphis drag bar known as George’s Disco. The original George’s Disco opened in 1969 on Madison St. in midtown Memphis. It went through various incarnations before finally closing its doors in the late 1980’s
George’s Reunion, held in 2010, brought over 1200 people together to celebrate this iconic Memphis place. In doing so, its organizers decided to forge ahead to continue creating entertaining events and shows.
In the process, we have raised over $20,000 for special causes and organizations including The Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center, Friends for Life, Planned Parenthood, Theatreworks, and the Tennessee Equality Project Foundation.
We are a resident theatre company at Evergreen Theatre and we are very excited to be part of the Theatreworks family of companies supported by Arts Memphis. We continue to seek new opportunities to expand our audience, and better serve the community that supports us.
Friends of George’s is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group under IRS code. We produce social activities, promote the arts, and donate to causes & organizations that serve the LGBT community. Contributions to Friends of George’s are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
