DIXIE LONGATE in “A TUPPERWARE PARTY WITH DIXIE LONGATE”
Saturday, February 22, 2020 7pm
Dixie Longate is the fast-talking, gum chewing, ginger-haired Alabama gal who is bringing your grandma’s Tupperware party into the 21st century. After a critically acclaimed run off-Broadway in 2007, she packed up her catalogs and hit the road, playing arts centers all over the US, Canada, London, Australia and Scotland. Dixie’s Tupperware Party has become one of the longest-running off-Broadway tours in history.
Audiences howl with laughter as Dixie demonstrates the many alternative uses for the iconic plastic kitchen staple. Filled with outrageously funny tales, heart felt accounts, audience participation and a little bit of empowerment and homespun wisdom, Dixie will leave your heart a little bigger and your food a little fresher

GET TO KNOW THE ARTIST
Hey hookers, I’m Dixie Longate, America’s favorite Tupperware lady. I come from Mobile, Alabama, but I moved my trailer with my kids to Los Angeles as part of the conditions of my parole. I started selling the fantastic Plastic crap in 2001 and I have never had so much fun drinking for free in my life. Within a year, I was one of the top sellers in the nation because, well, me and some plastic bowls, and a bunch of drunk women somehow equals lots of sales.
I have 3 kids; Wynona, Dwayne, and Absorbine, Jr. and 3 ex-husbands. All of ’em have somehow died, but I ain’t crying about it. I’m way too busy traveling all over the place bringing creative food storage solutions to your town.
My Tupperware party caught the eye of some New York Theatre producers and in 2007, I had a big opening in my own show, “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” off-Broadway and got a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. I know, shut up, right! Now over 7 and a half years and 1000 performances later, I’ve shown my bowls in 5 countries since the tour started in 2008 but I haven’t stopped there. I’ve also written and performed three other solo stand-up shows – ‘Broken Shit and Baby Jesus’, ‘No Instructions’, and ‘My Bags Went Where’. ‘Bags’ was featured as part of the 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
My most recent solo theatrical show, ‘Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding A Mechanical Bull and 16 Other Things I Learned While I was Drinking Last Thursday’ celebrated sold out houses at Denver Center for the Performing Arts in 2014 and is also now touring the world.
