“Dixie’s Tupperware Party,” the hilarious show starring Dixie Longate which turned Off-Broadway into Tupperware-mania and garnered the prestigious 2008 Drama Desk Award Nomination rolls into the Hobby Center for a strictly limited engagement of 16 performances beginning Tuesday, Oct. 10 to Sunday, Oct. 22.

Celebrating its 10th season, the production, written by Kris Andersson, is playing in Houston as part of a tour that has, so far, logged more than 1,100 performances worldwide.

“Dixie’s Tupperware Party” stars Dixie Longate as the fast-talking Tupperware Lady who has packed up her catalogues, and left her children in an Alabama trailer park to journey across America.

Audiences howl with laughter as Dixie throws a good ol’ fashioned tupperware party filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, FREE giveaways, audience participation and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage. Loaded with the most up-to-date products available for purchase.

The hilarious off-Broadway smash made The LA Times rave, “I was laughing too hard to breathe.” After a final meeting with her parole officer, Dixie, a mother of three from an Alabama trailer park, straightened out her life by selling the iconic plastic bowls. Her unique blend of interactive comedy, Southern storytelling and empowerment have made this show an international hit.
