Since her early days entertaining “straight Republican white women” in Orange County living rooms, wayward Southern belle Dixie Longate—an over-the-top drag character created by writer-actor Kris Andersson—has earned comparisons to Dame Edna and emerged as an unlikely ambassador for Orlando-based Tupperware Brands Corp.
Putting an unapologetically trashy spin on the Tupperware-party format, Andersson’s signature show combines comedic storytelling, a story line about homegrown entrepreneur Brownie Wise, and actual sales of plastic food storage containers.
In addition to raunchy laughs and a handy Tupperware catalog, guests can expect to be called “hooker”—which Dixie naturally considers a term of endearment.
Dixie’s Tupperware Party will hit the stage at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts from August 17 to 19 for four performances in the Carlos Alvarez Studio Theater.
Dixie’s Tupperware Party, Aug. 17, 7:30 p.m., Aug 18, 8:00 p.m., Aug 19, 2:00 p.m., Aug. 19, 8:00 p.m. at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624. Tickets available at this link.
