Nominated for a 2008 Drama Desk Award, Dixie's Tupperware Party stars sassy Southerner Dixie Longate a fast-talking Tupperware Lady who packed up her catalogues and left her three children in an Alabama trailer park to journey across the country and sell her fantastic plastic products. She 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, Longate will share how she became the number one Tupperware seller in the world, as she educates her guests on the many “alternative” uses she has discovered for her plastic products.
As a special promotion, every ticket holder to each of the Palace’s six performances will enjoy a bit of Dixie’s “southern hospitality” and receive a complimentary cocktail loaded with something sweet-and-sassy to ward off the January chill.
Directed by Patrick Richwood, Dixie's Tupperware Party features costumes designed by Longate and lighting designed by Richard Winkler.
Tickets are $40: 203-346-2000; www.palacetheaterct.org; Box Office, 100 East Main St., Waterbury.
