Dixie Longate Returns To Starlight Indoors!

Dixie's Tupperware Party, the hilarious and heartfelt show starring the fast- talking, gum-chewing, ginger-haired Alabama gal Dixie Longate, returns to Starlight Indoors by popular demand for the first time since 2016. Dixie herself was back in KC in early 2018 with Dixie's Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull, where she shared more of her antics with Starlight audiences.

Now, Dixie brings her finest selection of Tupperware back to Kansas City for a strictly limited engagement of 11 performances beginning Friday, January 10 as part of the 2020 Starlight Indoors Series, sponsored by the Missouri Lottery. Audiences howl with laughter as Dixie demonstrates the many alternative uses for the iconic plastic kitchen staple. Filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, audience participation and a little bit of empowerment and homespun wisdom, Dixie's Tupperware Party leaves your heart a little bigger and your food a little fresher.

"Having Dixie here is always a wild, crazy-fun time, but it's her message of encouragment and kindness that makes her special," Caroline Gibel, director of indoor programming at Starlight, said. "It's why we keep having her back."

This hysterical fan-favorite show premiered in 2004 at the New York International Fringe Festival and followed with an off-Broadway run in New York City at the Ars Nova Theatre-earning Dixie a Drama Desk nomination. Now, Dixie's Tupperware Party has been pleasing audiences for the past 11 years and has earned best-solo show awards in many of the markets she's played including Denver, Houston and Michigan.

Written by Kris Andersson, the production is playing Kansas City as part of a tour that has, so far, logged over 1,700 performances worldwide. Produced by Down South LLC and directed by Patrick Richwood, Dixie's Tupperware Party features costumes designed by Miss Longate and lighting designed by Richard Winkler.
