Meet Dixie Longate, the Host and Storyteller of Your Side-Splitting Evening at the Hobby Center

Hobby Center is hosting everyone's favorite Tupperware lady, Dixie Longate, for a hilarious performance of Never Wear A Tube Top While Riding A Mechanical Bull… from Saturday, December 14th to Sunday, December 22nd!

For the last 11 years, theatre-goers and critics around the globe have hailed Dixie’s Tupperware Party as a non-stop laughter hit—so, it’s no surprise that Ms. Dixie dreamed up a follow-up show that has reviewers cheering and audiences on their feet begging for more fun! Developed by Denver Center for the Performing Arts in the spring of 2014, Never Wear A Tube Top While Riding A Mechanical Bull… has hit the road.

Set in in Mobile, Alabama during a horrific hurricane of a storm, we meet Dixie, who serves as host and storyteller in this one-woman show. Put on your cowboy boots and walk into Dixie’s favorite honky tonk as she shares lessons learned after a night out. What do a jeweled crown, a cardboard cutout of Julie Andrews, and a box of moon pies have in common? Spend the night with Dixie and find out as she swaps her Tupperware bowls for a mechanical bull.

With her southern twang, Dixie's fast-paced, high pressured speech is so funny that even she gets so caught up in her excitement that she ends up garbling sentences to unrecognizable slurs, and the audience can't get enough of her. She shares bits of wisdom given to her by her mother, often with hysterical malaprops that glide by so quickly, you don't get the laugh until a few seconds later. Dixie is so well-honed of a character, she doesn't let anything get by her audience!

Tickets start at $58, which can be purchased online at www.thehobbycenter.org.
