This Dixie 'chick' hawks Tupperware

DixieMixing Dixie's Tupperware Party isn't new to South Florida -- it played the Parker Playhouse just a bit over a year ago -- but Alabama native Dixie Longate didn't get to be one of America's top Tupperware salespeople by accident. She works it, people.

Dixie, whose made-up biography includes three husbands and three kiddies (the youngest being Absorbine Jr.), actually does sell the latest in burping plastic containers at her show, which is (we hear) way too bawdy for kids like Absorbine Jr. to attend.

Written and performed by Kris Andersson, Dixie's Tupperware Party plays the Abdo New River Room at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale, from Wednesday through April 18.  The performance schedule is as wild as Dixie's dress -- some matinees at 1 p.m., others at 3; evening shows at 6, 7:30 or 8:30 p.m., depending on the day.Tickets are $29 and $39.  Call 954-462-0222 or visit the Broward Center's web site for complete info.
