NOW SHOWING:  Dixie’s Tupperware Party… Tickets Available for the Weekend 


Dixie’s Tupperware Party  - the hilarious off-Broadway show featuring Dixie Longate, the fast-talking, gum chewing, ginger-haired Alabama gal who is bringing your grandma’s Tupperware party out of the living room and into the 21st century. Audiences howl with laughter from her outrageously funny tales, homespun wisdom, audience participation and uses for Tupperware that you never thought possible.  For anyone who has ever felt like they don’t matter, Dixie’s Tupperware Party is a southern tale of empowerment that leaves your heart a little bigger and your food a little fresher. Tickets:  www.avenelarts.com or call Box Office:  732-314-0500.
