Before there was a Disney World in Orlando, Florida, there was a Tupperware Home Parties headquarters, established in 1951 by the inventor genius Earl Tupper.  Every 2.2 seconds somewhere in the world, an energetic Tupperware salesperson, man or woman, is  holding a home party.  Brownie Wise is credited with creating the concept and it has been the foundation of this fashionable plastic container and much more empire ever since.

Today Tupperware is sold in more than 100 countries around the globe and no one can be more proud of that fact than Dixie Longate, that sassy and sweet Southern gal whose life has been transformed by products that flip their lids, burp their bowls and hang on tight, going from freezer to microwave in mere seconds.

Dixie is personally inviting y'all to come and hear her spiel about her favorite plastic goodies at Waterbury's Palace Theater from Tuesday, January 15 to Sunday, January 20 for six shows, Tuesday-Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  To make it even more special, she's mixing up a batch of her own brand of "Southern hospitality," a complimentary cocktail for every ticket holder...served in a Tupperware goblet perhaps.

Your first question might be how did a six foot four Southern belle with a halo of cherry red hair join the sales force one million strong that has sales every year of $1.8 billion around the world?  This slick selling team has also helped donate over $20,000,000 to help women, children and families improve their lives.  The answer is simple for Dixie.  Her parole officer suggested it to her as an easy and legal and fun way to make a living to help her raise her three children, Wynona, Dwayne and Absorbine, Jr., in a trailer park in Mobile, Alabama.

Right now, Dixie is on the road on a national tour, peddling her party favorites, from spice container sets from $15 to round cake takers for $35, classic favorites in food storage combinations to the latest models in the current catelogue.  With her sparkle and wit, she will demonstrate and educate, share stories from her colorful past, hold contests and award prizes, and let everyone in the audience "cheer and scream" and forget their troubles and just have fun.

For tickets ($40), call the Palace Theater, 100 East Main Street, Waterbury at 203-346-2000 or online at  And don't forget to get your complimentary cocktail and remember you can buy all your Tupperware necessities right after the show from that super saleswoman Dixie herself, who is striving to be  #! at the annual Jubilee sales convention every August in Florida.

Let Dixie Longate empower you and dazzle you, in the most neighborly way, as she has done all over the United States, Canada, Scotland, England and Australia...and now right here in your own backyard of Waterbury, Connecticut.
