All Hail the Queen of Tupperware: Dixie Rocks Booth Playhouse Through July 19!
Dixie Longate left Mobile, Alabama, in 2001 in hopes of making a few dollars by throwing ol’ fashioned Tupperware parties. Since leaving her hometown, Dixie has partied her way to become the No. 1 Tupperware seller in the U.S. and Canada. She’s has traveled all over the country to party and educate audience members on her assortment of Tupperware. Dixie’s Tupperware Party arrived in Charlotte June 30 and will party with us until July 19! Join Dixie at Booth Playhouse at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center for a night full of outrageously funny tales, FREE giveaways, and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage! Get to know Dixie a little better in this interview with Annabelle Magazine. All Hail the Queen of Tupperware (excerpt from Annabelle Magazine)
- Q. You are, without doubt, THE Queen of Tupperware. Growing up in Mobile, Alabama, did you ever dream you’d be where you are today?
A. I pretty much had the dream that every young lady from Alabama has, to not get caught while committing a crime, and to marry someone with more than 10 teeth. Well, I’m 0 for 2, but I sure do love selling the Tupperware. It is not only fun to go to a party every night that I am working, it is also an amazing source of income and I get to be my own boss. That means I can drink as much as I want at the parties and no one will dock my pay.
- Q. Your Tupperware demonstration goes 90 minutes without a break. Where do you get your amazing stamina and even more amazing energy? And, I couldn’t help notice what great legs you have. Is there some sort of Dixie Longate Tupperware exercise program you could recommend?
A. I get energized knowing that people are pulling out their checkbooks for me. Also, a mixed drink in my tumbler never hurts at all. And thank you so much for your comments about my legs. I am lucky. I have good genes… I go to the gym too. Mostly to watch the other people there and to get dates. That is sort of my work out. I go to the gym and find someone to bring home and then we sweat to the oldies, if you know what I mean. It makes my gym membership worth the money.
- Q. I’ve debated this with my friends, but I do believe there is a direct correlation between height of hair and Tupperware sales. Can you back me up on this?
A. Well, as we say in the south, the higher the hair, the closer to God. It is really true. I do tease my hair up sometimes. And I can store extra bowl sets in there in case of an emergency. Before a big weekend of parties or before I do a bunch of parties in a row, I like to go to the auto body shop and get my hair buffed up to a high sheen. That way no one at the party gets bored. They always have a nice high pretty shiny beacon in the middle of the room to stare at. When you look at me and my hair, it is like looking at art, only I’m not under a piece of bullet-proof glass.
Dixie has less than two weeks left in Charlotte, and she would love to have you at her party!
