DIXIE’S TUPPERWARE PARTY | May 11, 2022 – May 28, 2022
SO NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S TUPPERWARE PARTY
Written by Kris Andersson, the production is returning to Pittsburgh after its popular run in 2014.
Dixie Longate is the outrageous performer who has played over 1,700 performances of the show worldwide and has been the #1 personal seller of Tupperware in the U.S. & Canada. Kris Andersson (playwright) is a Los Angeles-based writer who debuted DIXIE’S TUPPERWARE PARTY at the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival. Following that run, he created the Off-Broadway version of the show at Ars Nova. The show received the 2007/08 Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. He has also written the sequel “Dixie’s Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull (And 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday).” Produced by Down South LLC and directed by Patrick Richwood, DIXIE’S TUPPERWARE PARTY features costumes designed by Miss Longate and lighting designed by Richard Winkler.
PUFFS | June 10, 2022 – July 31, 2022
SEVEN INCREASINGLY EVENTFUL YEARS AT A CERTAIN SCHOOL OF MAGIC AND MAGIC
A boy wizard once went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs… who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.'” This clever and inventive play gives audiences a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three potential heroes, trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. [They] ” are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be.
