Since her early days entertaining “straight Republican white women” in Orange County living rooms, wayward Southern belle Dixie Longate — an over-the-top drag character created by writer/actor Kris Andersson — has earned comparisons to Dame Edna and emerged as an unlikely ambassador for Orlando-based Tupperware Brands Corp. Putting an unapologetically trashy spin on the Tupperware-party format, Andersson’s signature show (touring since 2008 and coming to SA as part of the Tobin Edge Series) combines comedic storytelling, a storyline about homegrown entrepreneur Brownie Wise, and actual sales of plastic food storage containers. In addition to raunchy laughs and a handy Tupperware catalog, guests can expect to be called “hooker” — which Dixie naturally considers a term of endearment. $36.50-$51.50, 7:30pm Thu, 8pm Fri, 5pm & 8pm Sat, 2pm Sun, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, tobincenter.org. — Bryan Rindfuss
