Staging Hope

October 28, 2019


Saint Louis Effort for AIDS (EFA) invites St. Louisans to an encore of our Staging Hope fundraiser on Monday, October 28, at the Playhouse @ Westport Plaza. Staging Hope will allow guests to be the first in St. Louis to see "Dixie's Tupperware Party" before it opens to the public.

Dixie's Tupperware Party is the story of Dixie Longate, a fast-talking Tupperware lady, who packed up her cataloges, left her children in an Alabama trailer park and took off Broadway, the UK & Australia by storm!

Guests will join Dixie as she throws a good ol'fashioned Tupperware party, filled with outrageously funny tales, heartfelt accounts, free giveaways, audience participation and the most fabulous assortment of Tupperware ever sold on a theater stage!  Loaded with the most up-to-date products available for purchase, 100% of proceeds from the tupperware sales that night will benefit the mission of EFA. 

Additionally, one hundred percent of ticket sales will be donated to EFA. This unique event is made possible by the Playhouse @ Westport Plaza, who is generously opening the final dress rehearsal in support of EFA. It will be a night of anything can happen as guests will have exclusive, early access to experience this show’s full and final dress rehearsal before opening night.

The festivities begin at 7 p.m. with a pre-show reception where guests will be treated to a pre-show cocktail menu by Pearl Vodka, Rebel Yell Whiskey Bourbon and Exotico Tequila.

At 8 p.m. guests will step inside the Playhouse @ Westport Plaza for a special performance of “Dixie's Tupperware Party” the night before the show opens for its six-week run.

After the show, guests will be treated to ice cream by Serendipity Homemade Ice Cream while they mingle with Dixie for photo opps and place their tupperware orders. 

See for yourself how Ms. Longate became a member of the illustrious "#1 Tupperware Seller in the World" club, as she educates guests on the many alternative uses she has discovered for her plastic products.

Tickets for this event are $45. This event is for ages 21 & over. Seats will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. All seats ordered together will be seated together. Click here to view the venue's seating chart.
