Des Moines Performing Arts announces ‘Dixie’s Happy Hour’

Comedy favorite returns with a special virtual performance

DES MOINES — Des Moines Performing Arts announced a new virtual performance from one of the Prairie Meadow’s Temple Comedy Series favorite performers, Dixie Longate. Known for her one-woman shows, including the international smash hit “Dixie’s Tupperware Party” and the inspiring “Dixie’s: Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull (and 16 other things I learned while I was drinking last Thursday),” Dixie has returned with “Dixie’s Happy Hour” a new show for these unpredictable times.

Spend 90 minutes enjoying a cocktail with Dixie as she mixes drinks and shares stories that prove happiness is not only found at the bottom of a margarita glass. This uplifting story challenges audiences to search for their personal happy hours by looking for the good in even the most complicated situations.

“Dixie has a special relationship with Des Moines and DMPA,” Eric Olmscheid, Director of Programming & Education for DMPA, said. “DMPA was the first major presenter to host Dixie’s Tupperware Party nearly 13 years ago, and we are delighted to bring her back to our audiences virtually with Dixie’s Happy Hour.”

Event Details: Tickets available at DMPA.org for $35. There is only one ticket required per household per performance. Streaming March 4 through March 7 (times vary).
