Seventy-six trombones and one drag queen peddling Tupperware lead this big parade. It’s a month of theatre outings offering up way more than the standard yawn-filled production of Our Town. Whether you’re a one-woman show kind of ‘mo or the fella who prefers the pa-rum-pum-pum-pum of a drummer boy, it’s time to get your tickets.
The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead
March 5 – April 6
Sounds like an ill-fated red carpet romp between Renée Zellweger, Eva Longoria Parker and Kathy Griffin, but it’s actually a one-woman show with seven distinctive characters. Expect more mood swings than Naomi Campbell in room full of inept assistants.
Tickets: $16 – $53
Dallas Theater Center
3636 Turtle Creek Boulevard, Dallas
Out of the Loop Festival
March 6 – 16
There’s plenty to see during this annual theatre potpourri, but our money is on Dixie’s Tupperware Party. She can teach you how to keep that martini sealed airtight for travel so not a single drop gets wasted. Bring your pocketbooks to purchase the goods and be prepared for some audience interaction (a.k.a. that drag queen is gonna read you, write you and erase you in front of a live studio audience).
Tickets: $5 – $15 individual; $50 festival pass

Simply Ballroom Review with Debbie Reynolds
Monday, March 17, 7:30 p.m.
Let’s get ready to rumba. Gay icon Debbie Reynolds leads this music and dance review along with some of the American Idol finalists (at least, the one’s who aren’t on Celebrity Rehab). Come for diva, stay for those tight dance pants. Grrr.
Tickets: $35 – $85
Meyerson Symphony center
2301 Flora Street, Dallas
Saturday, March 29, 8:00 p.m.
Tuba or not tuba – that is the question. (Actually that’s just the pun we couldn’t resist.) Think marching band meets Broadway for this unique stage show. And yes, there will be twirling, hours and hours of flag and baton twirling. Our wrists ache just thinking about it.
Tickets: $37 – $75
Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts
2351 Performance Drive, Richardson
