This fantastic piece of Memphis Theater history comes to us courtesy of veteran performer Ron Gephart. Carter played Tuptim, a young girl given as a gift to the King of Siam by the King of Burma. Those with keen eyes will note that Memphis actor/director Barry Fuller is also in the cast playing The King's secretary Phra Alack.

According to Fuller, "Dixie was glorious as Tuptim."
