Of course. tkinter doesn't care where the values come from, you can use 
a variable just as easily as a static string literal.

Using Python 3.2:

>>> import tkinter.messagebox
>>> import time
>>> title = "a trivial example".title()
>>> message = "It is now %s, do you know where your computer is?" % time.asctime()
>>> tkinter.messagebox.showinfo(title, message)

If that's not the sort of thing you mean, please show us what code you 
are using.
