The dress guidelines outlined here are strongly enforced to ensure that everyone in the ensemble is dressed professionally for performances. If in doubt as to what to wear, you should stay as conservative as possible; use common sense here.


  • Black or dark gray suit
  • Pressed white dress shirt
  • Long black tie
  • Black socks and black dress shoes (no cowboy or combat boots)


  • Plain black, floor to mid-calf length gown with long or 3/4 sleeves
    Long or mid-calf black skirt, or black dress slacks, with a black top having long or 3/4 sleeves. If you wear slacks, they must be wide, loose, and flowing – nothing tight, and no jeans
  • Black or neutral hose and black dress shoes. No open-toed shoes or sandals
  • No excessive jewelry. No sequins or sparkles. Hair accessories must be black, silver, or gold
  • A basic rule for the women is that we should not be able to see your toes, knees, or elbows
