Dress Code

STUDENT BOARD ADDRESSES DRESS CODE

The following is a statement created by the student members of the Florida State Thespian Board and approved by the Board as a whole:

 

STATE DRESS CODE FOR EVENING PERFORMANCES

We come to State because we love theatre.  We come to enjoy the entertainment, but it is important for us to remember that we have come to watch the show and NOT be the show.  To make sure that the attention is solely on the performers, where it should be, we are instating a new dress code.  As always your school dress code applies.  If your attire is not deemed reasonable for a theatre performance you may be asked to leave the theatre.  You will not be readmitted until you change into something more appropriate.

These are a few guidelines that we ask you follow.  This includes but is not limited to:

BOYS:
Slacks or nice jeans, Button up or Polo shirt, Belt, Tie (recommended) and closed toe shoes

GIRLS:
Dress, skirt, nice top, slacks, and dress shoes
NO navel, cleavage and excessive exposure of skin whether it be legs, backs, shoulders, etc. is allowed

Florida State Thespians does not allow theme or costume nights at the festival.

The dress code during the DAY remains casual as you will want to dress for success in the workshops and Individual Events.

Be reasonable!  Support your art the best possible way by simply respecting it.

Thank you
The Student Reps
