Does sound like fun, I hope others here go and enjoy it.

Sean, I don't think that's the case - for shows like this, jeans aren't inappropriate.

That wouldn't be the case at some of their shows at Crouse-Hinds, but the campus shows are decidedly less formal.

This is Syracuse not NYC. Jeans and a flannel shirt won't have anyone looking askance at Crouse College and even at a full blown symphony concert at the Civic Center I've been wearing black jeans and a turtleneck (no suitcoat, no suit, no tux, no tie) and was not out of place. "Black tie" events are extremely rare in Syracuse and are typically limited to big dollar charity fundraiser formal dinners.

Evening Handbags
Formal Gowns
Men's Dress Shirts
Men's Dress Shoes

dresses and skirts
1
Consider the night. A season opener might bring out gowns and tuxes, as might a performance tied to a fundraising event.

2
Attend in nice dressy casual clothes at all other times. Men will impress in slacks, a fine gauge sweater and a sports coat. Women might pair a strappy sandal with a simple black dress or match a nice skirt with a lightweight turtleneck sweater.

3
Remain in your suit if you go straight from work to the performance. Men might remove their tie. Women might switch a conservative blouse for a satin camisole or beaded shell.

4
Leave the jeans and sneakers at home. Wear a simple dress shoe. Stockings are optional, depending on the dress.

5
Dress kids in nice, clean and pressed clothes that are reserved for special occasions
