I wore formal attire (slacks, sweater, wool coat, patent leather heels), because I was prepared for a traditional theater setting, but I felt way overdressed. This is a community theater with individual plastic chairs on risers and not a formal theatre. I didn't feel uncomfortable, but would have been fine in jeans and a sweater. Also, there was a slight draft or cool fan blowing throughout show, so I needed my coat. .
