Treat the Uniform With Respect. It will ALWAYS be worn the way it was designed to be worn in public. All buttons buttoned, zippers zipped, etc. If there is a decision to unbutton / remove a part of the uniform, you will be made aware so everyone will be uniform and look the same. That is why it is important to have the right undershirt on for any given performance day.
There are certain foods / drinks you are allowed to eat in uniform.
1. Hot Dog
7. Chex Mix
8. Gold Fish
You are NOT allowed to have: colored liquids, i.e. soda, Gatorade, Powerade, Monster, Red Bull, Tea, etc. Water only in uniform.
No condiments (Mustard, Ketchup, Mayo, etc.)
