Juliet, I think your timing estimates add up to about a 2-1/4 hour show, in other words getting out at 9:15PM. Ending at 10 would mean a three-hour program, quite a record-breaker in my experience.

But Leigh's advice ought to be safe. As to dress, this is after all a school performance, not professional theatre, and I've seen over the years a wide range of styles in the crowd, so blending in shouldn't be a worry.

On Monday the performance starts at 7pm, but on Saturday it starts at 8pm.

Good morning!

Kate, thanks for your reminder about times--very useful--

Jack, it may be a school performance but when people pay $2500 for tickets (this is a fundraiser and there is a dinner afterward) the level of dress-up is considerably higher, or at least this is what I've observed there. No one should be intimidated --this is not the court of Louis XIV--but it is fun to dress appropriately for performances and shows respect for the work involved.:D

The performance time you mentioned may be close to ideal; and indeed you may be right on the mark. They will allow another 1o minutes for the Wien award presentations on Monday. I was allowing for the general excitement and greetings afterward when suggesting times for dinner reservations.
