Theatre major Tobin Griffin's Top 5 Hats to NOT wear to 'Important Hats'

To prepare for Theatre Wesleyan's production of Nick Jones' zany high fashion sci-fi comedy, opening at Theatre Wesleyan on Feb. 15, theatre major Tobin Griffin has created a Top 5 list for audience members.  Here are Tobin Griffin's "Top 5 Hats That Audience Members Should NOT Wear to Important Hats."

5. A Fedora

Unless you're in a full suit and somehow in a theatre of the 1940s, this hat is probably just gonna look out of place in any place.

4. A Fez

Don't wear a fez... we will assume you got lost on your way to a Shriner's meeting

3. A Beret

Just because you are seeing theatre, doesn't mean you have to look like a cartoon of a fine arts student. I promise you we'll still love to hear about your directorial ambitions without that hat. 

2. A Top Hat

Not only will you block the patrons' view behind you, but a brief look back in history shows that top hats have bad luck in American theatres.

1. Any Hat Made of Lead

Don't ask me why I have to say this, but I do. Just know it's a bad idea.

Hats will be directed by Bryan Stevenson, theatre department chair, and will open on Thursday, Feb. 15, for a limited run of seven performances through Sunday, Feb. 25.

Performances will be held Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and there will be one matinee at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25.

For more information about the show, and to purchase tickets, please visit Theatre Wesleyan website.
