Musical selections will need to be approved by Universal Orlando® Resort prior to the group’s performance. Theme park tickets are required.


Uniforms are required for every performance and subject to approval. During spring and summer months, performance groups can substitute wool uniforms with alternative uniforms, such as matching shirts with collars and matching pants. Jeans and t-shirts are not permitted.
