Barefoot for a Play, Performance, or Presentation?

I have heard people talk about going barefoot in a play, and have seen some people do it in a play I've been in. I'm curious about other's experiences. . I'll describe mine first: My first play was for Robin Hood, and I was a guard there. I wasn't the one who had to go barefoot, though. During rehearsals, a lot of the girls and 1 or 2 boys went barefoot just because they wanted to, and no one said otherwise. Once we had the actual performance, most of the people who were peasants decided to play their parts in bare feet. Well, that's all I really have to say. You can take the poll now.

There was one time where we had a school play with a whole lot of girls and a couple boys in it. We were given a short part of it in an assembly. Apparently, EVERYONE in the play had to go barefoot, even though none of them had any real reason to. They even left the building and boarded the bus barefoot, and only a few of them had flip-flops in their hands. Have you ever seen a performance like this?
If so, describe the play.
If one day I was required to go barefoot for my part in a play, do you have any recommendations for me? (I am usually very shy about my feet .)
