Ukulele Gig

Should ukulele straps be worn when playing live?

I'm playing my first ukulele gig this Sunday. I play a standard size Lanikai, and I'll be standing up when I'm onstage (although I've always practiced while sitting down).

For some reason, it feels really awkward trying to play the instrument and hold it at the same time. Am I supposed to wear a strap with it? If not, how do I hold it while playing- with my elbow, or my right hand, or what?

Please help. I'm really nervous and kinda freaking out.

It might look a little more awkward with the strap. If it was a bigger size, such as a tenor or a baritone, then it would be reasonable, but a soprano i think can be sufficiently held in the hands.
