Recently, I got involved with the production of a play; Every one of us have been practicing and rehearsing for the longest time and I was getting our lines down perfectly, however the thing was, the last few times the two of us came for rehearsal the two of us were feeling more and more hot.
I asked the Producer what was going on with the temperature control settings, but he had to disclose that the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system at the theatre was on the fritz.
He said they were reaching out to an Heating, Ventilation and A/C supplier to repair the problem, however unluckyly, it took several days to even get a crew of Heating, Ventilation and A/C workers out to service the Heating, Ventilation and A/C system, and everybody was affected with all this brutal heat and poor air quality, and regardless, our first performance was coming up soon. Every one of us all still rehearsed and practiced the dances and everything, however it was definitely a challenge. The producer made sure there were industrial fans working to try to keep us cool, however the whole cast wondered if the two of us would have this problem while in our first proper performance. This would not be good for corporation as people wouldn’t even believe comfortable staying to watch the show. The producer assured us this wouldn’t be the case and the air conditioning system system would be working before that time. It was a close call however sure enough, on the first evening, the air conditioning system was working and the locale was truly comfortable. Every one of us had a good turnout and the people loved the performance! It truly was such a relief not to have to perform in hot conditions like the two of us had to deal with while in our rehearsals.
