I spend my free time at a local theatre. It is an all volunteer playhouse. That means all of the stagehands, directors, actors, ushers, in addition to choreographers are there, absolutely working legitimately diligently, for free. The money raised by ticket sales pay for the productions themselves, and the upkeep in addition to maintenance of the theatre bricks and mortar. That budget includes the Heating in addition to A/C systems. The main theater seating holds about 250 people. The small “black square” theatre holds about 150 people. So at any given play, the 400 customers plus the 100 to 200 people responsible for each play, adds up to be 500 to 600 people in the playhouse who need to be heated up or cooled off, depending on what it is like outside. One night, during the break between acts, I was back period – preparing for my fourth act entrance – in addition to I felt and listened the a/c shut off. At first I thought it was just cycling through, but after about 9 or 10 minutes on stage, under those warm period lights in addition to inside a heavy period-particular outfit, I realized the Heating in addition to A/C was not in no way shape or form working officially, if at all. As I began to perspire, I noticed people in the audience fanning themselves with their playbills. It was legitimately 75 degrees outside in addition to the theatre was at least 78 or 80 degrees. We toughed it out through the fourth act, trying to ignore our comfort in addition to overwhelmingly uncomfortable audience members. Some watchers in the seats were removing sweaters and jackets and ties as the auditorium grew warmer in addition to warmer; We couldn’t cancel, though, because, “the show must go on!” As soon as the curtain closed, the play producer pranced out onto the period to thank the customers for their patience in addition to understanding, meanwhile, the building manager was opening the doors in addition to the producer was phoning the closest Heating in addition to A/C repair service. After all, we had four more weeks to put on this particular production and neither the audience nor the actors would put up with having no functioning HVAC.
