Aye, but c’n y’ turn on the air conditioning?
One drawback of rehearsing during summer months is the heat. As many of you know, we had a record-breaking heat wave this summer. In June. Despite the fact that the St. Thomas Anglican church hall has relatively new air conditioning (and we thank them for that), putting 30+ bodies together in a room, and then asking them to act, sing, move and dance leads to some hot days and evenings. Many times our rehearsal space was over 30 degrees when we started rehearsal and didn’t cool down much by 10:00 pm.
Heat does strange things to people. Here is some photographic evidence of what are, no doubt, early cases of heat stroke.
Did I mention we have a lot of fun though?
