Raindrops Keep Falling on my Cyc

I was working backstage for a semi-professional theatre company on a production of "The Mikado".  As we don't have our own theatre, we were renting one of the local ones.  The theatre was built in the 20's, and remodeled about a year before our show.  The remodel included a lovely sky cyc, which served as the backdrop for most of the show. 


After final dress, the skies opened.  The roof leaked in one small spot....Right over the cyc, almost center stage.  Luckily, someone noticed this mid-day after the showers stopped, and placed a few fans on it to help it dry.  ...  As you know, sky cycs have to be just the right shade to pick up colored lights properly.  It didn't look too bad, unless you turned the lights on....
Unfortunately, the theatre couldn't (and still can't) afford to replace the cyc, so it's still got some lovely water marks on it.
