White balance woes!

Beginner Photography Questions Forum - photo.net - photo.net
Ran into a situation on Valentine's Day and wondered if anybody had any thoughts/suggestions/tips/etc ... I was asked to shoot a luncheon fundraiser for a large non profit organization. Typical ballroom with terrible lighting. Some 300+ attending. Up on the stage they had guest speakers and live entertainment. What drove me nuts was that the crowd eating around large round tables in the ballroom were lit one way (mostly fluorescent lighting inside covered fixtures) while everyone on stage was lit with ceiling-mounted spotlights. I had no problems shooting one or the other. But when I tried to capture the wide view of the audience watching a speaker or performer, everybody sitting down looked fine but everyone on stage was a shade of orange. I'm sure this isn't a new situation for many. But it was for me. Anything that might help me next time would be appreciated!
