On stage! *Gulp*

Hey, guys. I'm looking at doing a strip and wax job for a high school. They have a stage in their auditorium they want done as well. It's hardwood, and it's in bad shape. It's scuffed and scratched, and very dirty in general.

I haven't done a lot of this kind of stuff, so I'm a little lost. I was thinking I could scrub it with a mild detergent and reapply a protective finish. Nothing glossy, just something to improve durability and protection. The little bit of reading I've done suggests that this may not be such a good idea. It seems like you're not supposed to get the floors very wet (which makes sense. it's wood.) or apply any sort of finish.

If that's true, what the heck are you supposed to do? It's been neglected too long to just damp mop and buff out, or sweep and clean with Bona. I appreciate any and all suggestions.
