A few weeks ago our school's drama club did A Doll's House. We did soundchecks as usual, everything was fine. But then, in the middle of the first act, the lead's mic stopped working. This problem could easily be fixed, normally...except the lead goes off stage about three times during the entire production. So we shrug, say "hope she can progect," and figure we can't do anything about it 'til intermission. A bit later, two more mics cut out. And then a third. Before we know it, EVERY mic has stopped working by intermission. So we all run backstage during intermission and try to figure out what's wrong...we check every connection, every battery pack, and nothing seems to be out of place. We even asked the audience for a second time to make sure their cells were off. So theoretically, everything should work but...doesn't. When the audience left (after the show was finished that night), we did another soundcheck and everything worked fine. We came to the conclusion that the Phantom of the PAC (what we call the performing arts center) wasn't pleased with us. It has worked fine ever since.
