One year, here in Phoenix, someone set off a firecracker during the drama. They lights were turned down except for on the stage and in the hallways, so it really lit the place up. The firecracker caused an older sister to have a heart attack, and I remember the men pushing her down the hallway on a stretcher. After that, they never turned the lights down for the drama.
Another year, we had a bomb scare during the drama (in Tucson) and they filed everyone out of the convention center. The police or whoever scoured the place for over three hours. We went to a restaurant and drank margaritas. When we got back, we found out that all of the "spiritual" people had gone into another building and sang kingdom melodies acapella and told upbuilding experiences. I was so glad I had chosen the margaritas. Then, they asked by a round of applause, if it would be ok to go ahead and do the rest of the program in its entirety. Keep in mind - three and a half hour delay, and on Sunday, and in Tucson (most of us had to drive 2 hours back to Phoenix). My wife and I got up and left after the applause!
