Did the gaffer-grabtab thing underneath them, straight on to the stage and just hit the mutes when scenery was being moved (oh and put a white gaffer horseshoe shaped marking around them to improve their chances of not being trampled).

If you didn't have much GBF with one mic, how could you have more with three? Potential Acoustic Gain drops by half for each doubling of the number of microphones. You should lose about 5dB gain with three mics.
Could it be that with more mics the average distance from a microphone to someone speaking was reduced and therefore, on average, you got more output?

The general opinion of many experienced members (and my own) is that hanging mics are next to useless for the majority of PA use, just like most shotgun/rifle attempts to pick up the chorusses of am dram groups.
The more popular (and successful) pickup mics used tend to be boundary mics of the plate mic type - eg the Crown PCC160 or similar.
And don't forget that the MOST important aspect of any chorus pickup (or even principals in may cases) is to get the beggars to actually project when singing!
With you there mate, once had a teacher who'd turned up with his choir and gave my noise boy a hard time because he couldn't hear them at the back of the audotorium. I had to tell him, that I couldn't hear them either, and I was in prompt corner!
