Which of these combinations would work better for taking photos of a non-professionally lit stage (middle school) from the back of the auditorium?

1) 7D + 70-200mm F/2.8L II
2) 5D III + 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II (would have to enlarge it more in post)
3) 5D III + Extender 1.4 III + 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II

I shot it last year with a 7D and the 70-200mm F2.8 IS  (not II).  The raw shots were usable, but I want to do better. 

Would I get better shots with the 5D III and the 700-200mm F2.8 IS II and just crop/enlarge the photos?

or would the 5D III and the 700-200mm F2.8 IS II + 1.4 Extender III do better?

The 7D gives me the automatic 1.6X enlargement, but the 5D III is more light sensitive.

I thought about buying the Extender 1.4X III but is worried about the one stop less of light.
