A summer theater plans a season far too ambitious for its capabilities – Dracula, Hamlet, and Charley’s Aunt in rep – and farce ensues.
Tempers run high as the director and actors clash with the technical crew, and the audience is treated to a disaster of an opening night. Somehow, they manage to pull things together and impress their potential donors enough to secure funding to keep the theater open another year.
Comic rehearsal and production scenes are interspersed with poignant conversations between the veteran company members, and by the end it’s clear why despite all the chaos, the rookies decide to stick around next summer.
