Mrs. Pampinelli recruits Mrs. Paula Ritter, who has never been on stage before, but was convinced that she had great talent. Paula's husband, Frederick, is not so sure about his wife's dramatic abilities after witnessing a rehearsal at their home, but the show must go on, and the performance is worse than the rehearsal!
