Competing against the posh rival school for the honor of best reviewed show in town, the stakes are raised when Paul idly boasts that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer, a Hollywood Producer, is coming to see his show with a view to turning it into a film. The only trouble is that they haven't spoken in years. With eccentric assistant Mr. Poppy fueling his "little white lie", Maddens suddenly over-excited children desperate in their bid for fame and fortune.
