Storyline

The students at Anytown, USA high school (Monogram version) are down in the dumps as; their football team faces almost certain defeat; the school paper may have to suspend publication because the circulation is so low; and the principal intends to replace student performers at the school bazaar with professionals. But with the class roster on this Monogram campus made up of Freddie Stewart, June Preisser, Ann Rooney et al, it's only a matter of about 45 more minutes before the team wins, the paper gets a large circulation boost and all hands are on stage performing with the Freddie Slack and Jan Savitt orchestras.
