Storyline

There is a play in the upcoming town pageant, and Clara has the lead part as Lady Mayberry. Two weeks before opening, Clara is called out of town and can't play the part. Aunt Bea "hints" that she can do it and is encouraged to do so. She is accepted for the part by Mr. Masters, the director. At her first rehearsal, we discover that Bea is terrible as an actress, and Andy accepts the task of telling her she is out. While he is stumbling around trying to figure out how to break the news, Clara returns, and recites the soliloquy beautifully in front of all. Bea realizes the right thing to do, and gives the part back to Clara. Written by Don Payette
