Anthony directs a Little Theater production of "Mame" and is forced to deal with a temperamental ex-Broadway star, Ivy McBride, who is producing. Mary Jo plays Gooch, Carlene is in the chorus, and Julia is Mame, while Ivy is Vera. They hate each other; Ivy walks out, leaving Julia as the producer. As the strain causes her mood to degenerate, she loses it before opening night. When Ivy shows up drunk during a performance, Anthony must take desperate measures to ensure the show goes on.
