Wilmertown Community Theatre is busy preparing its production of Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband" -- but in the tradition of community theater, problems abound from early on in the rehearsal process. With memory-challenged actors, feuds and flirtations among the cast, no budget, and a stage manager who's losing it, the backstage antics threaten to spill onto the stage as the show tumbles towards a catastrophic opening night. It will take a miracle to bring it all together. Will the show go on?
