The plot

The Moss River Community Players are pretty OK settling for theatrical mediocrity, until one day they receive a stunning offer: an insanely wealthy woman is offering a ten million dollar prize for the best community theater show in North Central Minnesota. The catch? They only have two days to put it together and all heck breaks loose as the cast tries their best to present An Unspeakable Triumph of Supreme Brilliance, but with one actor deathly afraid of the stage, another trying to dominate the show and a set about to collapse, will the riches slip out of their hands before curtain call?
