At the Davis School of the Theatre, ran by Jeremy Taswell (Samuel S. Hinds), where teen-age kids study drama and the serious arts, instructors Johnny Hanley (Robert Paige) and Alice Taswell (Elyse Knox) are in love. The students, including Donald (Donald O'Connor), Patricia (Gloria Jean) and Peggy (Peggy Ryan), secretly want to become singers. Patricia's aunt, Mrs. Davis (Florence Bates), owns the school and disapproves. Donald has written a musical comedy for the year's class play, which the students want to do, but Mrs. Davis has selected and insists they do Sophocles' "Antigone". Taswell agrees to let the kids do Donald's show. Donald manages to keep Mrs. Davis away on the day of the show, and when Broadway producers in attendance rave about Donald's play, she becomes a backer.
