Hildegarde is desperately trying to attract a date for the school dance. She wins the school debate with an impassioned plea against drinking, but instead of dazzling some handsome senior with her brilliance, she merely convinces everyone her father must be a drunkard. Hildegarde turns to her mother for help and her mother picks Freddie, the one boy in school who wears funny clothes. Hildegarde pleads to break the date but Father is still mad. Because of Hildegarde's debate, his job at the bank is threatened, and Freddie is the only son of the boss! In a whirlwind finish, a happy solution is reached.

- "Even though the play was written many years ago, the themes are very relevant even today. The performers had many great discussions during rehearsals about content and historical items but more importantly about the themes within the play. The play was easy to produce from a set and props perspective. Audiences and cast members enjoyed the humor that grew from the dialogue and situations in the play."
