Jackie Lang had always wanted to act, but was also too self conscious to go on stage. When Allan Brady, the new drama teacher, held auditions, she reluctantly tried out, and won the starring role. After weeks of working side by side, Jackie fell in love with Allan, but as she entered the theater on opening night, Margaret, Allan's fiance ran to them wishing them luck. Heartbroken, she sat in the dressing room and decided the show had to go on, and the heartbreak and pain gave her the energy to go on.
