The stage is set for mystery when Nancy and her friends decide to produce a 20 year old play in order to raise money for a youth center. The play is to be presented at the allegedly haunted Palace Theatre. When members of the original cast arrive in town, strange events begin to occur both onstage and off. Nancy must figure out why the actors have come together to appear in her modest production, or the drama might just end in real life tragedy.
A story told mostly in flashbacks concerns the suicide of a policewoman whose officer husband was killed in a liquor-store hold-up.
