A local venture-and-a-half (despite Fred being producer, director and principal tenor all in one, and Eleanor, his wife, principal soprano, choreographer and wardrobe mistress), it could do wonders for church attendance! In the midst of first night jitters, Fred finds out that an elderly parishoner has only days to live, a gypsy couple want to be married in his church, and a school teacher is having an illicit affair with a pupil. A local Baptist pastor wants to defect to the Church in Wales, and the Earl of Duffryn stirs the community with a flourishing visit to the new church building.
