Plot Summary

Helen directs the seniors in a musical revue that is censored by her old-fashioned school principal, who claims the revue is a flagrant display that highlights the problems America is facing with today's youth. Helen does not appreciate the pressure, so she makes her point by revamping the show to feature a 1920s flapper-style theme. She proves that the youth of today are no different than the youth of yesteryear.
