As the historic Thalian Association is about to celebrate its 225th anniversary, Ashley and her family are involved with preparations for the celebratory events. Brothers-in-law, Ray and Cameron, announce a contest for best musical. The winner will receive a large cash prize and the winning musical will be produced as a stage play by the Thalian Association and then made into a movie. With Wilmington known as Wilmywood, the Hollywood of the East, there is certain to be enough raw talent to produce the play and movie right here - downhome. But is the cash prize so tempting someone will kill for it? Meanwhile, when the historic Montjoy house comes on the market, Ashley and Jon snap it up. They will restore the former boarding house for cash-strapped actors to its Late Georgian grandeur and make it their home. But when Ashley and Jon try to evict the tenants, they find themselves embroiled in feuds involving blind ambition and desperate greed.
