In this short subject the employees of the Homey Foamy Washing Machine factory decide to put on a show. It is picked up by a Broadway producer. The show moves on to Broadway, and the factory suffers the loss of key employees. The owners try to get the workers to return to their old jobs.
The assembly line workers of the Homey Foamy Washing Machine Company are putting on a Broadway styled musical revue, about which they are excited. This revue was the brainchild of Martha Stevens, the daughter of the company president, J.J. Stevens. Against his better judgment, J.J. allowed Martha to develop this pet project as she, a recent business school graduate, believes that a happy employee is a more productive employee. In leading the rehearsals, Martha has fallen in love with who is the featured performer, baritone Tom Bixby, and he with her. She brings along a friend, Broadway producer Sam Bridgefield, for advice. Sam believes the show is Broadway material. J.J. does not allow his employees to head to Broadway as having no line workers would ruin his business. In turn, the line workers quit the company permanently, which places J.J. in an even more difficult position as he would require several months to train a whole new set of employees. Martha, caught between the two, has to come up with a way to get Tom and his fellow line workers back to work while still supporting their Broadway dream.
