Robbin' Hood of the Old West, an awful Western adaptation of the Robin Hood story, is coming to a conclusion. The supremely untalented leading lady, Jessica Cranshaw, is a triple threat. She can't sing, act, or dance. She can't even remember when to say her lines. Much to everyone's relief, she's murdered during her opening night curtain call. The entire company falls under suspicion and Lt. Frank Cioffi of the Boston Police Department is called in to solve the homicide. Thinking the person responsible is still in the building, he sequesters them. A theatre fan and amateur actor, Cioffi becomes more concerned with saving the show than solving the case. He even falls for Cranshaw's understudy, Niki Harris, who also happens to be a suspect. Can he solve the case, save the show, and get the girl before the curtain rises without getting offed himself?
