A summer stock theatre is plagued by a series of backstage murders and sabotage. When the latest group to play there arrives and is informed of the situation, the least talented members of the troupe, The Ritz Brothers, are promoted to headliners under the reasoning that they are the most expendable. Detective Demarest is tasked with investigating the murders, but is frequently hindered by The Ritz Brothers.

The Ritz Brothers become heroes upon their discovery of a secret room backstage that is being used as an Axis radio room. Upon this victory, The Ritz Brothers finally make headlines as a result of their own efforts.
