Bob has been cast as the Mayor of Munchkinland in the Orson Community Theater's upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz. He has lines and everything! When Frankie learns that anyone can be in the play, she figures it's the perfect activity for Sue.
When the show's director hears Frankie sing, he convinces her to be one of the Ozians. Frankie rarely gets to do anything for herself, so she's having the time of her life in this little Emerald City adventure. She fits right in with the theater world. Sue… not so much. The director wants to give her the boot. Correction—he wants Frankie to give her the boot.
Sue takes the news of her theatrical dismissal hard, but is even more bummed to learn that Frankie is still an Ozian. She wants her mom to quit the show. That's too bad because Frankie really loves it. But with her daughter's happiness at stake, her choice is clear. She'll have to lie.
Axl has taken to snapping pennies through some holes in living room fixture to entertain himself since he's grounded from playing video games. He also passes the time by blabbing to Sue that Frankie is still in the play. This leads to a late night heart-to-heart between mother and daughter. Frankie demands that they find a place for her daughter in the play. They do. Sue works the lighting cues under the stage. You could say she's a shining star!
