When ultra-feminist Professor Muriel Wiggins connives with the senior class girls to rehearse a musical version of "Little Women" (with a 5-1 ratio of female to male roles) for Graduation Weekend at Cranfield Conservatory for the Performing Arts, she is unaware that ultra-chauvinist Professor Horace Treacher is likewise conniving with the senior class boys to do a musical version of "Helen of Troy" (with a 10-1 ratio of male to female roles) for the same weekend! When they discover that their shows are slated for the same slot, they can do nothing but perform "Little Women of Troy!"
