"That's Showbiz" begins with the opening scene of a new Broadway show. Following the opening number, the narrator takes us on the journey of how this new hit was created. We go back in time several months to the Producer's office. Madam Producer has a long resume of Broadway shows, but the last few have been flops. She has to convince her investors that she can make this new show work. She realizes that she needs to go on a serious talent search. She hits the road and takes her trusty assistant, Ms. Priss along with her.
First, they travel by train to Chicago for auditions. They find some good singers there, but no star power. Next, they are on their way to San Francisco. Madam Producer is hoping to find her stars there. However, bubbling in a little town of Happenstance, West Virginia, we meet the Happenstance Quartet, a young talented singing group who are getting ready to perform at a large county fair.
In San Francisco, we meet a great choreographer and Madam Producer finds some special dancers, but still no star. Finally, her train breaks down in the little town of Happenstance. She is sure her career as a producer has come to an end. Meanwhile, the Quartet is finishing their performance at the county fair when Madam Producer and Ms. Priss stumble upon these small town stars. The day has been saved and together, they make their way back to Broadway.
Tourists encounter the lights and energy of New York City, and we take a peek into the rehearsal process. Just before the curtain goes up, Madam Producer announces that this show is a slam dunk hit! At last the great moment of truth has arrived. Now it's music, curtain, lights and that's showbiz, folks!
