The Walnut Grove schoolchildren put together a stage production in which snooty Nellie Oleson (Alison Arngrim) lands the leading role. Meanwhile, another student, Ginny Clark (Rachel Lonaker), hopes to use the play to help her widow mother, Della (Kay Peters), a faded debutante, get back into the higher rungs of Walnut Grove society -- and by extension, to land a new husband. A crisis arises when Ginny sells her beautiful long hair so that she can afford to buy Della a new dress -- whereupon Della jumps to the conclusion that her daughter has stolen the money.
