SynopsisDown-on-her-luck cleaner Celestena and down-on-his-luck magician The Great Sponaldo dream of bettering themselves. Celestena by getting rid of her sweeping brush and Sponaldo by performing at the Royal Palace for the Queen and Prince. It seems a case of so near yet so far as Sponaldo is offered the job but on condition that he has an assistant. Auditions to find one only succeed in getting him robbed of the money that the Queen has paid him as an advance and seeing the job handed over to the dubious Stupendo the Magnificent and his highly decorative assistant, Chantalle. Can Sponaldo and Celestena win through?
