"Billie and her three-generation mouse family live under the theater, so she can watch plays from under the seat. She has a Hamlet costume and a sword and has memorized the lines of the play. Besides the mouse family, the other important character is Jamie, Billie's human friend, who can shrink herself down to mouse size and also watch the plays from under the seat. Then comes the day when the play might be canceled because the actor who performs Hamlet is sick. Jamie grows back to full size and speaks to the director. Jamie insists that Billie can do it. Billie's chance has come and she is able to realize her dream of becoming an actor. She and Jamie remain friends for life."
