Amanda has come to Arizona to find work to provide for her daughter.  Alas, the former society belle must take to Tombstone’s legendary Birdcage Theatre.  In order to protect her identity, Amanda disguises herself when singing, becoming known as "The Masked Canary."  However, Flora Courtland is determined to drive "the shame of Tombstone" out of town.  Our devious villain, Judge Mortimer Harshly, and his partner, Peachy Jamm, discover Amanda’s secret and decide to blackmail our heroine.  The hilarious action is set in motion when Amanda’s grown daughter arrives in town with Lonely Wolf, a Harvard-educated scout, and the manly Lt.  Pete Bogg.  A comical group of uproarious characters add to the mayhem:  Fifi, the French maid from Bisbee; Wing Tip, the Oriental philosopher; and the ever-crabby Cantankerous Ol’ Timer.
