With the help of their new friend Gooliope, Frankie and the ghouls set out to perform a big circus show to save the cancelled art programs at Monster High.
Under a big top tent, Headless Headmistress Bloodgood introduces the students to the Freak du Chic, a circus being performed by Frankie Stein, Jinafire Long, Rochelle Goyle, Honey Swamp, Toralei Stripe, and the school's newest student, Gooliope Jellington. To explain how the ghouls became circus performers, Frankie takes us back to a couple of days ago...
Bloodgood meets with Monster High's unpleasant accountant Mr. Grunderson, who informs her that the school is low on money. In order to save money, he intends to cancel the art programs. Bloodgood is aghast at the decision, but Grunderson happily tells her the Board of Deaducation have given him full authority to shut down whatever he wants, and he tells the students to pack up their things.
Meanwhile, in the Monster High storage room, a mysterious figure wonders around, fiddling with the boxes and trunks. Saddened, Frankie, Toralei, Jinafire, Rochelle, and Honey carry their boxes to the storage room, leading the mysterious figure to hide away. Toralei complains about Mr. Grunderson's decision and proclaims she wants to bring the classes back, to which Frankie suggests that they could hold a fundraiser to raise money to save the art programs, and Toralei, naturally, feels weird for agreeing with her. As they look for items which could help them, the entire room suddenly shakes, and they spot a nervous Gooliope hiding behind a pile of boxes.
Gooliope introduces herself, and spots a trunk she had been looking for, which is filled with circus props. She explains she used to be part of the travelling circus Freak du Chic before joining Monster High. Frankie gets the idea of performing their own Freak du Chic at the school, and using the ticket sales to save the art programs. Gooliope offers to help by creating all the costumes and props they'll need to host their own circus.
Later on, as she watches the ghouls struggle to practice their performances, she realizes there's still a lot of work to do...
