Plot Summary: The actors hired to perform Hamlet for the Fantom Company's children charity concert have encountered an accident on the high seas. With the actors not being able to make the event on time, Fantom Hive's president, Ceil Phantomhive, must now take matters into his own hands and put on a performance worthy of the Phantomhive name. To accomplish this feat Ceil and his friends and his mansion staff take the place of the actors to salvage the concert. Among Ceil's friends that volunteer to aid in this endeavor are Undertaker, Prince Soma, Agni, Elizabeth, Griel Sutcliff, Lau, and Lan Mao, as well as all the regular characters. Although many difficulties are faced, a grand concert is performed through the efforts of Ceil and his butler, Sebastian Michaelis, because after all, "He is one hell of a butler."
