Summary Easter parade: Don Hewes and Nadine Hale are a dancing team, but on the day before Easter she refuses to sign a new contract with him. So he takes the next dancer he meets, Hannah Brown, as a new partner. He vows to make Hannah a success before the next Easter parade. After a while Don and Hannah are so successful that Florence Ziegfeld is interested in them. With Nadine dancing for the Follies, Don declines to dance for the Ziegfeld's. Don falls in love with Hannah, but feels he has to keep it strictly business.
Meet me in St. Louis: 1903. The well-off Smith family has four beautiful daughters, including Esther and little Tootie. 17-year old Esther has fallen in love with John, the neighbor who has just moved in. He, however, barely notices her at first. The family is shocked when Mr. Smith reveals that he has been transfered to a nice position in New York, which means that the family has to leave St. Louis and the St. Louis Fair.

Summary Singin' in the rain: Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the darlings of the silent silver screen. Offscreen, Don is aided by his happy-go-lucky friend and piano accompanist, Cosmo Brown. Don tries to dodge Lina's romantic overtures. In the transition period from silent movies to talking pictures, Don happens to meet Kathy Selden while escaping from his fans and falls in love for her. The movie becomes a talking musical and Lina has a horrible voice. Cosmo and Don decides to dub her, using Kathy's voice instead. When the jealous Lina finds out, she doesn't want to share the credits with Kathy and tries to force the studio to use Kathy in the shadow to dub her in other productions. When Lina decides to talk sing to the audience, the truth arises.
The band wagon: Tony Hunter is a famous singer/dancer/movie star who is feeling washed up. But his old friends Lily and Les Martin have an idea for a funny little Broadway show and Tony agrees to do it. Things begin to get out of hand when bigshot 'artistic' director/producer/star Jeffrey Cordova joins the production. He proclaims it's a modernistic Faust and insists on hiring a prima ballerina, Gabrielle Gerard, to star opposite Tony. It's hate at first sight. Her jealous choreographer isn't helping matters. The show looks doomed, but romance, an epiphany, and a triumphant opening are waiting in the wings.
