Bluffton University will celebrate 100 years of May Day theatrical performances with five mini-shows in one from April 30-May 2. “The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!” is an affectionate parody of musical theater greats by Eric Rockwell and Joanne Bogart. The show, which opened off-Broadway in 2003, incorporates five takes on the same basic plot — the young ingenue can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her landlord; will the handsome leading man come to her aid?

Vignettes include “Corn,” in the style of Rodgers and Hammerstein; “A Little Complex,” Stephen Sondheim; “Dear Abby,” Jerry Herman (composer of “Hello, Dolly!” and “Mame”); “Aspects of Junita,” Andrew Lloyd Webber; and “Speakeasy,” Kander and Ebb (composers of “Cabaret” and “Chicago”).
