A seldom-produced gem from Rodgers and Hammerstein, this sparkling musical stands out as their sole work initially crafted for film and subsequently adapted for the stage in 1992. The storyline traces the Frake family's journey from their family farm to the 1946 Iowa State Fair. Reminiscent of Thornton Wilder's masterpiece Our Town, the Tony Award-winning State Fair follows siblings Margy and Wayne coming of age on the midway, finding love, heartbreak and deeper life lessons that they will carry with them long after the fair closes.
