    State Fair

    Originally based on Phil Strong's novel of the same name, Rodgers and Hammerstein's State Fair was the only musical they wrote directly for feature film. In 1995, this romantic story set in America's heartland was adapted for the stage, featuring additional songs from the Rodgers and Hammerstein songbook. State Fair follows the Frake family's journey from their farm to the three-day 1946 Iowa State Fair.

    Ma and Pop are intent on winning prizes for their accomplishments in hog raising and mincemeat cooking, while their children Margy and Wayne have romantic adventures ahead of them. As Margy and Wayne find love and heartbreak on the midway, they discover what they find most important and carry home lessons on love and life that will sustain them long after the State Fair. Features an Academy Award-winning score, including the hit song, "It Might as Well Be Spring."
