Music: Richard Rodgers
Lyrics: Oscar Hammerstein II
Book: Tom Briggs and Louis Mattioli
Originally based on Phil Stong’s novel of the same name, Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s STATE FAIRwas 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, where lessons are learned and love and heartbreak are found on the midway. It features an Academy Award-winning score, including the hit songs ‘It Might As Well Be Spring’ and ‘It’s A Grand Night For Singing.’
