Summer Academy Musical - "State Fair"

State Fair KM Summer Academy invites you to this summer’s performance of State Fair! Featuring an Academy Award-winning score by the incomparable team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hamnerstein II (The Sound of Music, The King and I, Oklahoma!, and Cinderella), this tale of an American heartland tradition is filled with love and laughs, providing a recipe for enjoyment as wonderfully warm as homemade mincemeat pie.

State Fair tells the story of the Frake family - Ma Melissa, Pop Abel, daughter Margy, and son Wayne - as they head off to the Iowa State Fair for three days of food, ribbons, romance, and good, old fashioned competition at its best. Will Melissa’s mincemeat recipe win First Prize? Will Abel’s prize hog bring home the Blue Ribbon? Well, Margy and Wayne couldn’t care less about that - instead, they’re each looking for that special someone on the Midway. And, in doing so, they both discover what really matters in love and life, continuing the tradition that so wonderfully brings and keeps families together. Join the Frakes on their State Fair adventure, a whirlwind of song, dance, and celebration that only Rodgers and Hammerstein could bring to town!
