Show Synopsis:
State Fair follows the Franke 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 hearbreak on the midway, they discover what they find most important.  This show features an Academy Award-winning score, including the hit sone, "It Might as Well Be Spring." 
We seeking a diverse cast of adults and children to help bring a new look and feel to this classic musical theater piece.   We invite performers of all ethnic backgrounds, body types, and abilities to audition as we would like our cast to reflect the community we serve.  We are also looking to utilize talents actors may have like acrobatics, tumbling, juggling, stilt walking etc.
