Whether you are looking for blue ribbons or for adventure and romance, this Rodgers & Hammerstein show delivers! A slice of Americana straight from the heartland, State Fair is now available for young performers through ninth grade in this "G2K" edition that follows an Iowa family as they leave behind the routine of the farm for three days of fun at the Iowa State Fair. Adapted to run about one hour, with music arranged especially for young teens and tweens, the Show Kit includes a recorded track with sound effects and atmospheres for the Carnival Midway, a Pie-Judging Contest, Hog Squeals, an old-fashioned dance at the Pavilion, and more. With standards from the Great American Songbook, this show is sweet, corny, and altogether lovable - just the kind of warm-hearted entertainment that only Rodgers and Hammerstein could deliver! Songs include: Opening (Our State Fair); It Might as Well Be Spring; Our State Fair; More than Just a Friend; Isn't It Kinda Fun?; That's the Way It Happens; When I Go Out Walking with My Baby; It's a Grand Night for Singing; All I Owe Ioway.

Due to the fact that "grandrights" must be obtained for licensing and performance of Broadway Jr. Shows, certain restrictions do apply:
- Performances must be done by accredited schools using students in Grade 9 or under only. High schools with students older than ninth grade must contact Music Theater International directly.
- Dance Studios and Summer Camps which are accredited by the American Camping Association may also perform the shows. The summer camp must be connected to an accredited academic elementary/middle school that licenses the show for the camp. These types of organizations will have some different license restrictions with respect to the age of performers, the number of performances allowed and the time frame during which the performances must take place.
- Sorry, orders cannot be processed for Community Theatres, Children's Theatres or Performing Arts schools which do not have an academic curriculum.
- Your purchase price includes the materials in the showkit plus unlimited performing rights for one year. Upon placing your order, you will receive a performance rights license from Hal Leonard Corporation. After the completed license is returned to Hal Leonard, they will send out the complete Showkit (non-returnable). Pepper® will then send you an invoice for the material.
- Products may be sold only in the United States.
