Pictured in this story are members of the cast rehearsing on the stage of the Fine Arts Performance Hall in early January. The musical takes a glimpse into the life of a farming family, the Frakes, and their three-day adventure at the Iowa State Fair in 1946. While parents Abel and Melissa are hoping to win a few blue ribbons, siblings Margy and Wayne are more interested in finding romance on the midway.
