Directed by E&H student Olivia Allen, This classic show centers on the adventures of a family at the Iowa state fair where they chase after the prizes of blue ribbons and new romance. As one of the few musicals to start out on screen before heading to broadway the movie version won an Academy Award for best song with “It Might as Well be Spring.” The success of the show’s score can be attribute to it being written by iconic broadway duo Rodger and Hammerstein.
