Based on the screenplay by Oscar Hammerstein II

Based on the novel by Phil Stong

Rodgers & Hammerstein's only musical written directly for the screen is now a stage musical that's had critics raving from coast to coast. Set against the colorful backdrop of an American heartland tradition, STATE FAIR travels with the Frake family as they leave behind the routine of the farm for three days of adventure at the annual Iowa State Fair. Mom and Pop have their hearts set on blue ribbons while their daughter and son find romance and heartbreak on the midway. Set to the magical strains of an Academy Award-winning score and augmented by other titles from the Rodgers and Hammerstein songbook, STATE FAIR is the kind of warm-hearted family entertainment only Rodgers & Hammerstein could deliver!

Cartoonist of Iconic Nancy Comic Strip Guy Gilchrist to Appear at Tennessee State Fair on Sept 8th
by BWW News Desk - Sep 6, 2014

Award winning internationally syndicated cartoonist and author of the iconic Nancy comic strip, Guy Gilchrist will be appearing at the Tennessee State Fair at 500 Wedgewood Avenue, Nashville, TN on September 8th, 2014. Gilchrist will be appearing at the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) booth signing free copies of Nancy Loves Nashville provided by TDOT. He will also be doing an interactive and humorous presentations designed for the entire family that will inspire and entertain as audiences draw his famous characters right along with him on one of the fair's stages. He will be doing his presentations at 10 am CT and 2 am CT at the TDOT booth. Gilchrist's presentation will draw from his own personal experiences and provide antidotes from his work on Nancy, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jim Henson's Muppets, and much more. 'I am very honored and humbled to be taking part at the Tennessee State Fair,' said Guy Gilchrist, the cartoonist of Nancy. 'I look forward to having a wonderful time showing everyone how to have fun drawing cartoons, and at the same time provide the keys to unlocking the audiences' most cherished gifts and dreams. 'The message that Nancy Loves Nashville conveys promotes the importance of taking care of the environment is essential and critical that this starts at an early age,' continued Gilchrist. 'As a resident of Tennessee, this has a special meaning for me and I am glad to be taking part in this promotion with our partners with the Tennessee Department of Transportation.' Guy Gilchrist at the age of 24, he was hand-selected to create Jim Henson's Muppets Comic Strip which was printed worldwide in 660-plus newspapers daily from 1981 to 1986. Throughout the years, he has set his hand to such notable cartoons as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Fraggle Rock and The Pink Panther and was instrumental in the creation of The Muppet Babies. He and his wife reside in Nashville, Tennessee. Nancy Loves Nashville celebrates all that makes Nashville a special place to live from the music to the events while educating children on the importance of not littering and taking care of the environment. In addition to the 24 page coloring book, Nancy appears in billboards throughout Davidson County. Gilchrist teamed up with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and Metro Nashville Public Works in creating this fun and educational coloring book for students in Davidson County Schools. Syndicated internationally in 80 countries and some 400 newspapers, Nancy has a viewership of 57 million readers around the world. And as fans of the the comic strip know, Nancy resides in the fictional town of Three Rocks with her Aunt Fritzi and friend, Sluggo. Gilchrist took over the Nancy comic strip in 1995. In 2013 he unveiled a one-of-a-kind exhibit, Nancy Loves Nashville, at the Nashville International Airport that revealed the location of Three Rocks as a suburb just outside of Nashville. (more...)
