Prescott theatre troupe taking audiences to 'State Fair'

PRESCOTT--People in this area, accustomed to a first-class county fair, usually choose the Minnesota State Fair when they want something more, though other state fairs in Illinois, Iowa and, of course, Wisconsin aren't too distant.

This fair season, they have another option, courtesy of the Great River Road Theatre in Prescott. The troupe is presenting Rodger and Hammerstein's "State Fair," a musical, in the city's Town Square Park for performances on Thursdays through Sundays, July 12-15 and 19-22.
