John Davidson, Kathryn Crosby, Donna McKechnie and Andrea McArdle will star in the Theater Guild’s stage version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “State Fair.”

A pre-Broadway tour is slated to begin this summer in Des Moines, Iowa (setting of the original movie and site of its opening in 1945), before an early 1996 Broadway bow.

The show features a new book by Tom Briggs and Louis Mattioli and will incorporate songs from both film versions as well as lesser known works from other parts of t he R&H catalog.

James Hammerstein co-directs with Randy Skinner, who also is choreographing.
