The play runs February 26th - March 1st and tickets are still available through the http://www.cmtsj.org/ website. Be sure to say hello to Athenna!
Here is the play's description from the cmtsj website. The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

Once again Nicole shows that the National American Miss Pageants are about getting out and giving back. I had a chance to spend some time with the Renard family a few weeks back in their hometown of Kennewick, WA. They are such a classy family and it doesn't surprise me one bit to see them to see them out serving in the community.
Nicole, along with all of our other reigning National Queens are headed to Houston, TX this weekend to participate in the National Photoshoot - part of their prize package for winning the National Title. Have fun ladies!!
On a separate topic, here is a link to a news article that surfaced about a young lady named Katie O'Brien from Freemont, CA. She got her start in pageants through the National American Miss Pageant system and is off and running! Best of luck to you Katie! http://www.fremontbulletin.com/ci_11690469

Here's the video from Arianna's audition:
Here's a copy of the article:
Arianna Afsar is only 16 years old.
But the aspiring singer has already packed a lot into her short time on Earth.
This San Diego high school student competed in numerous beauty pageants as a child. Her home town also honored her with Arianna Afsar Day in 2005, in recognition of her efforts as a sixth grader for founding an "Adopt a Grandfriend" program.
Now, Afsar can add American Idol Finalist to this resume, as spoilers have revealed she's one of this season's final 36 contestants. Way to go, girl!
Does she deserve this honor? Watch Arianna's audition and let us know...

Let me say that again - ANYONE who qualifies at an NAMiss State Pageant for Nationals and attends the National Pageant Thanksgiving week in Anaheim, California has an equal chance to win! There will be an official drawing on Thanksgiving day and one lucky young lady will take home the car. How cool is that!
