Pageant season in full swing

June 19, 2013 

They say “all the world is a stage,” and I guess that’s right, at least for the contestants in the Miss Georgia pageant this week.

The 68th annual Miss Georgia competition starts Wednesday, and those of you who aren’t traveling to Columbus to watch it live still have an opportunity to see it.

WRBL will broadcasting the pageant live at starting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday with the first night of preliminary competitions. That coverage will continue every evening at 7:30 through the actual pageant on Saturday. During the preliminaries, the contestants will compete in swimsuit/fitness, evening gown and talent.

Charlene Bibeau, Miss Warner Robins; Sydney Hillman, Miss Warner Robins’ Outstanding Teen, and Carmen Foskey, Miss International City’s Outstanding Teen will all be competing with different schedules during the preliminaries. Along with the three official representatives, three other young women with ties to Warner Robins will compete in the Miss Georgia pageant -- Michelle Johnson, Miss Tri Rivers; Courtney Walker, Miss South Central Georgia; and Taylor Peterson, Miss Historic Southern Plains’ Outstanding Teen.

While the new Miss Georgia and Miss Georgia’s Outstanding Teen will be crowned later this week, the Miss Warner Robins board is looking ahead to the next group of young ladies that will represent out city. The Miss Warner Robins 2014 pageant has been planned for July 27. Applications are currently being accepted for the Outstanding Teen division from girls ages 13-16 and for the Miss division from young women ages 17-23. A competition for younger girls ages 2-12 will be held earlier in the day to earn titles such as Miss Tiny Warner Robins. All of the pageants will be held at the Homer J. Walker Civic Center.

Another set of young people who enjoy the stage are also hard at work. The 4th Wall Children’s Theater, directed by Warner Robins High School drama teacher Tamara Fisher, is having summer camp now through June 28. The camp is set up not only to work on children’s acting skills but to increase the appreciation of the theater in younger children. The camp will conclude with a production of “Honk, the Musical” that will be open to the public. For more information and to register, visit or email
