ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Anger, prayer, and pride, it's all a state of mind.

That's the message behind one play on Mother's day.

Roughly two hundred people attended The Miss State of Mind Pageant to learn an important lesson and help others at the same time.

Pageant contestants portrayed literal representations of various emotional states.

The director said women in the audience can identify with depression, fear, immorality and other characters.

"When we've done the play in the past we had people call and say you know that was me on stage you really helped me," said Femi Anderson, Director.

Proceeds will benefit Stand up Again Outreach; they help provide basic needs for people in the area.

A portion will also go to The Liberty House, which provides help for domestic violence victims.
