stellaluna_image12.jpgRobyn Jamison, mother of three in Bella Vista, is the thrilled winner of four tickets to see the musical adaptation of the lovable children’s book, Stellaluna, by Janell Cannon. She’ll also receive a gift certificate to Jose’s Mexican Restaurant on Dickson Street.

Robyn, formerly a proposal writer at the University of Arkansas, was very complimentary of nwaMotherlode, saying it’s easy to navigate and “is very well done.”

We’re glad we can help you feel connected to other moms just like you, Robyn! Gwen and I definitely want this to be a place where moms can interact, have a laugh and learn a little something new along the way.

Robyn said she expects to attend the play with her husband, Mark, a “computer geek” who works at IBM, and their two youngest children.

Just a reminder: tickets range in price from $10-16 and can be purchased by calling the Walton Arts Center Box Office at 479-443-5600 or visiting
