I’ll either get run out of town or be a big hit.” FortWorth native andBWDP rehearsal director/répetiteur,Bollinger is thrilled to share her newperspective on motherhood in her firstwork forBWDP—Carved in Stone.Bollinger notes, “Watchingmy son learn at such a tremendous rate during his first year of life fascinatesme.” It begs the question, canwe continue to discover or once ourminds are developed, do our thoughts become repetitious renditions along pathways structured in our brains?Canwe continue to growor arewe carved in stone?Completing the exciting mixed billwill be a premiere byAndyNoble andDionnne SparkmanNoble.
