Each year, Dreams of Hope launches an original production created and performed by its theatriQ Youth Ensemble, developed in residence at KST’s Alloy Studios. The young artists, ages 13-21, work with professional collaborators and advisers to develop stage works that address LGBTQ themes and issues. This year, they present Hearts on Hold,  adding to a range of past productions that have examined individual mythology by weaving storytelling from ancient Greece to Tumblr (Webs), created a magical dramedy in which members of a high school gay-straight alliance gain magical powers (Lavender Spell) and welcomed audiences to a feast that celebrates gardens, communities, and, above all, life (Sun-Dried Tomatoes).

Full program details to be announced. Visit
