Build Dreams not Walls!

I enjoyed this podcast so much! Dream Train takes a relatable story that addresses issues of modern times and turns it into an imaginative, engaging, and charming journey. Written for an audience of all ages, this podcast makes for a great opportunity to encourage our younger generations to ask questions, explore, and fuel their imaginations while it also guides audience members of older generations through the process of having the more difficult conversations with children as their curiosity about the world begins to rapidly grow. Heartwarming, fun, and so beautifully written!

A great work!

Starry has established herself as a great playwright with her previous works, and I would also argue that this is her best yet! Well done!!

Imaginative and Timely!

Dream Train’s rich soundscape and charming cast of young voices encourage the listener to give free rein to imagination! As Scout and Honor journey through the past, present and future of their divided town, they ask big questions about differences and why they make people uncomfortable. This play is warm, unique, and a great tool for starting a larger conversation with your child.
