Behold the wonder and majesty of the PlayMakers Laboratory Archive! Here you can read over 20 years worth of stories written by children that PlayMakers Laboratory have performed for the public. It’s been a magical journey.

In an effort to reduce the many obstacles that stand in the way of writing stories, making plays, and using imagination, we ask that students not focus on spelling and grammar while they craft their work. We ask that you keep this in mind when you delve into their masterpieces.
