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.

Here lies Texmas, the Santa Claus of Texas. He gave us presents and dry cookies with the most delicious spoiled milk every two months. His Texas oil helped the people power their cars on. He danced like a gazelle that would make clouds rain spoiled milk. The people would flood the streets to drink the milk. The story goes that he will return every 20 years to seek revenge on the Texans who killed him but for now… We bury him in his flowery carriage. Merry Texmas!

20 years later he came to seek revenge on those who killed him. He got the first one and took him to his carriage. He had no arms or legs and he begged for mercy but Texmas said “No you have to pay, so no way.” He got the last one, but he got away. He will have to wait 20 years but Texmas got his arm. Texmas said “You got away but that is okay. You still have to pay.” THE END

Pizza People

By Amelia, Bella, Drew, Keelin, Cherokee Elementary

It was July 2016 and the US Olympic team had just won gold. Everyone met for breakfast after their celebratory pizza karaoke party the night before. They got a call from Domino’s Pizza in the middle of breakfast. Domino’s asked the team to represent them in several TV commercials. “OOOOO” they said! “Of course we’ll do it! Free pizza!” “I’m Megan! I’m Bella! I’m Julia! I’m Drew! We sure love Domino’s. The chosen pizza of the US Olympic team!” After days of commercial filming and pizza eating, the team was sick. The team met for a swim practice and they felt different. After a few minutes in the pool, they emerged different and soggy. They had transformed into actual pizza. A member of the diving team approached the pizza people and treated himself to a nice hearty lunch. The End
