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.

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

Mostly in 1994 we made a lot of work, we really did not had all that technology that we have, now on the days. Also kids used to be played with toys and board games. Now we play with their touch phones. In 1994, people got the tech and started playing with it and getting addicted. The End
