The Play Creation Lab supports classroom learning for students by offering them an opportunity to more closely examine stories and engage with the narrative themes. Soulpepper Artist Educators will engage students through hands-on learning to develop their literacy, communication skills, and creative thinking in their classrooms. We aim to provide young people in our community the opportunity to develop their skills as storytellers.​
