PLAYlabs are experiences that provide a chance for GREAT to be brave and take bold artistic risks as we venture into the new. We need to take risks because we believe you can’t create something new without going somewhere that makes you a little bit uncomfortable. We’re always asking questions. We’re never satisfied with the status quo. It’s the secret to how we find the extraordinary.
If you like a little risk with your theater experience, PLAYlabs is for you. The Great River Educational Arts Theatre and the Learning Lab Theatre go hand in hand and each play a role in achieving the vision of building life skills through quality arts education.
