Work Plays Schools Program


 
 
Since 2002 our Work Plays Schools Program has engaged young workers through lively, entertaining and thought-provoking professional theatre productions that inform young workers of their responsibilities and rights to a safe and healthy workplace.   
 
 We bring the Work Plays Schools Program to Alberta schools FREE OF CHARGE.

The examples in the play are real which makes the helpful information real.  

GRADE 12 STUDENT – JT FOSTER HIGH SCHOOL (Nanton)

 

I knew that bosses have expectations of me but learned that I should also have expectations of my bosses.

GRADE 8 STUDENT – OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL (Camrose)

 

The play exceeded my expectations!  While I anticipated important topics would be covered I didn’t expect such a top-notch performance by a professional troupe.  Your performance blew me away!  In fact, it was so moving there were several times I had to expand some serious effort not to cry in front of my students.

CALM TEACHER – DR. EP SCARLETT HIGH SCHOOL (Calgary)

 

It is extremely relevant to young people who are just starting out their world of work explorations.  I really like how the performance touches on how everyone has his or her own reasons to need to work.

I teach construction.  An aspect of my course deals rather heavily on employee/employer relationships and safety requirements and expectations from both.  This was excellent!

We had a discussion in class afterwards around the ideas that stuck out for individuals and students wanted to discuss the play more.

CONSTRUCTION TEACHER – JASPER PLACE HIGH SCHOOL (Edmonton) 

 

  

 

The 2016/2017 Work Plays Schools Program is made possible through the support from labour and business organizations and individuals across Alberta, the Government of Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety Innovation & Engagement Grants Program, and the Alberta Law Foundation.
