The organization "promotes literacy through playwriting in more than 50 public and private K-12 schools each year. Magner is legacy as in making the announcement the PYP explains, “Aron Magner, the son of Adele and Alan Magner, has a long-standing, intimate family connection with Young Playwrights. Aron’s mother Adele Magner conceived and founded Philadelphia Young Playwrights in 1986, launching the program during the 1987-88 school-year. Young Playwrights soon emerged as a groundbreaking tool for classroom teachers to inspire students’ literacy learning and creativity. Young Playwrights mourned the passing of Adele in 2000. Aron’s father Alan Magner also serves on the board.”

Magner will return to the stage on October 8 with Conspirator.
