Philadelphia Young Playwrights

THE STORY:

My mother, Adele Magner, started the Philadelphia Young Playwrights 25 years ago, and I proudly sit on the board of directors to continue her legacy. Adele's vision has continued to inspire and teach many thousands of Philadelphia-area students how to find their own voices and how to express their thoughts, ideas, emotions, needs, desires, fears and hopes through the powerful process of playwriting. This has been, for most, a truly transforming process, a life-changing process, as they begin to discover their self-worth. PYP continues to effectively fulfill its mission, as stated by Adele from the very beginning—“to tap the potential of youth and inspire learning through playwriting.” This non-profit organization has created countless significant and life-changing collaborative experiences among students from 3rd through 12th grade and beyond, as well as among their teachers, theater artists and the entire regional theater community. It is helping to build literate audiences and theater participants for our future. At a time when the whole institution of education is struggling and the Philadelphia School District has little to contribute anymore in providing instruction and experiences in the arts, PYP continues to grow and expand. We need to expand our capacity to advance student learning in order to cultivate the next generation of artists and socially-engaged young citizens. Private donations are pivotal to help continue the survival of amazing programs like PYP.
