Bryn Magnus has been a member of Curious Theater Branch since 1989. With Curious Theater Branch, Magnus has written and produced 16 full-length plays as well as countless solo performance pieces. Presently Magnus works as the coordinator of PANG (Producing Arts for a New Generation), a Free Street jobs training program that educates an ensemble of 8 Chicago teens in critical thinking skills that help deepen their personal artistic aesthetic so that they can be presenters of the performing arts. As well, for the past five years Magnus has facilitated writing workshops for MadJoy Theatrics. These workshops have culminated in the creation of scripts that have been produced by MadJoy under the direction of Artistic Director, Ron Bieganski, and Executive Director of Free Street, David Schein. Recently Magnus collaborated with Evanston Children’s Theater Artistic Director Amy Eaton in a playwriting class for youth. The script that culminated from that class, RUCKUS FOR AN ANGEL, was just produced by Evanston Children’s Theater. Since 1998, Magnus has served as an adjunct professor in the theater department at the University of Illinois Chicago campus.
