Summer Evenings with André

The A&H — in partnership with Central Florida Community Arts — will regale you with tales of treachery and mystery written by J. André Smith, founder of the Maitland Art Center!

Did you know that J. André Smith, founder of the Maitland Art Center, was not only an architect and artist, but also a playwright?! This Summer, the A&H — in partnership with Central Florida Community Arts — will regale you with his tales of treachery and mystery! Three Saturday evenings of play readings will be offered, each followed by a Q&A session. Please note, due to the adult themes, these plays are for ages 13 and up, with parental discretion.

JULY 14:

How to Write a Play: A playwright gets inspiration by hiring his chauffer to seduce his wife, but his plans goes awry when his chauffer and wife actually fall in love. Hilarity ensues.

A Darkened Room:  A young woman seems on the brink of finding happiness and a home, but when a stranger show up in town, she is forced to confront her past.

The Radiant Visitor, or Mrs. Hupp’s Triumph: A quarrelsome couple has their lives changed when a beautiful woman starts dropping by their home. But is she who she pretends to be?


Unnamed WWI Play: A soldier, left for dead, returns to reveal the truth about another man who has been labeled a war hero.

Pumpkin Pie – A Shadow Play: When two children go looking for a pumpkin, they encounter a wicked witch. This charming tale of adventure and dismemberment will be sure to delight your children. (If they are age 13 & up!)

The Bandit of the Var: A medieval tale of a prince who has lost his throne, and the woman who can help him regain it. Sure, he kidnapped her, and yes, she’s engaged to his brother, but all is fair in love and war, right?


A Shadow Falls on Beaverbrook: A murder-mystery that is unraveled through a series of water colors by Frank Besedick, narrated by Andre Smith.

The Golden Tomb: On a journey to leave New York for a digging party in Egypt with the assistance of an Egyptian Prince, what could go wrong? This group is faced with a battle between power and love. Who will end up lovers and who will love betray?
