Jeffrey Smart

The late Mr. Jeffrey Smart started writing skits for various school programs while attending high school in Florida. He later studied playwriting at Indiana University with Dr. Sam Smiley, author of "Playwriting: The Structure of Action." Jeff believed every line of a play should have an action; every character is trying to achieve something every time he or she says something.

Thanks to the encouragement of everyone at Eldridge (where he worked for a time), Jeff's best ideas for plays always seemed to be for high school.
