South Manchester Helen O'Grady

alex3Hi everyone. We hope you are all enjoying your half term break and looking forward to the next half term of exciting drama activities. We have received some information about one of our Urmston students called Alex Oliva who has recently appeared in his school production of Archie Dobson’s War by taking the lead role of Archie Dobson.

Alex’s mum, Louise, was rightfully proud and managed to provide us with some photographs of him performing which we uploaded to our facebook page at

She said, “This is Alex in his school play.  He played the lead part, Archie Dobson in ‘Archie Dobson’s War’. He had a lot of lines to learn and was on stage a lot on his own, the confidence and ability to do this has without a doubt come from his lessons with you :)”.


We have had had a number of enquiries recently from parents looking to get information from us about our classes. Unfortunately there have been a number of enquiries which do not actually provide any details which allows us to call them back. If you have made an enquiry of us and not received a response, then it may be that we are not able to call you back for this reason. Another problem has occurred where the telephone number or email address has been entered incorrectly so, once again, we cannot get back in touch. We would love to speak with you so that we can explain just what the SMHOG Drama Academy is all about. THe first lesson for all new students is a free trial to allow you to assess whether your child enjoys what we have to offer.

The classes are curriculum based and structured to take advantage of your own child’s confidence and ability. It does not take very long before their creativity comes to the fore and they begin to communicate and perform.

Around the world

As part of the feature of Helen O’Grady we have decided to bring you videos from our companion studios around the world. The first is from Alan Montanaro where he runs his Helen O’Grady classes on the island of Malta.
