Re-Enrolment Time – Fantastic Free Prize Draw
South Manchester Helen O'Grady
Shrek – The Musical ~ Free Prize Draw
The South Manchester Helen O’Grady Drama Academy are offering a family ticket (two adults and two children) to a New Year’s Eve Matinee (2:30pm) performance showing of Shrek at the Palace Theatre in Manchester for those parents who re-enrol before the 8 December 2014. This fantastic offer is open to those children who are currently in the Academy and are looking to return for the exciting new term starting in January 2015. Direct from the West End and larger than life, the show is based on the award-winning Dream Works animation film, Shrek the Musical, and is a must-see show for all the family. The plot involves an unlikely hero and his loyal steed Donkey as they embark on a quest to rescue the beautiful (yet temperamental) Princess Fiona from a fire breathing, love-sick dragon. Add the diminutive Lord Farquaad, a gang of fairytale misfits and a Gingerbread Man with attitude and you’ve got the biggest, brightest musical comedy around! Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, Shrek the Musical brings all the much-loved Dream Works characters to life, live on stage, in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza. This show has been awarded 5 stars in reviews contained within the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Express. Please note that children under the age of 5 years will not be allowed in the theatre to see this show.
All you have to do is speak to your teacher at your Studio or call Jane or Ruth at the office on 0161 749 8746. Don’t miss out in this fantastic free prize draw.
Don’t forget that if you pay the whole term’s fees in full then you get an additional bonus of a 10% discount. It just keeps getting better and better!!
Drama is the new exercise. At SMHOG, our curriculum based method of learning is designed to get kids active both physically and mentally. Recent government initiatives have focused solely on sport as a means to getting children active which is great if your child likes sport. There are many children who don’t like sport, either running around a muddy field or chasing after some form of ball. So, either these children take part begrudgingly or they don’t take part at all. This is where drama can come in. Drama is a way of exercise which stimulates and invigorates. We believe we are different from other drama schools because at SMHOG we do not have the children competing with each other. Instead, each child is recognised for their own individual achievements.
All children develop and improve with the Helen O’Grady model of learning. It is constantly under review and therefore remains fresh and challenging from the very first class when they join until a child reaches the age of 18 if they so wish. Great friendships form between class mates and we have seen co-operation and communication develop in classes and team work used to devise their own interpretations of the drama based challenges we set.
At SMHOG we are very proud of our achievements and the achievements of the children who choose to come to the Studios within our Academy. Some of our very confident and active youth members came to Helen O’Grady as nervous children who were self conscious and embarrassed to stand out from the crowd. Now they appear on Television in documentaries, on news programmes and on stage at our end of year shows.
