The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy is the only organisation of its kind in the UK and had its origins in Australia many years ago.
In 1979, Helen O’Grady, a trained teacher, drama teacher and actress, hired a hall in a Perth suburb and commenced after school drama classes for children. Her aims were to provide a self-development through drama programme for children, to encourage:
Enthusiasm, energy and a positive approach to life
