At the end of the Academy year our students present a short, scripted production and all family members and friends are invited to this exciting event!  Drama classes with Helen O’Grady are a fun and exciting way to learn acting skills.

“When (my daughter) began drama she was a very shy child, lacking in confidence and reluctant to participate in public speaking. In just 18 months she has become a confident young lady, who delights in performing for others and was in the finals of the local public speaking competition! Drama is great fun for her, but it is also very rewarding as a parent to see the personal development in your own child. I love to see her perform at the mid year and end of year concerts and to think how far she has come!” -Juliette

“I love it here! It is soo fun! And every-thing is soo funny!” –Sherry- Randwick
