Where we started

In 1979, Helen O’Grady, a trained teacher and actress, hired a hall in Perth, Australia and commenced after school drama classes for children. Her aims were to provide a self-development through drama programme for children.

45 years later, Helen O’Grady’s programme of self-development has become the largest drama organisation of its kind, with over 100,000 students attending worldwide classes each week.

Our drama classes educational provision covers both extra-curricular and in-school sessions. We offer a structured weekly one-hour drama lesson tailored to the age of the students, incorporating speech, movement, and improvisation, based on Helen O’Grady’s original aims.
