It was excellent when I joined as a child and I can already see a difference in confidence in my daughter after just a few weeks of joining

Excellent for confidence and communication
South Manchester Helen O'Grady Drama Academy announce the start of their summer performance term. Would you like to learn drama and appear on stage in July? What better for your child's confidence and self-esteem than an all encompassing curriculum based method of learning backed up by an end of term performance in July 2016. Don't hang around as places are limited as we will be allocating parts in the next two weeks. Ring the office for a free trial lesson on 0161 749 8746.
Exciting Drama Classes

Hiya. SMHOG hopes you all have had a great Easter break and are looking forward to our world famous (well, nearly world famous!!) performance term. All classes re-start on Tuesday 18 April 2017 and there are some spaces still available in some classes. If you want to secure your place for the coming term, give the office a call on 0161 749 8746 or 07595 188484. Alternatively, send us a message through the enquiry facility on our website at or our facebook page... at

We have a fantastic new venue for our performance this year which will take place on Thursday 6 July 2017 and Saturday 8 July 2017 at the Brook Road Methodist Church in Flixton. This venue has a raised stage for better audience viewing which should enhance our excellent shows even further. This venue is more suited to the SMHOG performance and should allow the students to show their abilities in a more theatrical themed venue with excellent lighting and sound. Check back on the page for when tickets become available.

However, if you are not part of the SMHOG acting team then you cannot appear on the stage. We recognise the challenge of performance for our students as they all have different levels of experience and ability. There is no competition between students at our classes, all we want is for each child to achieve their own full potential. Our classes our designed to help them do this providing the tools for creativity, confidence self-esteem and communication.

SMHOG thinks it may have resolved its email issue. We are in the process of testing all email accounts and they seem to be working but we anticipate a few gremlins. In the process of moving servers, unfortunately, we have lost some emails and therefore may not respond in good time as we would like to or at all if your email to us has been lost.

If you have not heard from us and are expecting a response, please send another email. We will treat it as priority. Keep checking this page for some very exciting news about the performance term and the new venue to put the shows on.

Meanwhile we thought that we would accompany this post with a picture representing bewilderment. We hope you like it!

Thank you Sue and all your team Cheeky Cherubs Play Centre in Urmston for making Helen O'Grady Drama Academy welcome today at our Open Day Event for 2-4 year olds!! We had a great time🎭🌞🤣

Hello everybody. We have been made aware of an email issue which means that we are not receiving emails intermittently. I will be rectifying the problem as soon as I can but there could be some disruption as a consequence. If you receive an email bounce-back, send us a message via facebook and we will respond.

Hopefully it should not take us too long to fix.

In the meantime here is a picture of our Sale Upper Primary Studio thinking about what the problem is and how to fix it!!

A quick look at the talented drama kids performing at our Sale Studio. Our curriculum based teaching covered body expression and emotion this week. We think that they were particularly brilliant and look like they were having a fab time.

Our classes are non-competitive, developmental and fun. Your child learns confident communication and gains self-esteem through our unique drama based programme.
