'Caught in the Net' professional production in Nairobi

03 April

The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy celebrates the theatre and our return back after many theatres had to close during the Covid Pandemic. 

Hats off to our Principal, Amar Desai, for the incredible direction of 'Caught in the Net' in Nairobi, Kenya and bringing theatre back on the stage. The Helen O'Grady Principals in Africa are very talented people and Amar, and his wife, Jinita, are very talented people who know how to bring out the best in all their actors and students in the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy in Kenya. Their company, Aperture Productions, offers many programmes in the performing arts, including Helen O'Grady and recently launching the Creative Training Corporate training programmes. 

Live theatre is an important part of the training of our children and adults in Africa to build confidence, acting and communication skills. The students become natural actors and many become involved in the theatre themselves.

The Academy strongly believes in promoting live theatre!

"On Friday evening I witnessed the professional level of theatre that the Helen O' Grady Drama Academy is able to impart on our children and I needed to share my excitement with you. What they managed to achieve with Grade R learners was astounding! The school invested in lessons and the final product was showcased at the Prize-Giving and it was a wonderful and heart-warming experience."
