PUTTING children to bed can sometimes be an arduous challenge - especially if they are anything like the characters played by young actors and actresses at Helen O'Grady's Drama Academy in Bishopston.

PUTTING children to bed can sometimes be an arduous challenge - especially if they are anything like the characters played by young actors and actresses at Helen O'Grady's Drama Academy in Bishopston.
For the academy's Mime to Music exercise, children got the opportunity to dress up in their pyjamas and onesies, and act as mischievous children at a sleepover party.
Using mime and props such as pillows, blankets and teddy bears, children performed the 'bedlam at bedtime' scene to a fitting soundtrack.
Gemma Preston, who led the class, played the role of the annoyed parent.
Established 20 years ago, the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy aims to develop children's confidence, public speaking and communication skills.
Classes are taught by qualified teachers, and an end of year show is held at the Redgrave Theatre in Clifton.
