Established in 2013, Little Actors Speech, Drama and Etiquette Academy was founded by qualified Foundation Phase teachers. Today, our creative curriculum is delivered by a group of legendary superhero teachers and is specially designed to turn any child into a confident, expressive and well-mannered shining star. If your child is a natural drama king or queen, Little Actors is an opportunity to channel their outgoing personality. Or, if your child is reserved, we can help to build their self-confidence.
Little Actors places an emphasis on edu-tainment, with fun themes and engaging educational props that ignite imagination and curiosity. For example, each Little Actor is given their own “Creative Carpet” – a space where they can head off on a magical, imaginary journey. While Mr Manners the talking animal uses exciting stories, poems, crazy songs and dancing to help improve listening and interactive social skills.
Normally, lessons are hosted weekly, either as part of a school’s curriculum, or as an extra-mural activity. Some branches also offer private classes. *Due to the COVID19 Pandemic, we now offer weekly online lessons*
Welcome to Little Actors Online
Speech, Drama & Etiquette
At Little Actors, our purpose is to fulfil the emotional and confidence-building needs of children. Our academy offers a unique, specially designed curriculum that focuses on speech, drama and etiquette for children aged 3 – 13 years old.
Whether your child is a born extrovert, or needs a little help to come out of their shell, our weekly classes can improve their general etiquette, good manners and boost their belief in their own abilities.
Our happy parents, principles and actors
Luka will definitely be returning in the 2nd semester. I really have noticed a positive difference with her, particularly with her speech and etiquette. Thanks very much.
Ethan loves your classes, thank you for being so committed.
Looking back where my anxious little love was so scared and worried, we can see the happiness that you’ve bought her, it brings tears to my eyes. We are forever thankful for that Sharon, you will never know how much it means to us
Thank you so much Sharon, she loves her Drama lessons!
Thank you so much for your work with these little people! I enrolled Joshy to try and build up his confidence a bit. Well… I didn’t expect it to be a whole lot in such a short time!! He’s gotten so much of his confidence back & so much more! Everybody has noticed and commented. Thank you!
I have to agree Yolaine is a little star at home as well. If she needs to tell you something she starts off with “Mom weet jy”, it really makes me laugh. She has also had more confidence to speak to her grandparents over the phone which she never liked to do. Thank you for everything, you can really hear a difference in the way she speaks, in both English & Afrikaans.
Thank you so much, I am really impressed with the work that you do and the results are apparent. Iphe has really grown and improved.
Little Actors has made a huge difference in her life, as well as the way in which she conducts herself. I would highly recommend the class to other parents who would like to instill certain principles in their babies. I’m looking forward to the next three months of adventure.
You are doing a fantastic work Sharon, I see the positive result on my kids. Well done and thank you!
Thank you so much – I can see all you do in Zac and I am a proud mommy.
You are really doing a good job with Isabella! She is still a little shy though, but we will work on that together.
A week before you came to the school, the social worker advised that I should put Ariana into drama lessons, or something to help her with her self-confidence. Then Little Actors came along and I couldn’t not let her do it. It was as if it was meant to be. I cannot tell you the big change I have seen in her with what you have done. Thank you so much, I really appreciate everything you have done.
It has been an absolute pleasure taking this journey with Little Actors. We have noticed the positive changes in her overall interactions & mannersisms. I encourage sharing of the days activities for both her happy moments and her sad moments, and we try to look at a plan of action to change her sad moments into happy ones. You are amazing and I think that she has benefited tremendously from taking Little Actors. Hats off to you!
Thank you sooooo much! Mea has sang the “Stranger Danger” song, she has done the “Jack in the Box” dance & she has told me all about telling the truth and lies. She has also received an E for Excellent on her report card for good manners! I am absolutely thrilled! I know Little Actors will help build her self confidence.
I just want to say thanks for all you’ve done for Riley. She has grown and blossomed and you were so instrumental in all that. My special shy girls was laughing so much, it makes my heart so very happy! Thank you.
You have really helped set a good foundation for Sonal to grow in her onfidence. She will miss you and I will miss all her wonderful stories and recollections of what happened in Little Actors every Tuesday!
Thank you so much I will surely encourage and inform other people of your work as it really helped us. It made a big difference in our lives.
Mikha’s confidence has really blossomed this year so I have to attribute her new confidence to your program. Even her dancing at ballet has improved to the extent that she has been invited to dance a solo at this year’s Eistedford.
Thank you so much. I will surely encourage & inform other people of your great work. It has really helped us & made a big difference in our lives. Thanks again.

I’m so proud of Harvey. He danced & spoke so nicely as the school concert. Little Actors has truly helped him so much & he’s coming out of his shell bit by bit. I am super proud.
Thank you so much Little Actors. We can already see the changes in her vocabulary, dance, articulation, storytelling, imagination and emphasis – basically she’s a little actor! Thank you so much for the great work you guys do!
Queen Bee & Little Actors are wonderful! We had a lovely morning in “Wonderland” and we are looking forward to their next visit this week! Thank you to the amazingly creative team from Little Actors.
Thank you for your positive energy.
Little Actors has had such a brilliant impact at our school. We can especially see the positive difference at our school play. Thank you, we appreciate all your great work and energy.
Thanks a lot, Sidze is always talking about you and she makes sure that she shows me and her father how good she can act, she is blessed to have you in her life and she loves you a lot. Thank you very much for your teaching and guidance towards her life. Have a blessed weekend.
I’m very happy that I’ve enrolled Yolaine into Little Actors. Even the Ballet Teacher said that Yolaine has improved in the last term. She is more talkative and shares much more with us! Thank you for everything.
We have noticed that Chloe’s confidence has improved significantly over the last couple of weeks and Teacher Hettie and I have discussed her progress, thank you. I am really happy that she is enjoying the classes and making progress in the confidence category as that was the very reason we wanted her to take these classes.
