Congratulations! You’ve found Ludovico Studio!

We are Warrington’s premier acting class for beginners and professionals, designed to elevate and empower a new acting community in and around our town. 


Our aim? We encourage acting enthusiasts young and old, with unique weekly sessions focused on core acting techniques, stagecraft, camera performance, improvisation, and industry know-how.

We also work hard to provide creative opportunities for our members via short-film projects, theatre productions, and showcases for actors who may not have direct access to industry in Manchester and London. 

And we’re not just looking for those with industry experience, but also passionate people who want to give it a go, whether you’re 18 or 80!

Our only requirements are an open mind, commitment and enthusiasm.  


Your teacher? 

Warringtonian Darren Jeffries began acting professionally at the age of 15, after a performance at Warrington’s Parr Hall led him to his first role in Channel 4’s ‘Hollyoaks’. 

As prominent cast member Sam ‘OB’ O’Brien, he remained on the show for a further ten years, leaving the show in 2007 to continue his career. He has since performed on stage at various theatres across the country including HOME and 53two in Manchester, Bolton Octagon and Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax, alongside various TV roles.

Darren continues to pass on his own industry experience during this time, teaching acting professionals and beginners via Ludovico Studio, situated in Warrington’s very own Pyramid Arts Centre.

The details?

  • Our next 2020 acting courses run for eight weeks, beginning in the last week of April and concluding at the end of June.
