Congratulations! You’ve found Ludovico Studio!

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

Our aim? We want to encourage the standard of adult and young actors in and around Warrington, with a core focus on ‘Stanislavski’s System’, stagecraft, on-camera technique, improvisation, and industry know-how.

Our long-term aim is to provide creative opportunities 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 actors with previous experience, but also passionate people who just want to give it a go.

Our Adult classes are for any age, whether you’re 18, or 80! And our newly developed Young Adult classes are for those aged 16+.

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


Your teacher? 

Fellow 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, as well as returning to Hollyoaks in 2016/2017, and featuring in BBC1’s ‘Doctors’.

Darren has also continued to pass on his own industry experience during this time, teaching acting professionals and beginners throughout Manchester, Liverpool, Wilmslow, Preston and Bolton.

“Ludovico classes are engaging, informative, and helping us all to develop our skills and confidence. I’m loving my Ludovico journey!” – Louise, Speech and Language Therapist

‘The course has transformed me into a person much more confident in myself, I’m enjoying every minute!” Clair, Full-time carer

“I’m always working hard to keep my acting skills up to date so I don’t get rusty in-between jobs, and the course has been great for that”Eric, Full-time actor

The details?

Our next courses will run for eight weeks beginning the middle week of April and concluding in June.

Sessions run for two hours and will take place in Pyramid Arts Centre in Warrington Town Centre.

We have two adult classes available, Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7pm-9pm, as well as a Saturday afternoon class for young adults aged 16+.

We also offer a FREE Career Construction session before each class where Darren will offer industry advice and mentoring.

Adult classes are £20 per session, and to ensure a consistent learning experience for everyone involved, all learners are required to commit to the full eight weeks. We also provide reduced packages for our young adults and seniors.
