Andrina Peterson - Owner of Pyjama Drama (Malaysia) & Helen O'Grady International (Subang Jaya)

Since 2007, Andrina who is a trained and experience drama teacher has been teaching weekly drama classes to children age 5 to 17 years old in Kuala Lumpur. Apart from managing her own drama academy, Andrina and her team of drama facilitators have produced drama productions with the participation of over 700 children, annually. 

Seeing how drama has had a positive impact on non-native speakers of the English language regardless of cultural background, Andrina was inspired to take it to the next level, hence the birth of Primo Drama - a specialised drama academy for pre-schoolers to young adults (primodramma.com). Primo Dramma is in collaboration with two renowned drama brands - Pyjama Drama UK and Helen O' Grady International. It is also the first drama academy to be approved by the Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE).
