We can help them! Each week, children aged 4-18 will experience 3 sessions of drama, dance and singing and make new friends at the same time.

PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES
We like to offer our students a rich curriculum in the performing arts, which includes putting together a show as a school. In the past, students have performed Seussical Jr., Beauty and the Beast Jr. and Horrible Histories - Groovy Greeks. We also have links with local operatic societies and our students have appeared in several stage productions over the years.

We offer the children as many audition opportunities as possible throughout any given year. We occasionally participate in national events organised by our head office. In June 2016, we took some of our students to perform at the prestigious Birmingham Symphony Hall. An amazing time was had by all, and we look forward to going again in the future.

All students aged 10 and over are offered an annual opportunity to audition for the Stagecoach summer showcase. In the summer of 2016, a Beeston student was successful in auditioning and became a cast member for Little Shop of Horrors. She had an amazing 2 weeks in London before performing to 3 live audiences.

Occasionally, our students are offered the opportunity to perform locally at various events. In addition to the above, we now offer PAA Musical Theatre exams at Stagecoach Beeston.

Stagecoach Acting, Singing and Dance Classes & Times

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Main Stages classes are split in three age appropriate groups, where young people learn new skills in each of the complementary Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama. We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.
OUR SCHOOL

Stagecoach Beeston has a team of dedicated teachers who work hard with the children each and every week in their dance, drama and singing lessons. In such a welcoming and friendly environment, the children easily make new friends and learn skills for life.


OUR TRAINING
Each week in dance, drama and singing lessons, the students cover a wide range of topics including Stage Make-Up, Props, Musical Theatre, Street Dance, Stage Presence, Radio Broadcast Workshops, DJ Workshops, Circus Skills, Pop and Contemporary Dance. We offer workshops across the year which help to enhance the children’s experiences and skills at Stagecoach. We also cover audition skills, which is very important to learn. Particularly for students wishing to pursue a career in the performing arts.


PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES
Each Autumn term, the students work on a full production to perform to their families at the end of term. It is a hugely popular event that we look forward to all year. The students recently performed Seussical Jr, and the positive feedback from the audience was phenomenal. In 2015, we are very excited to be offering our students the chance to perform Horrible Histories - Groovy Greeks! This is an exclusive opportunity for Stagecoach students. We are also going to be arranging a theatre trip to see the show in Nottingham in November 2015. We also have links with local operatic societies and our students have appeared in several stage productions over the years. The most recent one was ‘Annie’ with 5 of our girls performing as orphans. We offer the children as many audition opportunities as possible throughout any given year.
