"My 14 year old daughter, Annalie, has been enjoying Stagecoach New Malden for more than three years now and absolutely loves it! She was shy as an eleven year old and we have seen her really blossom into a much more confident teenager. She is very keen on the end of term performances - but I think the highlight for her was this summer when she got to perform at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Imagine how proud we felt too, to see our "little" girl on a West End stage! Stagecoach New Malden is a great hobby - and a great confidence enhancer. Highly Recommended!" - Debbie (a mum who gets 3 hours peace on a Saturday afternoon) of Wimbledon.
Our two daughters, Harriet aged 9 and Felicity aged 5, both attend Stagecoach New Malden and love it. Harriet has been going for 5 years now. The Stagecoach staff are really professional and caring, they take time to draw out the best from each child. They make the sessions great fun too. We have been pleased to see how both children have grown in confidence in all three disciplines; singing, dance and drama. As well as that they are learning valuable life skills; such as team work and taking responsibility for remembering props and learning lines. We like the extra opportunities that are offered too; the chance to take LAMDA exams and perform in dance competitions and theatres." - John and Elizabeth Cronin
