The Autumn Term is Here!
Wow! What a great first week back at Stagecoach. A huge welcome to my regulars and new faces!
This term students will be busy learning lines, singing and dancing, and getting ready to perform 'Camp Rock' in October. Further Stages are enjoying getting to grips with some TV Scripts and close up acting. They will also be putting their heads together to devise a promotional video for our school. Early Stages classes are full and busy. They are making lots of new friends and getting to grips with skills that will lead them on to a performance at the end of the year. There were lots of happy, smiley faces from the new pupils who joined us having their two week trials in the afternoon school. They will be performing at the end of term too!

We look forward to seeing you again this week. There is much more fun to be had here at Stagecoach Shrewsbury.

Presentation Day
We had such a fun day on our last day of term. The parents were invited to come along and watch their children perform on a bigger stage to see what they had been up to this summer term. The Main School performed with everyone on stage. Furthers Stages performed some pieces from Romeo and Juliet. We finished off on a high by showing our performance of the Wedding Singer that was performed at the Wolverhampton grand. After a little something to eat and drink from the buffet.Parents had the chance to mingle and chat to teachers. We then finished the presentation off with the students getting certificates and awards for special achievements this term. 

What a Buzz for Bring a Parent Day!
We had such fun on our last day of summer term with our new afternoon school. Lots of parents turned up to learn the skills and support their children. The teachers certainly put the parents through their paces. Everyone was engaged, focused and ready for what the teachers had in store for them.

Singing involved a vocal warm up of 'I like the flowers I like the daffodils'. Some parents had great voices and harmonies too! Dance involved how our bodies move and work. They had to focus on the smallest of  props ... feathers. The concentration was amazing. Drama had lots of parent participation with fun games and still tableaus.

Bring a Parent Day does give a good insight for parents to see how Stagecoach really works. After refreshments and cake!!

The children then showed their parents a little demonstration of what they had learned this term.
Our afternoon school only opened in April and we certainly have got a lovely group of children and also some very talented parents!

New Teacher
We would like to welcome our New Early stages teacher Gemma Sharp to our team. She brings wealth of experience in the performing arts and we can't wait to see her in action!
