Stagecoach Swindon goes to Disneyland Paris
32 students from Stagecoach Swindon have just returned from an amazing four day trip where they performed at Disneyland Paris. The children aged 8- 18 years represented their school on stage at ‘Cinemagique’ and then took to the streets in the pre-parade to an audience of thousands. They also opened the Park with an anthem of ‘Frozen’ songs in front of the iconic castle. It was an emotional experience with they shared with their families and friends.
Students joined professional touring show
More than 60 children from our school joined the professional touring show ‘Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat’ as their onstage choir in May. This event was particularly special for us, as the Assistant Musical Director for the show was Stagecoach Swindon ex-student Scott Alder! We were invited to select and train the choir for this fabulous family show four times now since they came to Swindon in 2005. The show opened at Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre on Tuesday 19th May and ran until Saturday 23rd May.

Tomi and Elliott performed a number from the hit West End show ‘Billy Elliot’ in which they are currently both appearing as two best friends, Michael and Billy.

Jay films with Harriet
Stagecoach Swindon student Jay successfully auditioned and filmed in a short student film called ‘Mono’. The film is a about a 10 year old selective mute boy called David, who has a blind and bedbound mum. He was joined on set by ex-Stagecoach Swindon student Harriet (pictured behind Jay with red scarf) who played Runa, a key character who helps David make sound tapes for his Mum. Well done Jay! This opportunity was gained through The Stagecoach Agency.
