Stagecoach Swindon goes to Disneyland Paris
30 students from Stagecoach Swindon are delighted to have been selected to perform at Disneyland Paris in July 2015! The children aged 8- 18 years old will be performing in the pre-parade to an audience of thousands and also successfully auditioned to gain a place on the Disney ONSTAGE performance programme. They will be joined by their families on this trip to celebrate this amazing opportunity.
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.

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!
