Stagecoach Trowbridge performed at Disneyland Paris
 Children and teenagers from Stagecoach travelled to Disneyland Paris in July 2015 to perform onstage in the Main Disney Theatre and danced in the pre-parade through the Disney Park. The students auditioned last year and beat hundreds of hopefuls to secure the chance to perform their Musical Theatre routines at this world famous venue. This is the second year in a row that students from Stagecoach Trowbridge have performed at Disneyland Paris and it is testament to the standard of the work produced at our school that our students have been selected two years running. We hope to perform there again in 2017!
Students Performed in the West End
 In June 2015, students from our Performing Arts School took to the stage at The Shaftesbury Theatre in the heart of the West End. This was the third time students have performed in the West End and it was an incredible experience. 20 lucky students from our Theatre School performed an ‘Austin Powers’ themed extravaganza to a packed house of hundreds and the memories of the day will no doubt last a lifetime!

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 believe in the potential of every child!
