There will also be opportunities to work towards a diploma in musical theatre or acting, and plenty of local and national events to perform at.

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.

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!

Summer Holidays 2015
This August was a busy month for students at Stagecoach Trowbridge. The school ran two holiday workshops - a musical week and a drama week, culminating in a full scale production over a total of 10 days. The standard of work produced was incredible. Keep an eye out for our holiday workshops running at Christmas, Easter and in the summer holidays - the memories created on these weeks will last a lifetime
