Students Perform in the West End
In June 2015, students from our Performing Arts School will take to the stage at The Shaftesbury Theatre in the heart of the West End. This will be the third time students have performed in the West End and we cannot wait for this incredible experience. 20 lucky students from our Theatre School will perform an ‘Austin Powers’ themed extravaganza to a packed house of hundreds and the memories of the day will no doubt last a lifetime!

Stagecoach Trowbridge and Frome goes to Disneyland Paris
Children and teenagers from Stagecoach will travel to Disneyland Paris in July 2015 to perform onstage in the Main Disney Theatre AND dance in the pre-parade through the Disney Park. The girls 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 and Frome 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 to perform there a second time.

Stagecoach Trowbridge and Frome performed Horrible Histories
In March 2015, Stagecoach Trowbridge and Frome performed an exclusive version of the brilliant Horrible Histories show, Groovy Greeks! The schools were lucky enough to perform this before the professional show began its tour of the UK so we could say we were one of the first casts to premiere the show!

Further Stages coming soon in September 2015
From September 2015, students aged 15-19 years will be invited to join Further Stages. These advanced musical theatre sessions will give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills. Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. There will also be opportunities to work towards a diploma in musical theatre.

Mini Stages (2 - 4 years)
We are delighted to introduce our 'Mini Stages' classes, starting after May half term 2015 - drama, singing and movement classes for 2 - 4 year olds! Our mini classes are a fun and exciting way for you and your child to actively experience the performing arts in a comfortable, relaxing and safe environment. 'Mini Stages' allows children to explore creativity, imagination, movement and curiosity.
