Her Majesty's Theatre

Stagecoach Acton has regularly been invited to perform at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End. 20 students from our dance troupe took part in a very special musical celebration where family and friends attended on 12th March, 2017. We can't wait for our next invitation to perform again on the West End Stage.


We teach LAMDA Acting Solo Exams twice a year and we always have exceptional results. This Summer all students received a merit or distinction. Congratulations to all our students who entered this year at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Classes start this Autumn.


We are so excited to be taking part in an international celebration of Beauty and the Beast Jnr this Summer. We will be performing the show in a theatre and looking to break a Guinness World Record with Stagecoach schools across the world. We would love your child to participate, call Teresa on 0208 819 1399 for further information.


'The Principal’s leadership is very much child-centred. She is energetic and clearly passionate about giving her students the best possible opportunity to flourish in a safe and warm environment'. 'The quality of the singing was outstanding. The Early Stages teacher who led the rehearsal was warm, kind, funny, the children clearly loved her'.

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

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 nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is at an essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
