Stagecoach North Devon

Here at Stagecoach North Devon we believe in the potential of every child, whether they’re destined for the spotlight or want to build their life skills we create a safe and supportive environment where everyone gets the chance to shine. Comprehensive training in the three performing arts disciplines of singing, dance and drama from our fabulous teaching team helps not only build performance skills but teaches our youngsters about the importance of teamwork, creativity and resilience (to name but a few!).
As Principal I feel privileged to be part of such an incredible journey, having previously taught drama for Stagecoach North Devon for over 6 years I’ve seen first hand the progress and positive impact Stagecoach has had on the lives of the dozens of students who’ve come through our doors. From the shy students who’ve built themselves up through our support and encouragement to the seasoned performers looking to refine their technique each individual is given the opportunity to exceed even their own expectations.
On top of our weekly classes we offer students the opportunity to take part in local performances (did you catch our choir at the Christmas lights?!), regional events and LAMDA exams – the possibilities are endless!
We pride ourselves in supporting the growth of each of our young performers, developing their confidence both on and off stage and helping them be unashamedly themselves. Join us today to start your Stagecoach journey and find your Creative Courage For Life.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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.

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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!

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
Our advanced musical theatre sessions 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.
