Stagecoach Battersea and Balham

The children at the Stagecoach School in Battersea enjoy an extraordinary range of performance opportunities! Micky has five young children and in addition to Stagecoach heads up The Wonderland Committee which is an organisation committed to raising funds for Children In Crisis. This charity gives London children the chance to perform in support of children less fortunate than themselves. Stagecoach Battersea has performed 'High Tea & Fashion' at the Dorchester Hotel for a children's charity fashion show. They've also done 'All about Matilda' and 'Winter Wonderland' at theatres in London just to mention a few.

Musical Theatre parties

Stagecoach offers brilliant parties for children and teens! Put on a Show with our amazing party hosts … you choose the theme/songs/musical, and we'll put on a show with all of your friends just in time for friends and family to come and watch! It's the best fun party … and we put on a show!

Murder Mystery Parties

This is an outstanding party idea for children and teens from 11 - 18 years! We send a detective, you and your guests play the leading roles and during the course of a three course meal (that you provide) … a murder is solved! Parties can take place in your home or at a venue/restaurant of your choice!

Our schools are all closed for the time being … but the shows will go on … and we'll be in touch as soon as we know more! Stay safe and well, Micky & the Stagecoach Battersea team xx

Summer Camp 27-31 July

OUR STAGECOACH PERFORMING ARTS SUMMER CAMP WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 27 - 31 JULY AT BALHAM BAPTIST CHURCH, 21 RAMSDEN ROAD, SW12 8QX! We're super excited to be able to run small, but perfectly creative classes in movement, acting, musical staging and film craft all based on a host of musical theatre and movie hits! Class size is 15 max.

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

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. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

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 of the 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!
