Stagecoach Bicester

At Stagecoach Bicester, we truly believe that a child’s involvement in the performing arts ignites their imagination and creativity. Children receive lessons in singing, dancing and acting delivered by our team of committed practitioners who have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share. It is a place where children have every opportunity to flourish, develop and try new things.

Bicester Stagecoach runs on Saturday mornings at Brookside Primary School in the centre of town.  For more information or to arrange a two week trial please contact us.

Guinness Book of Records!

All of our students from Early Stages to Stage 3 will be taking part in our performance of Beauty and the Beast in July 2018. This performance is part of a national Stagecoach attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records by having the most performances of a production at the same time! We are very excited.

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.
