The aim of Stagecoach is to increase the self-esteem and confidence of its students by having fun and encouraging them to take part in as many opportunities as possible. All students are included in performances held during the year, enjoying the experience of performing to family and friends to increase their development.

It's show term!

It's a very exciting term this term for the Main School and Early Stages students as they rehearse hard for their production of Disney's High School Musical. Our fully costumed show will run at The Barrington Theatre and we are very excited. We think it's going to be our best yet!

If you go into the Woods

Our amazing Further Stages students are starting work on their annual show, which this year will be their own interpretation of "Into the Woods" entitled "Into the New Forest" Come along and see them perform on 30th June at The Hub in Verwood.

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.
