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)

Meet The Teachers

Principal - Hannah Kirkpatrick- BA(Hons)

Hannah began her journey with Stagecoach at the age of fourteen, when she became a student at the Burton upon Trent school. Inspired by the classes and with a passion for all areas of the performing arts, Hannah then went on to gain a BA(Hons) in Drama from The University of Hull, before graduating from The Bridge Theatre Training Company with a postgraduate diploma in Acting. Since then, Hannah has continued to work as a professional actress, as well as returning to Stagecoach as drama teacher at Ashby de la Zouch. Now the Principal of both the Burton and Ashby schools, she aims to help each and every student achieve their own personal goals and find the confidence and inspiration that she found as a student at Stagecoach.
