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.

(90 minutes each week)

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!

Meet The Team

Principal - Caroline McCrink - BA (Hons) Degree in Theatre Arts

Caroline's love of the Performing Arts began when she attended a part-time theatre school as a child. She studied drama, dancing and singing, along with the L.A.M.D.A. syllabus, and she was lucky enough to be cast in TV roles. Later Caroline went on to graduate with a Leeds university B.A. Honours Degree in Theatre Arts. Initially she taught in a series of Theatre in Education programmes in primary schools throughout the UK. Then, as an actress, Caroline performed in National Tours and in Repertory theatre including a season at Chichester Festival Theatre in both the Main House and Minerva, in a variety of leading roles, including Cathy in 'Wuthering Heights', Olivia in 'Twelfth Night' and Emily Bronte in 'The Glass Town Confederacy'. For many years Caroline has been working for Artist Management companies in the music industry but she finds her role of Principal at Stagecoach Chertsey the most rewarding as it gives her the opportunity to work alongside her creative team and share her enduring passion for the Performing Arts.
