Stagecoach Cirencester

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Cirencester! We believe that the whole world is a stage and here at Stagecoach Cirencester we give every child the opportunity to learn valuable skills to help them through every stage of their life.

We are proud to offer weekly Acting, Dancing and Singing classes for children aged 4-18 years, which help to improve skills and techniques, build confidence, stretch imagination and develop creativity. We are a happy and thriving school, and our team of professional teachers and our high expectations of students help us to achieve fantastic results whilst at the same time having fun.

Our children put on fabulous productions and have performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall, Shaftesbury Avenue Theatre in London and have formed part of the choir in the National Tour of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

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.

Meet The Team

Principal - Anne Pain

Anne has sung since she was very little and enjoyed performing throughout her school life in shows such as My Fair Lady and gaining Grade 8 ABRSM in both Singing and Piano. She gained her BA Hons degree in Music at Bishop Grosseteste College, Lincoln, with qualified teaching status, and during this time, enjoyed organising events as part of her job as President of the Music Society. She was part of a steel band, which took her to many exciting places, including Lithuania, and even undertook a bit of fire walking!
A few years later, she continued her studies by completing an MA in Education. As well as running Stagecoach Cirencester, Anne also has a busy private practice, teaching singing to children and adults of all ages.
Anne has a huge passion for the Performing Arts and loves seeing the children's confidence, skills and creativity grow every week.
