Stagecoach Colwyn Bay

Welcome to Stagecoach Colwyn Bay, where we provide quality part-time performing arts training for children and teenagers aged 4 to 18 years. 
Stagecoach Colwyn Bay has been nurturing talent and potential in young people since 2003 and aims to encourage and develop key life skills in all students, such as confidence, communication and collaboration. Stagecoach Colwyn Bay offers fully inclusive weekly classes in Drama, Dance and Singing for all ages and abilities, which stretch, challenge and support all students individually.

Stagecoach Colwyn Bay has a jam packed itinerary of annual events including a full length musical production at Theatre Colwyn every spring, an awards demonstration every summer and LAMDA examinations every autumn, as well as a variety of additional local events, festivals and trips.

We believe that whatever path our students follow in their life they will always rely on the skills, learning and progress they made at Stagecoach; it doesn't stop when the curtain falls - this is for #creativecourageforlife.

Annie Jr!!

On 7th July 2019 our students gave two jaw dropping performances of Annie Jr at Theatr Colwyn. We had a double cast of almost all of the principal roles to ensure all students were challenged appropriately & had their chance to shine! The skills our students develop at Stagecoach don't disappear when the curtain falls; they're skills for life!

2020 - Year of Confidence

Our main aim at Stagecoach is to give every child the opportunity to develop their key life skills, whilst also exercising, socialising and having fun; so wait no more, give your child the gift of confidence this year! #creativecourageforlife

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)
