Beauty & the Beast

On Sunday 1st July the student from Stagecoach Dorking took to the stage in a Guinness World Record Breaking attempt for the the largest simultaneous performance of one show in multiple locations. It was a fantastic event and we couldn't have been prouder of everyone who took part.

Time to Shine

To celebrate Stagecoach's 30th Anniversary our Early Stages took to the Dorking Halls stage in their very own show stopping performance for their friends and family. It was a superb performance by our little performers!

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.
