By Royal Appointment...

It was a great way to kick off our Autumn term, to receive a visit from royalty. Our lucky students had a workshop with Athena Collins who plays Catherine Parr in the tour of the award winning musical - Six! Athena is a member of our Dorking Alumni, and she was equally delighted to come back and visit.

Dance to the Music Tour

A team of students from our Dorking and Reigate schools got to share the stage with Kristina Rihanoff (Strictly Come Dancing), Jake Quickenden (X Factor) and a team of amazing dancers at The Capitol Theatre in Horsham this term.

Main Stages Exam Success

Congratulations to our Main Stages students who took part in our PAA, Musical Theatre Exams last term. The results are in, and are worth shouting about. Our students achieved a 100% pass rate and the lowest grade being a Pass with Merit, which reflects on all the hard work they put into their rehearsals.

Further Stages Success

Our Further Stages students recently took their Musical Theatre exams with Rock School and Performance Arts Awards, their final grades were all High Merits and Distinctions which reflected the great work they put in to their rehearsals. As a special treat they had a 'Hamilton Workshop' with Miriam-Teak Lee who played Angelica in the original cast.

Barricade Boys

On Sunday 19th May 34 of our Main Stages and Further Stages students took to the stage to perform as a choir for the Barricade Boys UK Tour. It was a night of pure entertainment and our talented students gave a wonderful performance and worked hard throughout their rehearsals to master the complex harmonies. Well done everyone!

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!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.
