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!

Dorking Halls Show

It was a night of pure entertainment when all our students from Early Stages, Main Stages and Further Stages took to the Dorking Halls stage in their 3rd full school production of 'In the Spotlight'! Not only did our students perform their hearts out and amazed audiences with their talents, the audience had a great time too. Well done everyone :)

West End Success!

Our performance troupe made their West End Debut on Sunday 25th November in 'Stagecoach Live' at Her Majesty's Theatre, home of Phantom of the Opera. 18 of our troupe performed a fantastic Sister Act Medley to close the first half of the show to a fabulous applause. The whole day was a huge success and we couldn't have been prouder of our students.

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.
