Stagecoach Eastbourne

Welcome to Stagecoach Eastbourne!
We have been providing high quality part-time training in the performing arts for children of 4 to 18 years of age for almost 20 years. Every student, every week, spends one hour in each of the 3 disciplines; dance, drama and singing -- working with highly trained staff and industry professionals. Children really do learn skills for life at Stagecoach Eastbourne -- confidence, stamina, resilience, vocal projection, articulation and communication skills. Our classes are a LOT of fun and are the perfect way to nurture a child’s imagination.

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)

Principal - Nick Larkin

Nick had an intense musical background routed in singing, piano and violin. He gained a place at the Guildford School of Acting at the tender age of 18, where he trained for 3 years, graduating with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Musical Theatre.

After graduating Nick spent a short chapter of his life working as an actor, playing roles such as 'Schlomo' in the National tour of Fame and 'Brujon' in Les Miserables in Concert. He did however, quickly realise acting wasn't really his calling and has since become a Musical Director. Nick has worked at many of the country's leading Drama Schools inc. Arts Ed, Sylvia Young and GSA as an MD and singing coach.

Musical Directing Credits include; Little Shop of Horrors, Fiddler on The Roof, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, ‘i’, This Too Shall Pass, Cabaret, Sideshow, Talk of The Town, Daydream Believer (World Premier), Payback the Musical – Riverside, Hammersmith, MD and Choir Master on West End Men – Vaudeville and Carnival.

Nick has worked at many Stagecoaches across the south of England and is extremely passionate about the confidence and joy that performing arts can bring into young people’s lives. He is very proud to be the Principal of Stagecoach Eastbourne.
