Stagecoach Gloucester

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Performing Arts Gloucester, where we offer quality classes in singing, dancing and acting for children aged 4-18yrs. We believe in adaptable teaching to suit your child's needs - being fully inclusive to everyone. This might be advanced performance skills, exploring new skills or building confidence through an enthusiastically supportive team. Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential, stretching imaginations and building confidence. Our children perform publicly at least twice a year. We offer accredited examinations and further opportunities to perform in the local community and even in the West End. 

Come and join the fun!

We are INCREDIBLY PROUD to announce that after auditioning earlier this Summer our very own Eaden has been cast as the new voice of Tracker in PAW PATROL! A few of our Stagecoach boys were asked to audition and the feedback we have had from the casting agent was brilliant. We are so proud of Eaden and can’t wait to HEAR him in action very soon!

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!

Meet The Team

Principal - Kate Ridley-Holloway

Kate started her Stagecoach journey as a teenager at her local Stagecoach Performing Arts school. Her love for everything dramatic soon cemented an ambition for a career in the arts and this led to her Stagecoach journey never really ending! After spending a few years in training and performing in tours and shows, Kate returned to work as a Dance Teacher for Stagecoach Tiverton and various other South-West schools. During this time, she completed her teaching qualifications and gained invaluable experience working alongside other Principals before taking on her own school in 2014. Kate became Principal of Stagecoach North Devon and led the school for 7 amazing years until moving to Gloucestershire in 2021. This is when her Stagecoach Gloucester story began! Kate brings a wealth of experience and passion to the school with the students and teaching team being at the heart of it all.
