Godalming to West End

Huge congratulations to 18 of our Stagecoach Godalming students who took their amazing piece 'Defying Gravity' to the West End. Every single student performed with so much passion, energy and professionalism! What an incredible experience for them to be up on that West End stage, doing what they do best!

Early Stages Friendships!

Have you booked your place for our next term? We wanted to share with you one of our Friday Early Stages student's passport. She drew a gorgeous picture with all her friends at Stagecoach. Stagecoach Performing Arts Godalming is a fantastic place to make new friends and have lots of fun, whilst developing your drama, dance and singing skills.

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 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!

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.

Meet The Team

Principal - Grant Clarke

Grant was Principal of Stagecoach Staines for one year until his wife took up the position in 2007. Grant however has always had an active involvement as he is very passionate about performing arts. Living in the local Woking area, Grant feels this will also give him an advantage on entering the pupils into local competitions, theatre and generally bringing a more hands-on personal touch to the development of the students. As an actor himself, Grant has featured in the Bill, Doctors and a whole host of TV commercials including Royal Caribbean, Vodafone and Audi to name a few.
