Stagecoach Halesowen

Welcome to Stagecoach Performing Arts Halesowen. By introducing children to dance, drama and singing our aim is to provide high quality part-time performance arts training for students of all abilities aged from 4 to 18 years in a fun, safe and professional environment.

Through the combination of an excellent performing arts education and by nurturing student’s natural abilities, we are privileged to see our students’ confidence grow as they develop both as individuals and as performers. Our lessons aim to inspire and broaden students horizons whilst encouraging them to find their Creative Courage for Life.

At Stagecoach Halesowen we thoroughly enjoy seeing students of all ages reach their maximum potential and succeed with personal aims; in addition to working with our DBS checked, multi discipline trained teachers and coaches we offer students the opportunity to work with industry professionals through our workshops and audition opportunities. We also offer students the opportunity to take Musical Theatre Examinations that  accrue UCAS points at higher levels.

During Stagecoach Halesowen’s 13 years students have performed many productions including ‘Annie Jr’, ‘Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr’, 'CATS', 'Camp Rock'' and ‘We Will Rock You’ to mention just a few - all helping students gain the skills and techniques required to help them on their way to fulfilling their dreams and ambitions within performing arts and beyond...

We look forward to welcoming you to Stagecoach Halesowen.

Noticeboard

NEW FOR AUTUMN 2017

We are pleased to announce from Autumn term 2017 Stagecoach Halesowen offers Main Stages students the opportunity to complete MUSICAL THEATRE EXAMINATIONS.

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.
