Parent testimonial

"My son has gone from being shy to being much more outgoing. I think attending Stagecoach has not only sparked an interest in the performing arts but also made him a far more confident person in himself. I am grateful to Alex and Stagecoach for nspiring him and giving him the space and encouragement to grow into the person he is becoming."


Did you know that Stagecoach Halifax offers students the chance to take LAMDA exams? Students work with our professional coach to prepare their pieces and then perform in front of an examiner. These exams are a fantastic way to improve children's' confidence as well as expanding their skill set. Please contact us for more information.


We are so proud of our student William and his role of Prince Harry in the Crown (Netflix)! William has been attending Stagecoach Halifax for 5 years and says "Being part of The Crown was a thrilling experience that I'm very grateful for. It was a fantastic introduction into the industry I hope to be part of"! Well Done William on this success!!

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!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.
