Stagecoach Hinchley Wood are always seeking opportunities for the students to perform! Performing publicly allows students valuable experience, while boosting confidence and - of course - having a great time! Our students are excited to be performing at The Dittons Fair on Sunday 7th May 2017.

Summer Workshops

We are excited to announce that we will be running two workshops. Put On A Show (Monday 24 - Friday 28 July 2017) and Just Dance (Monday 31 July - Friday 4 August 2017). Both workshops are great fun and finish with a performance for family and friends.

Her Majesties

A group of Stage 3 students are very excited to be performing at Her Majesties Theatre in November 2017, this will be our third performance at this beautiful venue.

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.
