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.

Principal - Adam Rood

Stagecoach has been a huge part of Adam's life from a very young age. Aged 9-14 he was a student at Stagecoach Southampton. Whilst completing his degree at the Guildford School of Acting (2005-2008), he started teaching singing at Stagecoach Kingston, where he remained for 5 years. During his time there he met Rosie Biggs (Principal of Stagecoach Crawley.) Following his departure from Stagecoach Kingston, he spent 5 years teaching at Stagecoach Leatherhead, a year as the singing teacher and four further years as the drama teacher.
Adam and Rosie bought Stagecoach Crawley in December 2014 and now own both Crawley and Horsham (or as one of the Crawley students pointed out... Stagecoach 'Crawsham'. Adam has taught at some of the UKs most prestigious drama schools and has worked with students aged 4-74. He has worked as an actor, director, composer, writer and teacher in more than 5,000 public performances. Adam and Rosie have two daughters, Gracie and Poppy and are thrilled that Stagecoach Horsham is now part of their family business.
