Stagecoach Hykeham

A warm welcome to you all from the team at Stagecoach Hykeham (in Lincoln), where we're keen to share the enjoyment of performing with you all. We provide part time training in the theatre arts for children aged 4-18 years, allowing out students to sing, dance and act their way to a more confident self. We provide a strong combination of learning and performing, with a wide variety of opportunities for everyone. We like to get creative and some of our past performances include: Performing for the Mayor of Lincoln, 'Fame Junior!', Performing at Her Majesty's Theatre in London and much much more!

The Autumn term runs from September to December and is our 'Demonstration Term'. The Main School will be exploring new dance styles and comedy acting, whilst our Early Stages students will be visiting the decades in a time machine!  We will give a demonstration of work to families and finish the term with a 'Bring a Buddy' day.

To get involved, and to enrol for this term, call Principal Kat on 01522 690580.

Stagecoach Hykeham perform 'Searching for Neverland' at Her Majesty's Theatre in London'.

West End Success!

Our oldest students gave a fantastic performance in London's West End, at Her Majesty's Theatre along with 10 other Stagecoach Schools back in March. Hykeham performed 'Finding Neverland' and received very high praise from Head Office for their wonderful performance! Photographs coming soon!


Our Summer Workshop was a huge success! For 6-18 years olds this 3-day workshop was designed to inspire those with a zest for performing! Based on the hit film 'The Greatest Showman' students got the chance to sing, dance, and act, try circus skills and have a professional photo shoot. The workshop ended with a performance for family and friends.

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)
