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)

Principal - Penny Calardo

Penny Calardo has been married for 36 years and has two adult daughters who are both active within the School. She has supported them both in their musical and performing arts studies and the youngest graduated from The Italia Conti Theatre Arts School in London, so she is well versed in supporting children in the pursuit of a career within the profession. Penny has worked with children within the local schools, helping behind the scenes at their musical and theatre performances, including numerous trips to the Welsh Eistedfodds. She has also featured in TV commercials and a film produced by Mick Jagger ('Enigma' 2001). 
Penny opened Stagecoach Kettering in April 2004 and her passion for the school continues to grow week by week and she wishes every day could be a Saturday.
