We are WORLD RECORD HOLDERS! An amazing performance, an amazing achievement! Huge congratulations to all involved.

Crowd Pleasers!

Many thanks to all our wonderful parents who came down to our performance at the Oakwood Christmas Lights Switch on!

Enrol now for 2019 for more performance opportunities with us here at Stagecoach Roundhay

Emmerdale to Roundhay

We were delighted to welcome Sammy Winward to Stagecoach Roundhay in July to work with our Main Stages students. Sammy inspired our students by delivering acting for camera workshops and explaining all about her life on Emmerdale plus gave us hints and tips about life as a professional actor and shared a few soap secrets! What a fantastic week!

Amazing day in Harrogate

We were so proud of a group of Main Stages students who took to the stage at the stunning Royal Hall in Harrogate to participate in a celebration of song with Stagecoach schools from across the UK. They performed to a sell out audience alongside West End Star Ben Goddard. Join us now for more performance opportunities here at Stagecoach Roundhay!

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)
