Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard

Welcome to Stagecoach Leighton Buzzard, which provides quality part-time performing arts training.

Our weekly classes on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings are taught by a wonderful team of dedicated, professional teachers, many with their own experience of performing, who are passionate about delivering engaging and enjoyable singing, acting and dance classes for children and young people of Leighton Buzzard and surrounding areas aged 4 to 18. We have a fantastic balance between education and fun, and have been lucky enough to offer our students plenty of performing opportunities, both within the school, and further afield in theatres such as Her Majesty’s in London, the Birmingham NEC and NIA, The Grove in Dunstable and Milton Keynes Theatre.

For a rewarding activity in a friendly environment where life skills such as confidence, creativity and communication flourish, look no further! Parents are invited to enrol their children in one of our Saturday morning theatre arts classes at Cedars Upper School.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Stagecoach family!

Meet The Team



We're opening a brand new Friday school in January! Classes available for 4-18 years (no experience necessary). Come and be one of the founding students of this school and make new friends whilst you learn how to sing, dance and act in a friendly, supportive environment. Places are limited so please don't delay in enrolling for a 2 week trial!

Madame Butterfly

Ellen Kent love having our students perform with them at their opera's at The Grove Theatre in Dunstable and this year we had so much fine doing Madame Butterfly. The students got to dress up as Geisha's whilst our little man from early stages got to play the part of "sorrow" and the production team said he was THE BEST Sorrow they'd ever had!

Performance Opportunity

Each year we get to perform at a prestigious theatre venue & for 2017 it was at The Waterside theatre in Aylesbury & for 2019 we are performing at the Shaftsbury Theatre in the West End. This will be an amazing experience for the children. Exciting!

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)

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is of the essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
