Skills term

This term our students are working on developing and honing their skills in each discipline. Drama is focusing on physical theatre whilst singing and dance are learning show numbers and perfecting skills. Early stages are working on their skills whilst exploring well known children's stories and learning new choreography and songs! A full term!

Summer workshop

Applications are being taken for our summer workshop! We have a circus themed one for ages 4-6 called 'Summer fun' and a show called 'Not Remotely Interested' for ages 6-18, which has been written just for Stagecoach Macclesfield and is full of well known songs!

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)
