Early Stages

Early Stages theme is "A Spoonful of Sugar" We will be entering the magnificent world of magic and mystery where just about anything is possible. There will be music, dance and each week will be practically perfect in every way, We'll be dancing on rooftops and of coarse a little Chimney sweeping too. It's going to be supercalifragilistic!!

Main Stages

This Summer Show term Main Stages will be Following the Yellow Brick road on their adventure to finding their way home. Our Main Stages students will be performing their biggest show since "Beauty & the Beast" with rainbows, Ruby Slippers, a click of the heel and plenty of courage. It's going to be wonderfully whimsical!

Stage 3

This Summer show Term Stage 3 Main School students have a little something extra in store. They will be treating parents to a phenomenal performance of "Stagecoach Will Rock You." It's time for our Bohemians to make some noise, create a little Ga Ga and Break Free!!


This March our Troupe students performed at the very prestigious "Her Majesty's Theatre" in London. They spent the entire day in the real life of a west end performer, taking part in tech runs, dress runs and finally an outstanding performance. To top it of our students received the Backstage Star award for their superb professionalism. Wow!

PAA Exams

Stagecoach Maidstone East have successfully passed every exam taken with Performing Arts Awards. We are over the moon with the results and are very proud of our students for exceeding with Merits and Distinctions.


In July 2018 we took 8 of our students on a fantastic trip to 'Dance the Dream' at Disneyland Paris. They walked the Disney Pre-Parade and opened the park singing "Be our Guest" in front of the Disney castle, and were even joined by Beauty & the Beast themselves. This was with another 500 Stagecoach students from around the world. Amazing!!

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.
