Further stages

We are delighted to announce that this Autumn term is the first for our Further Stages students. The start of what we believe to be a fantastically creative time of discovery and revelation. Further Stages is an opportunity for students to enjoy some freedom within their creative choices. To build a theatre company amongst themselves.

Event & Opportunities

Stagecoach Maidstone East aren't just a saturday school but a place of opportunity. Many of our students have performed in Disneyland Paris and Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End. We also offer Musical Theatre exams and run a Troupe each week for those that are extra eager. The fun never stops at Stagecoach.

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.
