Stagecoach Maidstone East

Performing Arts School for 4-18 years.

Stagecoach Theatre Arts Maidstone East offer singing, dance and drama classes for children ages 4 - 18 years.

We believe that the whole world is a stage and the skills children learn at Stagecoach Maidstone East will help them at school, university and in their future careers. 

We provide children with the opportunity to participate in all three performing arts disciplines - drama, dance and singing - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and lots of fun.

Open every weekend during term time and workshops during the school holidays, come join the fun!

Summer Term Dates TBC

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Stagecoach have been closely following government guidelines. The government have asked that all schools close until further notice and we will be following suit. The safety of all our students is of the utmost of importance. As soon as we are able, Stagecoach will resume as normal with much to look forward to.

Two Week Trial

Try Singing, Dancing & Acting Classes. Children and teens are welcome to try our singing, dancing and acting classes during a two week trial – a great way to settle in and discover all that Stagecoach has to offer. A two week trial costs £25 for Early Stages (4-6 year olds) and £50 for Main Stages (6-18 year olds) - enrol below.

Early Stages

This Spring Term our Early Stages dreams will be coming true. Every student can become whatever they wish, singer, dancer, comedian, magician, Popstar and more. Let's build on our imaginations and the sky will be the limit. Would you like to sing like Elsa? Dance like your on strictly? This is the term to do to all. Let's enjoy the magic!

Main Stages

This Spring term our Main Stages will be covering many legendary musicals, people, books, fairytales and much more. We want to celebrate the best out there and be inspired by the legends themselves. So much to explore, so much to learn and so much fun to be had.

Further Stages

Our Further Stages are very excited to start their rehearsals of "Lawfully Blonde" this Spring Term. Everything from Harvard Law, Vogue, Chihuahua's and of coarse, a very determined Blonde. It's going to be epic!

Musical Theatre Exams

This spring term we are offering the opportunity for our students to take part in Musical Theatre group exams with the very prestigious Rock School - Performing Arts Awards. Last year we were very proud of our students after they had great success, receiving all Merits and Distinctions.

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.
