Stagecoach Maidstone East

Performing Arts School for 4-18 years.

Stagecoach Performing 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!

Main Stages

This Spring term our Main Stages students are going PINK with some very current music that we all know and love. Our Dolls will also be joined by their teachers this term as their TEACHERS DO STAGECOACH! Our very own coaches will be showing us how it's done as they join us on stage for an end of term talent bonanza.

Early Stages

This Spring term our little ones will become world famous Pop and Rock stars as they create the biggest band in Stagecoach history. The spotlight is on our superstars this term and we cannot wait to be dazzled by those Early stages divas.

The orchard Theatre

This year our students performed their amazing Aladdin medley at His Majesty's Theatre London and it was a huge success. We couldn't wait any longer for the next challenge, we are now signed up to perform the enticing Encanto at The orchard Theatre in June 2024. Rehearsals are under way and it's looking incredible already. HERE WE COME ORCHARD!

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.
