Noticeboard

Kuldip - Former Student

"I started my time at stagecoach in 1999 when I was 5 and continued till I was 15. Stagecoach gave me not only the opportunity to learn about the dramatic arts but also enhanced my confidence and skills for life. No matter what direction you take in life, the skills acquired at Stagecoach are great as a foundation for any situation."

Katie - Student

I joined Stagecoach Medway when I was 6 and loved every minute. The teachers gave me the confidence and a platform to pursue a career in the performing arts. Whilst at Stagecoach I performed in local pantomimes and leaving I have performed in many West End shows - Matilda, Billy Elliot and Les Mis. I am currently in Busy Malone.

"I just wanted to let you know how much we (and our supporting team of 5 others) enjoyed the show on Saturday. The children of all stages were amazing and so brave. I don’t mind admitting it brought a tear or two my eyes! They so obviously love what they do and they have such a great leadership team to get them through it. Well done to all of them"

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.
