Stagecoach Milton Keynes East

“Of course, as well as building confidence, people can still find their way into the profession; what we give is the chance for our students to perform to the best of their abilities and go on to fulfil their potential in all walk of life, not just on the stage.”

Stagecoach MK East is proud to offer a full and rounded education, teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imaginations through singing, acting and dancing.

All our schools receive regular independent inspections; our most recent reports: “Well run school; activities are pacey, challenging and age-related. Fun had by all. Teachers work hard to ensure equality of opportunities for all students within performance.”

“We introduced her to Stagecoach to try to help her gain some confidence and self-belief – we had no idea just how far she would come!” Mrs Brookman, Milton Keynes.

Stagecoach Milton Keynes East is based in Woburn Sands. For details of our sister school in Stony Stratford visit www.stagecoach.co.uk/miltonkeynes

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)

Principal - Sue Beard - BA(Hons) Music PGC in Radio, Film & TV

"Running Stagecoach MK East is a joy; I get to work with dedicated teachers, who create a buzzing atmosphere where students continue to thrive". 
 
Sue taught singing at some of the very first Stagecoach Schools in the late 80's and is still Singing Coach at Stagecoach in Stony Stratford when she is not running Woburn Sands. An accomplished singer and pianist, Sue gained a music degree from York University before taking a postgraduate media course at Bristol University. She toured much of the world as an actress/musician before taking a 'proper job' at the BBC. Initially employed behind the cameras, Sue soon started appearing on-screen as a singer/songwriter and comedy actress in TV programmes throughout the 80's & 90's and carved out a niche for herself on the Live Alternative Comedy Circuit. 
 
" It was through my comedy career that I met my husband, Bob, at The Edinburgh Festival. We later set up Stagecoach in Milton Keynes and have had the pleasure of seeing it continue to grow both in reputation and in student numbers". 
 
Under Sue's vocal direction, hundreds of Stagecoach students have sung in professional roles at Milton Keynes Theatre, notably in SOUTH PACIFIC, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG and JOSEPH and others have enjoyed West End roles, recently in THE LION KING and OLIVER!
 
"Of course, as well as building confidence, people can still find their way into the profession; what we give is the chance for our students to perform to the best of their ability and go on to fulfil their potential in all walks of life, not just on the stage."
