Stagecoach Nantwich

Welcome to Stagecoach Nantwich. We provide tuition in dance, drama and singing for children and teenagers aged 4 - 18 years and over the last 12 years have helped thousands of local children reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on offering well organised, fun and stimulating classes delivered by an experienced and highly skilled team of teachers, in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our classes help develop confidence, communication skills and articulation – as well as being educational and fun. Our students have opportunities to perform in local, regional and national theatres, take part in professional tours or take part in films or TV shows.

Our aim is to bring the performing arts in to the lives of all children and show them that anything is possible if you work hard and reach for the stars.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

Beauty & the Beast Jr

On Sunday 1st July our students took part in a Guinness World Record attempt with Stagecoach schools from all over the world and gave 2 fantastic performances of Beauty & the Beast Jr for their audiences at the Crewe Lyceum theatre.

Gotta Sing 2018

Our students took part in Gotta Sing 2018 at the Crewe Lyceum theatre in June and, along with other local children from schools and choirs, put on a great show for their audience. Our students performed a Beauty and the Beast medley and gave everyone a taster of what is to come on 1st July.


Here's what one of our parents from Stagecoach Nantwich had to say about the benefits of attending Stagecoach.

Opera Boys Performance

Our students gave another outstanding performance at the Crewe Lyceum theatre on Sunday 27th May when they performed alongside The Opera Boys as part of their national tour. Our students performed numbers from Matilda and The Greatest Showman as well as accompanying the classically trained tenors for two songs.


We offer all our students the opportunity to study for the prestigious LAMDA exams and have always enjoyed excellent results with a 100% pass rate. LAMDA is one of the UK’s oldest and most respected awarding bodies and have offered practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 130 years.

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.

Principal - Adele Fowell

Adele has been involved in Stagecoach for over 12 years first teaching at the Stone, Stafford and Congleton Stagecoach schools for a number of years before becoming Principal of Stagecoach Nantwich 6 years ago.

Her love for performing arts began when she took her first ballet class at just 3 years old, with her first professional performance following at the age of 7. She then went on to work professionally as a dancer and also performed in many local amateur dramatic and operatic productions.

In 2004 she left her career as a paramedic and returned to the world of performing arts, first completing her teacher training and then joining the Stagecoach network as an Early Stages teacher, whilst also working as a specialist performing arts coach, working with students with disabilities and learning difficulties.

Adele is now dedicated to passing on her passion for the performing arts to a new generation of children, helping them grow as individuals and supporting and guiding them and their parents during their time with her and her  teachers at Stagecoach Nantwich.
