Stagecoach Rickmansworth

Welcome to Stagecoach Rickmansworth

If you are interested in our Saturday classes for ages 6yrs+, please visit our sister school Stagecoach Chorleywood.

We are a local, family run school providing high quality, part-time training in the performing arts to children aged 4-6 yrs and 6-18 years.  Our aim is to nurture and develop young potential through singing, acting and dance classes for children - stretching young imaginations, building confidence and life skills whilst always having lots of fun in our classes.  We perform regularly at Watersmeet, our schools and even in The West End!  We offer optional Lamda exams in Verse and Prose, Acting or Musical Theatre and we welcome all ages and abilities to our school. 

Our principal Kitty grew up in the local area and graduated in 2012 with an MA in Voice from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.  She has performed in the West End and taught drama and voice throughout the UK to children and young actors at drama school.  Kitty brings a wealth of knowledge and skills to ensure Stagecoach Rickmansworth is fully committed to providing an inspiring, creative education that consolidates and supports students academic life and development.  The school has a wonderful and committed team of teachers who have all trained in the Performing Arts.  Several have performed in the West End, on TV and in Film and are working in the industry at this time.  Others have focused on teaching, extending their skillet via MA’s, PGCE's, Lamda and ISTD qualifications. 

Students come to our school for many reasons.  Some have gone on to gain professional work and go to drama schools, whilst others prefer to focus on having fun, making new friends and developing their confidence and life skills.

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)

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is at an essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
