Stagecoach Rickmansworth

A very warm welcome to Stagecoach Rickmansworth.  Classes run on Fridays in Crxoley Green, Rickmansworth.

If you are interested in our Saturday weekend classes, please visit our sister school Stagecoach Chorleywood.

We are a friendly, family run school providing high quality, caring, part-time training in the performing arts to children aged 4-6 yrs and 6-18 years. We nurture and develop young potential through singing, acting and dance classes - stretching young imaginations, building confidence and life skills whilst always aiming to make the weekend a real hilight for our students.   We support our students to find themselves, feel confident, empowered and inspired by all we do.  All ages and abilities are assured a very warm welcome at our school. No experience necessary!

Alongside nurturing our students, we are a performing school and each year we host a musical show at Watersmeet, a Christmas show at our schools, demos for parents, plus some of our older students perform in the West End!  We are proud to be a busy, establised Lamda Centre offering optional exams for ages 5yrs+ as well as one to one singing lessons and run a free street dance crew as well.  We also partner with Disneyland Paris and perform there in the summer.

Our teachers are all trained performers who are passionate about teaching and combine their own performing careers with nurturing and inspiring our wonderful students - some attended Stagecoach when they were younger too, others have been on TV, film and in the West End.  We would love to welcome your family and we thank you for finding us.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

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.

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!

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.
