Her Majesty's Theatre

I was so proud of all the Students we took to perform at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End of London in November last year. It was an incredible opportunity for the students to really get a taste of what it is like to perform in a professional show in the West End. Amazing!!

Disneyland Paris

In July 2016 we took 51 of our students and their families to Disneyland Paris. It was a magical trip, the students took part in Disney Workshops, met the characters, performed outside the Disney Castle, rode the rides and the most amazing part was when they performed in the Pre-Parade too!! I am very excited that we are going again this year!!

Halloween at Stagecoach

We had lots of Halloween fun at Stagecoach Southwell. Our Early Stages sang and danced to lots of Halloween music and had a spooky story. Our Main Stages got to do a 'Thriller Style' workshop. We all came to Stagecoach with either our faces painted or wearing a Halloween accessory and everyone got to take home some Halloween treats.

These are our lovely Main School Students.

Early Stages

Here are some of our lovely Early Stages students travelling on their magic carpet off on another exciting adventure to a magical land. I wonder where they were going this time?

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)
