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. We all came to Stagecoach with either our faces painted or wearing a Halloween accessory and everyone got to take home some Halloween treats.

Disneyland Paris-July 18

We took 50 of our students and their families to Disneyland Paris. It was magical, the students took part in Disney Workshops, met the characters, performed outside the Castle, rode the rides and the most amazing part was when they performed in the Pre-Parade. Our Principal was honoured to lead the parade and carry the Stagecoach Banner!

Early Stages

Here are some of our some of our lovely Early Stages Students for our Summer Term 2018. Our Early Stages have lots of fun in their sessions that run for 90 minutes alongside our Main School classes. We don't just teach them the skills in singing, dancing and acting, they also become more confident, more sociable and learn skills for life.

Sheffield City Hall

In March 2018 the whole of our Main School performed along side other Stagecoach Schools on stage at The Sheffield City Hall. The event was part of Stagecoach's 30th Birthday celebrations and also to raise money for the charity Home Start. We had a celebrity compare for the evening and we are already planning another big event for 2020!!!!

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!!

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)
