Stagecoach Stafford and Stone

Stagecoach Stafford offers a fun and safe environment where your child can learn core life skills whilst practicing Dance, Drama and Singing. In our engaging weekly classes, we aim to inspire your child, help to build their confidence and learn all about the performing arts. 
Our teachers and students are in an atmosphere that is fun, supportive and very positive. We have been involved in countless performances over the years with highlights being our High School Musical performance at the Stafford Gatehouse theatre, which gave all our students, aged 4 to 16, the opportunity to perform in a professional theatre in front of over 400 friends and family.

Events 2018

We have so many events coming up in the new year, which our Stagecoach students are taking part in. In February we are off to THE GRAND THEATRE, Blackpool to perform in a national Stagecoach event and then in April, our Senior dance troupe will be performing at THE SHAFTESBURY THEATRE in London's West End. See below for so much more we are doing!

Come to Disney Land Paris

As a Stagecoach student you can join us for a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform at Disney Land, Paris in July 2018. We embark late July for a four day trip, dancing in the Pre-Parade, singing outside the castle, taking part in workshops, a gala evening with Disney characters not to mention all the rides and studio visits you can manage.

Beauty and the Beast

In July next year, Stagecoach Stafford and Stone, along with hundreds of other Stagecoach schools around the world, will be attempting a Guinness Book of Records attempt by staging the musical Beauty and the Beast simultaneously. This is going to be brilliant experience for our students and we are building to this event over the Spring term.

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.
