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.

Amazing Event Performance

We were so proud of our fantastic students who took part in the Stagecoach Regional Event at the Victoria Hall Theatre in Stoke on Trent. Performing a medley of All That Jazz and Dirty Laundry our students brought the house down. Here's to many more events coming up next year!


How fantastic were our Stage 1 and 2 students who took part in the Thank Abba For the Music tribute show at the Stafford Gatehouse Theatre! They represented Stagecoach Stafford with great professionalism and performed alongside some great singers to a packed audience. It was noted how many parents were dancing in the aisles!

Events 2017!

We can't wait to start working on performances for two big national events coming up next term. In June we head for Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End and then to the Wolverhampton Grand in October...and then there is the little question of DISNEY LAND PARIS on the horizon!

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.
