Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

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!

(3 hrs each week)

Meet The Team

Principal - Mandy Perry

Mandy has been leading the school as Principal since 2012 and absolutely loves being able to inspire her students through the performing arts and see the benefits of attending her classes. Her ‘role' before Stagecoach was flying the skies as Cabin Crew for 14 years, which involved many a drama! But she is happily now on solid ground and has enjoyed a spot of acting herself, having taken on roles in plays and shows over the years at The Dunstable Repertory Theatre, most recently as Beverly in ‘Abigail’s Party’ and Myra in ‘Hayfever'. Mandy has completed her Associate Diploma in Performing Arts (ADPA) to enable her to pass on her knowledge to the students at Stagecoach St. Albans. Her two children (Leo, 12 and Sienna, 10) have attended the school over the past 5 years, so she can see first-hand the positive impact Stagecoach has on children! Her identical twin sister Liz has also been a Principal of Stagecoach since 2004, so it really is part of her family! Previous presentations at the school have included: CATS, Oklahoma, Peter Pan, Hansel & Gretel, Breaking News, Splash, Billy No Buzz and many more! So come and be part of the fun and let your Stagecoach journey begin!
