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)

Principal - Lauren Moore

Principal Lauren is very excited to be taking over as the new principal. She has been involved with Stagecoach for 8 years and has had wonderful roles; Early Stages teacher, Dance and Drama Teacher, and Deputy Principal. Lauren feels these various roles have given her valuable experience to really capture the Stagecoach motto, ‘Creative Courage for Life’.

Leaving school at 17 Lauren trained at the Margaret Howard Theatre College where she gained a Diploma in Musical Theatre and ISTD teaching qualifications in Tap and Modern. Lauren has been very fortunate to have had wonderful performing opportunities; such as joining the company of the ‘MSC Musica Cruise Ship’ whilst at college, as well as promotional appearances for ‘Capezio’, ‘GMTV’ and ‘This Morning’.

Lauren graduated Margaret Howard Theatre College and went on to perform in various musicals, plays and pantomimes. These include ‘The Full Monty’ (The Compass Theatre & The Rhodes Art Complex) and ‘Hello Mr Capello’ (The Watford Palace Theatre). Lauren was also one of the dancers in Twenty Twenty’s music video ‘Get down’. Lauren furthered her education and gained a First Class honours degree at The University of Bedfordshire in Performing Arts.

Alongside performing Lauren has worked with children and adults with physical and learning
disabilities, both in schools and extra curricular capacities.

Lauren continues her commitment to education of children and young adults through her work in a local secondary school and Stagecoach Stevenage.
