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)

Meet The Teachers

Principal - Louise Winstone, MA in Education, PGCE, BA(Hons),NCDT

Louise has worked with Stagecoach since 1996. She has been the drama teacher at both Stevenage and Letchworth, was a managing teacher for Stagecoach Charitable Trust managing and teaching at their InterAct special educational needs workshops in Luton and ran one the regional choirs.   Her passion as a teacher is only matched by her passion for directing. Louise directed the award winning Stagecoach Stevenage and Letchworth Drama Troupe.  She now loves her role as the Principal at Stevenage. 
 
Alongside her over 20 years of teaching, Louise has had an extensive and varied career on the stage and in film and television. She was a regular writer/performer in London's irreverent and politically satirical "News Revue" and a performer/choreographer with Abstracts Dance Company. She is an experienced director and has adapted many works for the stage. Hand in hand with her acting, she was also heavily involved with corporate role-play in the NHS and with the training of senior solicitors. 
 
Louise moved in mainstream primary education and over the past 4 years she has become increasingly involved Healthy Schools and Well-being.  She gained distinction for her MA in Education, writing extensively about the use of role-play and experiential learning to deepen understanding and develop writing skills in primary schools.
