London's West End!

Students who attend our extra rehearsals for special events join our Stagecoach Performance Company and work like a mini professional theatre company. In 2018, 18 students performed in London on Sunday 24th June to perform an excerpt from "A Waste of Space" at Her Majesty's Theatre alongside fellow Stagecoach students from around the UK!

Main school students from aged 8yrs got the chance to perform at The Birmingham Symphony Hall to perform alongside fellow Stagecoach students from around the world on 1st July! This special event marked Stagecoach's 30th Anniversary where over 200 Stagecoach schools performed Beauty and The Beast simultaneously to break a Guinness World Record!

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.
