Stagecoach Thame

Welcome to Stagecoach Thame where we provide quality part-time performance arts training to children and young adults aged 4-18yrs.

Creative courage for life is the foundation of our teaching and learning here at Stagecoach Thame.

We believe that performing arts offers a multitude of transferable skills so that no matter if your child is a Westend star of the future or is just looking to have fun and make friends they can achieve whatever they desire throughout their time at Stagecoach.

Stagecoach Thame has grown from a small school of 28 students to one that now educates over 200 students each week. Our highly experienced teachers will encourage and support all students to discover new talents, develop life skills and embrace education in a fun and exciting environment.

At Stagecoach Thame we offer a mixture of training and performance based opportunities, we also offer extra training with Dance Troupe, Choir and Musical Theatre International Troupe. We love to give our students every opportunity possible to develop their skills.

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.
