Early Stages Perform!

Our amazing Early Stages students were fantastic as they performed as part of the first national Stagecoach Early Stages event at the Cresset Theatre in Peterborough. The students were treated to a storytelling workshop before the main performance and they certainly wowed the audience. Call now to see how your child could benefit from our classes!

Stagecoach Thame Success!

Some of our older students went to the Milton Keynes Festival of the Arts for Dance, Music and Drama on Sunday 19th February. Our solo students Megan and Hester got a first, two seconds and a third while the Advance Drama Troupe were awarded the festival trophy for Dramatic Scene from a Published Play! Well done all - we are very proud!

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)

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is at an essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!

Meet The Teachers

Principal - Nicky Goodwin

Nicky has been involved with Stagecoach for around ten years. Her first introduction to Stagecoach was as a parent. One of her sons showed an interest and a flair for performing, so she went along to her local Stagecoach School, and nine years later he is still there along with his younger sister. Nicky began to work at Stagecoach Oxford as a volunteer parent helper while they were organising a Charity Show in the New Theatre. This role then developed and she has experienced working in many of the roles within a Theatre School. It is very exciting for Nicky to have her own school now, and she hopes to give students a place to come and have fun, be creative and gain the skills not only for the performing arts but also for life!
