Stagecoach Tiverton

Stagecoach Tiverton was established in 2005 and founding Principal Lisa Isaac feels priviliged to be still encouraging local youngsters to harness and unleash their potential, imagination and talent. Our class sizes are kept deliberately small so our students can expect individual attention from teachers with a wealth of professional industry experience in acting, directing, choreography and singing. Every student is encouraged to reach their full potential and our classes also help build confidence, self esteem. Self expression and essential life skills are gained through learning a variety of musical theatre skills and having a whole lot of FUN!

Weekly Classes

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!
