Stagecoach Uttoxeter has been providing quality part-time training in singing, dancing and acting for over 10 years. As part of the UK's largest network of children's part time performing arts schools, Stagecoach Uttoxeter is more than just a stage school, theatre school or drama school.

We are proud to offer a full and rounded education, teaching life skills to build confidence and stretch imaginations through singing, acting and dance classes.

Join us for a two week trial in January to see what we have to offer. The trial costs £25 for 4 - 6 year olds (90 minutes per week) and £50 for 6 - 18 year olds (3 hours per week).

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)
