Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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)

Meet The Team

Principal - Claire Louise Rosser BA Hons Drama & Theatre, MA Musical Theatre

Claire has been running Stagecoach Wokingham for 7 years, and in this time the school has gone from strength to strength. She has bought her experience of 15 years teaching to Berkshire, to ensure they receive the best part-time training in the performing arts.
Claire trained at Royal Holloway, University of London and graduated with a degree in Theatre Studies. She then went on to train at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and Moscow Art Theatre to study Musical Theatre and Acting, graduating with an MA. She has worked for the Stagecoach network for over 10 years, watching many children flourish into performers and even adults! She has helped secure many children roles in West End and TV shows. She also understands the use of theatre as a therapeutic tool and has worked alongside many fantastic theatre companies to bring theatre into lots of people's lives.
She has coached children into gaining roles for Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Sound Of Music (West End and national tour), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Shrek, Les Miserables, Oliver, Enron, various regional productions, full time vocational drama training and universities.
