Students from the local Stagecoach Performing Arts Shrewsbury graced the Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury in late October 2023.
The budding young actors worked tremendously hard during rehearsals in what made for a spectacular event. As part of the show, the performing arts students performed a variety of medleys and renditions of world-famous songs from musicals, films and artists, from the likes of Cats, Wicked, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Tina Turner The Musical, and Elton John, among many others.
On the night, guests of families and friends alike were also able to enjoy a plethora of performances by students from other schools, including Chester, Wilmslow, Stafford and Stone, and Oswestry. The showcases help build upon the students’ creativity, courage and skills that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
It was a wonderful experience for the children. They all got a free t-shirt and sang Three Little Birds and Sing by Gary Barlow. I am hugely proud of all my teachers involved!
In the 35 years since launching, Stagecoach Performing Arts has seen more than one million students unlock their creative potential, which they will value for their whole lives. Provided with the support and dedication of such an outstanding Principal network, the students learn so much more than how to sing, dance and act. Stagecoach helps them blossom into well-rounded individuals, ready to embrace life and all of its exciting opportunities. Stagecoach Performing Arts is also thrilled to have celebrated its 35-year anniversary this year.
The value of performing arts training extends far beyond the opportunities for professional performance features. Recent Stagecoach survey research highlighted the incredible positive impacts the arts have on children’s happiness and creativity, with 85% of children citing singing and dancing with their peers as a major contributing factor to their happiness. Almost half (41%) of the nation’s parents are concerned that their children are less happy growing up than their generation had been. Encouraging participation in the arts will have undeniable benefits for the wellbeing of both children and parents.
With a network of over 55,000 students and more than 3000 extra-curricular Performing Arts Schools worldwide, Stagecoach aims to make a difference in its students’ lives by teaching Creative Courage for Life and many children have gone on to study and work in Performing Arts from blockbuster films to countless roles in local theatre productions. Early Stages classes are available for children aged four to six and Main Stages classes take place for six to 18-year-olds every weekend during term time.
