Drama training at new stage school

Have your say

A RENOWNED theatre school is to take centre stage in a Sheffield suburb.

Stagecoach, Britain’s largest part-time theatre school, opens in Beighton in September.

It offers training in drama, dance and singing to young performers at weekends and is designed to build confidence through performance skills.

Principal Pat Davison said: “A good grounding in performance skills does wonders for confidence and character building.

“It gives young people the edge over competitors, whether auditioning for a part in a show or in any area of life where they’ll need to communicate, to use their voice and work as a team.”

Pat used to teach at Wales Comprehensive School before leaving to have a family. With her husband Ken, she has been running successful Stagecoach schools in Rotherham and Leeds for the last eight years.

As well as weekly classwork, Stagecoach students from across the country come together for regional and national events. An open meeting for the new school will be held at Westfield School and Sports College, Sothall.

Parents and potential students are invited to attend on Friday, June 22 at 7pm. For details, call Pat Davison on 01757 248884.
