Last Sunday, students from Stagecoach Horsham took to the stage at one of London’s most prestigious venues, Her Majesty’s Theatre, as part of an exciting programme of song, dance and musical theatre at their Spring Showcase.

Horsham’s performers, aged between 10 and 18, joined a cast of 288 Stagecoach students from across the UK in the performing arts spectacular. The Horsham team wowed the audience with their tribute to the late, great Michael Jackson, as their feet almost created sparks on the stage!

Principal of Stagecoach Horsham, Beth McLean, said, “I always feel extremely proud and privileged when I see all the hard work being transformed into a magical moment. Some of these boys and girls are going to be unforgettable names of the future. Everyone has an unforgettable time at this important event on our calendar. They meet new friends, learn a great deal from watching other performances, and even bump into the odd celebrity! (James Corden just happened to be around for quickly snatched photos!)”.

Early Stages classes are available for children aged 4 to 6 and Main School classes take place for 6 to 18 year olds and are designed to build confidence and develop communication skills through performance.
