Those eagerly looking for ways to keep the kids busy during the summer holidays will be delighted to hear that Stagecoach Performing Arts is running workshops in drama, dance and singing across its schools in Gloucestershire.
With sessions running in Cheltenham, Cirencester and Gloucester, youngsters will get to take to the stage, practicing their lines and finessing their moves, as they learn to put on a fully-staged show in a week!
Welcoming budding stars aged four to 18, Stagecoach’s summer workshops are suitable for all children – whether they currently attend the stage school, or want to dip their toe into the world of musical theatre for the very first time.
It’s a wonderful way for young people to learn new skills, build their confidence and, of course, have fun making new friends. Both childcare vouchers and tax-free childcare payments are accepted to help parents with the fees.
