Students wow the audience with Grease Junior

Students from Stagecoach Leeds Morley stepped into the spotlight last weekend when they got the chance to perform a junior version of the hit show Grease at Cockburn School in Beeston.

Stagecoach Performing Arts Leeds Morley Principal, Mark Heslop says:

“The children have been rehearsing this show weekly since September and have worked so very hard. Their performance was amazing and included pupils across a wide variety of ages who bonded so well as a team. The shows were directed by the Stagecoach Teaching Team and included many of the shows favourite hit songs and dances.”

Stagecoach Leeds Morley operates from Cockburn School on a Saturday morning and Sharp Lane Primary School on a Thursday evening. Here students work with Stagecoach teaching professionals to learn skills in musical theatre. Mark goes on the say:

“At Stagecoach we are not only teaching pupils to sing, dance and act but helping them develop their creative courage. Our programme is built around the Stagecoach Educational Framework which includes teaching valuable life skills for students to use both on and off stage”.

Stagecoach Performing Arts Leeds Morley is part of the biggest network of extra-curricular performing arts schools in the UK. The classes are divided across Early Stages (ages 4-6), Main Stages (ages 6-15) covering singing, dancing and acting.
