A whole host of gifted students from Stagecoach Performing Arts in Caversham graced the stage of His Majesty's Theatre in London’s West End showcasing their singing and dancing talents. 

The event marked their third consecutive year performing in the West End, and this time the show was entirely composed by the students about a world where the lines between heroes and villains blurred, challenging the notions of right and wrong. 

The students weaved in a range of songs, including Miley Cyrus's 'Prisoner’, Billie Eilish's 'Bad Guy,' and Olivia Rodrigo's 'Vampire,' along with 'Disconnect' by Becky Hill, 'Superheroes' by The Script, and 'House of Memories' by Panic! At The Disco.

The evening performance was not only a celebration of the students from Stagecoach in Caversham but also students hailing from schools across the UK, including Camberley, Sidcup, Chigwell, Watford, Maidstone West, Totton, Potters Bar and Weston-super-Mare. 

Principal of Stagecoach Performing Arts in Caversham Yasmin Yazdi said: “It was such a highlight for our eldest students and something they look forward to each year.

"They have pushed themselves out of their comfort zone, and to witness our students unite and showcase their talents, I’m incredibly proud of them.”

Jacqueline Anderson, who played an instrumental role in preparing the troupe, said: “It’s such a privilege to be able to help prepare the children for such a special day alongside our fantastic team.

"Every one of the students brings something different to the table and to witness them take on the challenge and see the joy in their faces once all the hard work has paid off is magic.” 

In the 36 years since launching, Stagecoach Performing Arts has seen more than one million students unlock their creative potential.

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.
