I am so excited about the launch of Northern Prep Squad. It’s the training I wish I’d had as a child as it allows trainee performers to get a true insight into what it takes to make it in the industry. The ethos of the company is to really hone the talent and craft of its students. So many training academies are more like youth clubs, entertaining children for a few hours at the weekend. Northern Prep Squad is so much more than that. It’s for Children with real talent and real passion who want to put in the hard work to get to the next level. Training like this is so sparse in the north and I’d sign up myself if I could.

Northern Prep Squad is a great idea for those students at Stagecoach who want to take their training to the next level. It allows them the opportunity to continue with their training with us but then hones in on those skills needed for auditions for work and/or drama school entry. It's great that Northern Prep Squad are working alongside schools like Stagecoach in order to help train young children and adults in getting where they want to get in the competitive world of performing arts. It’s a great idea run by a very talented and dedicated team.
