Stage2 is for anyone in Birmingham aged 7-21. We are totally open access and our number one rule is that no-one is ever left out for any reason: this includes financially – please see our Subsidy Policy for information as to how you can apply for a subsidised place.
Stage2 is a Youth Theatre that offers performance, workshop, technical theatre and work experience opportunities. Above all, we pride ourselves on being somewhere for young people to build confidence, have meaningful relationships and have the skills to achieve both in and out of Stage2.
Stage2 runs our Sunday sessions at Queensbridge School (Queensbridge Road, B13 8QB) from Summer Schools 2022 onwards. The venue has free parking and everyone will be given a code to get in.
Our shows are performed at The Crescent Theatre, Brindley Place. There is a car park next door, and you get a discount for being a part of the theatre!
Stage2 runs on Sundays during term time. We currently have two groups: one from 9.30-13.00 and one from 13.30 to 17.00. It is the same price to do one or both sessions.
Autumn 2022: 18th September – 11th December (30th October ‘off’ for Half Term)
Spring 2023: 8th January – 2nd April (19th February ‘off’ for Half Term)
Summer 2023: 23rd April – 16th July (28th May ‘off’ for Half Term)
Stage2 costs £175 per child, per term with a sibling discount available. This includes access to both the morning and afternoon group, with all of the support that comes with it. The main other ‘option’ that costs is LAMDA. Click here for more information on our LAMDA Qualifications.
We do also have a Subsidy Fund dedicated to helping members afford our fees. We believe that no one should ever be left out for any reason, and this helps us to ensure it. See our Policies Page for more info.
