These awards are vital to our industry for discovering and supporting our next generation of stage performers.”

Every child has potential and our ethos at Stagecoach is to recognise and celebrate young performers, by giving them the creative courage and skills to unlock that potential. We’re also hugely excited to be opening this year’s ceremony with a performance by some of our students.”
