About Us

“A moment that changed our lives forever..."

"Part of our role as parents is to support and nurture our children; to guide and encourage; to give opportunities and offer new ventures, in the hope that they will find something they love doing and upon which they will thrive...

The creatives behind Stagebox must therefore be parents to the most children in the history of parenting.

They look after an amazing bunch of children, whom they nurture, mentor, train and care for, whilst allowing them access to opportunities we could only ever dream of. They take time to listen to us as parents and offer guidance where they can, and honesty at all times...

When our Stagebox journey began four years ago, firstly with two children being involved, quickly followed by two more, it was most definitely a moment that changed our lives forever. We have experienced events and opportunities we never dreamed would be possible, such as a film premiere, watching our children perform on stage with leading industry professionals, and having access to incredible creatives to coach and train our children in singing, acting through song, and dance.

More than this though, we have extended our family. All at Stagebox, children, parents, creatives alike, have become our friends, or rather, our family, who will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Take a leap of faith; audition as our children did; start the journey of a lifetime."
