Talented students from Stagecoach Theatre Arts Worthing have won a national competition that saw the children choreograph and create a spooky, musical routine to the ‘We are Monster High’ anthem.


The winning routine involved all ninety students from the school and saw them record a musical video to the theme song of the popular children’s television series and toy range ‘Monster High.’


Out of over 30 schools, the Stagecoach Theatre Arts Worthing students’ video won the opportunity to be professionally recorded, and then featured on Monster High creator Mattel’s website and social media pages – giving many pupils their first taste of the world of film.


Principal Lisa Watt said: “I am so proud of our dedicated and enthusiastic students and wonderful teachers – Adam, Charlotte and Hayley – I was overwhelmed with the effort everyone put into their costumes and make-up for the filming, expressing their individuality, and then amazed by the finished video! We have a very happy school!”


All participating schools were encouraged to use their routine to show off their individuality as Monster High’s motto, ‘Be Unique. Be Yourself. Be a Monster’, encourages its students to embrace what makes them unique.


Stagecoach Schools sent their shortlisted routines to Mattel, to pick the winning performance that was aired alongside the franchise’s famous characters.


Denise Fillary, Marketing Director at Mattel, the creators of the Monster High brand, was delighted with Stagecoach School’s entry, and said: “The school truly embodied everything that Monster High stands for, and we feel that their performance was winning material.”


Monster High follows the lives of the teenage children of history’s greatest monsters, including the fierce Frankie Stein (daughter of the infamous Frankenstein’s Monster) and Deuce Gorgon, son of Medusa who, like his mother, has snakes for hair but manages to style them into his own fabulous signature snake-hawk.


Worthing’s Stagecoach School is part of a network of more than 600 part-time Theatre Arts Schools Worldwide. Early Stages classes are available for children aged 4 to 6 and Main School classes take place for 6 to 18 year olds.
