First Stages

Devizes Wiltshire UK

'bringing out the best'


Encouraging and promoting local young talent

in music, dance and drama

by professional workshops and shows


Often imitated, never bettered!

"As has been the pattern for the last 10 years - First Stages leads the way in professional direction and stage production not only in Devizes but throughout the amateur stage"





After the huge success of the past two annual events, a THIRD show organised by Devizes Rotary Club is booked for 12 July 2017 at Dauntsey's School, Market Lavington. Carole is delighted to be working with Simon May again as Artistic Director for SUPERCHOIR! 2017.


Some of our members acted as models for the publicity for the website: Many more First Stages members were also involved with their school choirs in this huge concert of nearly 300 young voices.


It’s all about the joy of performing in something bigger than yourself, meeting and singing fantastic music with other young people from many different schools. We are very proud that the Duchess of Kent, herself a school choir director, wrote a wonderful letter of support for First Stages and this project.

A Charity Benefit in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Trust UK


An evening of young bands, singing groups and soloists

at Bromham Social Centre, SN15 2JB



First Stages of Devizes was formed in January 2008 to train and offer experience to young people aged from 8 years onwards. Over time it has evolved into a more complex organisation, a registered charity which actively encourages and promotes talented young people - solo performers, singers, dancers, bands and actors, appealing universally to audiences of all ages.


We are delighted and encouraged that so many friends from the world of professional musical theatre continue to support us, making it possible for us to provide a fitting showcase for local talent.


But apart from staging our own concerts and shows we support other local community events and charities throughout the year. Our next major event is a charity show STARS 2017 on 25 November 2017 at Bromham Social Centre to benefit Cystic Fibrosis, a cause very dear to our hearts - more details will follow.
