Stagecoach Taunton

Welcome to Stagecoach Taunton where we provide an exciting platform for students from 4-18 years to explore the performing arts.

All three disciplines are taught at Stagecoach, singing, dance and drama in a safe, caring and inspiring environment, all under one roof. We are here to encourage and develop each child individually whether as a fantastic hobby or a stepping stone to a career within the performing arts; we are here to provide a ‘Creative Courage for Life’. No previous experience is necessary, just a bundle of enthusiasm!

We are open Saturday mornings through term time and are now enrolling for the Spring Term. Two-Week trial sessions are available for all new students.

Early Stages

It was amazing to meet all of the Early Stages over the past few weeks and I am looking forward to getting to know everyone even more when we return after Christmas. What an exciting new term it will be as we start rehearsing for Beauty and the Beast along with the rest of the school. Have a fabulous Christmas everyone!

Main and Further Stages

What a great group of students at Taunton Stagecoach! Looking forward to working with you all next term as we start rehearsals together for Beauty and the Beast. We are celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of Stagecoach in 2018! Simultaneously with hundreds of Stagecoach schools to ultimately be entered into the Guinness Book of Records!

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Early Stages classes run alongside the main Stagecoach schools, where young people learn skills in each of the three Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama, so it is an easy step when it is time to transfer to the next stage.

(90 minutes each week)

Main Stages (for ages 6-18 yrs)

Main Stages classes are split in three age appropriate groups, where young people learn new skills in each of the complementary Musical Theatre disciplines of singing, dancing & drama. We nurture the shy and apprehensive, until they find their feet and voice, whilst at the same time developing and channelling those with bundles of talent, confidence and energy. We believe in the potential of every child!

(3 hrs each week)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Our advanced musical theatre sessions give talented students the chance to extend their performance skills.  Through in-depth training and master classes, we help students to hone their skills in singing, dancing and acting.  We also give students the confidence to audition for theatre and vocational drama schools (if that is their goal) and make sure they are well prepared for interviews and auditions. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

Holiday Workshops

Themed Children's Parties

Birthdays & Celebrations

We understand that with the increasing demands on parents, juggling the pressures of work and family life, time is at an essence. Therefore Stagecoach Parties provide a way to remove the stress from what should be a day of celebration for everyone and allow you to sit back, relax and let us do all the work! Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!
