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!

No audition is required for new students - all they need is enthusiasm, commitment, and a love of Performing Arts. Two-Week trial sessions are available for all new students.

Weekly Classes

Early Stages (for ages 4-6 yrs)

Stagecoach Early Stages
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)

Stagecoach Main Stages
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!

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

Stagecoach Further Stages
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.

Principal - Anne Garrett

 Anne has spent all of her working life in the performing arts, starting out at the age of sixteen in a dancing career that spanned ten years. 

Having gained a huge amount of experience and knowledge in the theatre world, Anne returned to England and opened her own theatre school for children in the South East of England which she ran for 25 years before handing the reins to a former student. 

Sharing her love of the performing arts, inspiring and nurturing the younger generation has always been a great passion.  
Returning to her roots in the West Country Anne is now proud to be the principal of Stagecoach Taunton where her passion to inspire children with the performing arts continues…
