Stagecoach Totton

I am thrilled to be Principal of Stagecoach Totton after working as a Drama and Singing teacher for 10 years. After graduating with a Performing Arts degree in 2005, I worked as a performer and stage manager before joining Stagecoach.  Stagecoach Totton has featured in Cats at the NIA, Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End, The Royal Albert Hall and several charity shows at The Hub theatre, Southampton. They have appeared in numerous shows at The Mayflower Theatre, Southampton.

11th January - 28th March

Spring Term begins on 11th January 2020. This "Skills Term" allows students to explore a range of genres within each discipline of singing, dance and drama. From physical theatre, hip-hop and contemporary; modern musicals to the classics... What a great way to discover brand new skills and talents- come, join us! 2 week trials are booking now.

11th January - 28th March

Early Stages students will be exploring a range of material based on their favourite Disney films. Students act out fairytales such as Cinderella and stories with more recent princes and princesses. Balance, co-ordination, vocal projection and pitch control are all developed alongside turn-taking and friendship-making skills. Come & join the fun!

West End! - Nov 2019

Some of our students recently took to the stage at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End. Weeks of dedicated rehearsals all culminated in a fantastic showcase and an incredible experience for our students. We aim to offer performance opportunities in professional venues often; our next "big gig" will be at Bournemouth Pavilion theatre in 2020!

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)

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 of the 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!
