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.

We offer Performing Arts Exams

21st Sept - 7th Dec

Autumn Term begins on 21st September and we have a great term ahead. After fantastic shows last term, our Main Stages Students now take on new challenges in their three separate singing, dance and drama classes-ready to present three mini performances at the end of term. What a great way to discover brand new skills and talents- come, join us!

21st Sept - 7th Dec

Early Stages students will be performing a Mini Musical this term in their end of term show! Lots of giggles as they learn show songs, dances and (for those who are super-keen) lines to learn, to help tell the story. Costumes and props will bring it all together as our youngest students experience taking to the stage for the first time!

Summer Workshop Success

Congratulations to all the fantastic performers who took part in our Summer Holiday Workshops: The Litter Muncher and Annie Jr. Such a fun week and such incredible performances.

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!
