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

December 19th

It's our last day of term on Saturday 19th December. Students can wear something Christmassy to finish off the term. See you at normal class times!

Online Learning Studio

During Covid lockdown restrictions our students needn't miss out on their Stagecoach classes. Stagecoachathome is our Online Learning Studio full of engaging pre-recorded lessons and videos from teachers and performing arts industry professionals. The fun and the learning continues at home!

West End - Nov 2019

Last year, some of our students 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. Such confidence- an audience filled with proud families and teachers.

Childcare Vouchers

Stagecoach Totton is now registered with Ofsted, meaning we adhere to the highest standards of safety and quality teaching for our students. Parents can now use Childcare Vouchers to pay for all our term time classes and holiday workshops. Please contact Principal Alison Chant for more for more information.

Summer Workshops

Covid restrictions meant we could not run our workshop week this Summer, so here is a flashback to 2019. Such a fun week with incredible performances of The Litter Muncher and Annie Jr. Check out our Facebook Page @StagecoachTotton for more pictures of the week. Watch this space as dates will be released for our Summer 2021 Workshop soon.

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!

(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!
