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.

Main Stages 2018

2018 is a BIG year for Stagecoach... it's our 30th Birthday! Why not come along to our free taster session on Jan 6th to try our classes... we will be singing, dancing and acting the best bits of musicals from the last 30 years!

Visiting Professionals!

Main School students had a Stunt Workshop on 18th November- It was fantastic! Kieran from TK Stunts revealed industry secrets; walked students through a normal day on a film set and then let them loose on an action sequence of their own! Students learnt exactly what it takes to be a Hollywood Stuntman... (or woman!) Such a great day!

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 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!
