Spring Term at Epsom

An exciting Spring term for our students. All 7 main schools will be working on a fully produced '' Wild Western'' show. Furthers will be putting on ''I Get a Kick'' based on the songs of Cole Porter, all at the Adrian Mann Theatre. Early stages will be working on their theme ''Jungle Fever'' for a skills term.

Inspection 2019

Our recent inspection gave us a brilliant “Exceeds expections in all areas!' Comments such as "superbly lead school by the principal outstanding teaching in all disciplines, one of the best show rehearsals I’ve seen all year”. Epsom is also in the top 5% of all UK Stagecoach Schools. We exceeded in all areas including our support for SEN children

Auditions and Successes

Many of our students work professionally in stage and screen through top agencies. Our students can be seen in films such as ‘The Kingsman’,‘ Alice Through the Looking Glass’ ‘The Limehouse Golem’ ‘Heidi’ and in West End shows such as Matilda, Bugsy Malone and Kinky Boots and The Ferryman and in christmas adverts for McDonalds and Shell!

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)

Further Stages (for ages 15+ yrs)

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. 

Fees in accordance with Main Stages.

Whether they want to be fairies, pirates or detectives, there is a Stagecoach Party for everyone!

Meet The Team

Principal - Rachel Crouch

Rachel trained at Laine Theatre Arts where she qualified as a member of the ISTD Teaching Board. Rachel worked as a professional performer in musical such as West Side Story (UK Tour and West End) and Anything Goes (where she was cover of lead role "Hope"). During her years as a performer Rachel worked with names such as Bonnie Langford and Wayne Sleep. Rachel then went on to run Stagecoach Sutton, where she grew the schools from 110 students to over 425 with many performing in the West End. During her time at Stagecoach Sutton Rachel co-opened Performance Preparation Academy (PPA). As this became a full time job Rachel sold Stagecoach to her sister and focused solely on PPA. Due to Rachel's hard work and connections in the industry PPA grew rapidly to became a market leader. However Rachel always missed working with younger children and having 3 young children herself wanted to move back to Stagecoach.

Rachel is thrilled to be running Stagecoach Epsom and will bring her experience and enthusiasm to the schools and continue the good work already achieved.
