"Running Stagecoach MK East is a joy; I get to work with dedicated teachers, who create a buzzing atmosphere where students continue to thrive".
Sue taught singing at some of the very first Stagecoach Schools in the late 80's and is still Singing Coach at Stagecoach in Stony Stratford when she is not running Woburn Sands. An accomplished singer and pianist, Sue gained a music degree from York University before taking a postgraduate media course at Bristol University. She toured much of the world as an actress/musician before taking a 'proper job' at the BBC. Initially employed behind the cameras, Sue soon started appearing on-screen as a singer/songwriter and comedy actress in TV programmes throughout the 80's & 90's and carved out a niche for herself on the Live Alternative Comedy Circuit.
" It was through my comedy career that I met my husband, Bob, at The Edinburgh Festival. We later set up Stagecoach in Milton Keynes and have had the pleasure of seeing it continue to grow both in reputation and in student numbers".
Under Sue's vocal direction, hundreds of Stagecoach students have sung in professional roles at Milton Keynes Theatre, notably in SOUTH PACIFIC, CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG and JOSEPH and others have enjoyed West End roles, recently in THE LION KING and OLIVER!
"Of course, as well as building confidence, people can still find their way into the profession; what we give is the chance for our students to perform to the best of their ability and go on to fulfil their potential in all walks of life, not just on the stage."
