How it works

Samantha has loved performing since being a child. Samantha studied on the three-year actor’s course at The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (A.L.R.A) and went on to gain a degree in English with Drama and Theatre Studies at Roehampton Institute and later achieved her P.G.C.E. from Greenwich University.

 

Samantha worked for Stagecoach Theatre Arts for 17 years and owned her own franchise for 10 years. Highlights of this time were providing opportunities for students to appear in joint events with other Stagecoach schools at Her Majesty’s Theatre and The Harlequin Theatre, Redhill, as well as opportunities at local festivals and competitions and annual shows and pantomimes, annual LAMDA drama examinations, developing students to progress to the highest levels with some auditioning and performing in West End shows.

 

Samantha has taught at state primary and secondary schools, and at Merton Sixth Form College and Brooklands College on the G.N.V.Q, A.S and B.Tech courses. Samantha also provided after school drama clubs in Merton for 4 years with her own company ‘Daisy Chain Drama’ before becoming a mother 12 years ago.

 

Samantha ran a music and singing department in South London for the Al Rasilah Trust, devoted to bringing skills to local Islamic children. Samantha has also steadily run for 19 years 'Bacchae Theatre Company’, a fringe theatre company dedicated to providing local fringe theatre in South London and rural Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, last seen touring ‘Canterbury Tales Made Modern’ in a red campervan names ‘Priscilla’! 

Bacchae Theatre

Samantha is involved in her own Theatre Company founded in 1999 and set up with classical plays in mind.  The idea was bourne out of both the difficulty and frustration of achieving suitable parts as a performer, the enjoyment of studying and performing classic text as well at the creative freedom that comes with running your own production

What Happy

Students &

Parents Say

My son LOVES his Drama lessons.  Sammy has a great way of getting the kids warmed up and then manages to get them to produce amazing sketches and pieces of work.  The extra opportunities to perform at locations such at Secretts are just fab for the kids to experience. Great LAMDA results too!
