A former performing arts student has been welcomed back with open arms as she becomes the new principal.
Sasha Cairns has taken on the position at Stagecoach Performing Arts Brentwood, Oliver Road, and is hoping to inspire the next generation of budding performers.
She said: "We're buzzing with excitement at the opportunity to build a strong, creative syllabus that will challenge the talented children of Brentwood, whilst being fun, educational, stimulating and rewarding for them.
"We have been extremely busy planning the upcoming year's curriculum and activities.
"Watch this space for some of the exciting events we have in store, including an opportunity to take a performance troupe to perform at Her Majesty's Theatre next year."
As a long-standing member of the Stagecoach family, performing arts has been a major part of Sasha's life since she joined Stagecoach as a student at Stagecoach Colchester.
Following her time at the school, she went on to train at the Musical Theatre in Guildford.
Since graduating, Sasha has enjoyed a successful career on stage, including joining the UK tour of The Naked Truth, performing alongside renowned actresses Faye Tozer and Vicky Michelle.
While working as a professional performer, Sasha also taught at a number of Stagecoach schools across south east England, including Epsom and Maidenhead, where she helped students to secure West End roles in shows such as School of Rock and Matilda, as well as commercials and TV shows.
Sasha's new venture will be a family affair, as her mum Helen, who has extensive experience running a business, will support her in this new role as assistant principal.
Having successfully run a recruitment company, LSA Recruitment, for the past 15 years, the school is sure to benefit from Helen's entrepreneurial expertise.
Stagecoach Performing Arts Brentwood is part of 1,800 extra-curricular performing arts schools worldwide.
A Discovery Day will also be held in Brentwood on Saturday, August 31, where potential students can experience what Stagecoach has to offer.
