Each year we hire a major London venue to showcase the talent within each graduating year group. By this stage in the programmes casting is aimed to show each student's ability and talent in the best light. Short scenes are rehearsed especially for this event. 

We invite industry professionals and encourage them to follow any students they might be interested in when they perform in the Ensemble and final Graduation Productions. After the performance the cast get the opportunity to meet the professional audience.

Details of the Showcases and Graduation Performances are posted to industry professionals on the school mailing list, and are also published on the Spotlight performance calendar.

My time at DSL has been one of the best years of my life, I have so many fond memories and friends for life. I've been very lucky to have met some very wise people who have passed on their great knowledge. DSL has helped me break out of my box and be bold with my acting. Thank you so much.
