Graduation Productions

Our full-length Graduation Productions are performed over three weeks in July in two Central London venues, with full technical support. Everyone is cast in a way which shows their talent and range. They are seen as the culmination of all the hard work the students have done. The productions have full marketing support and are the final showcase to the profession.

Our Graduation Productions are cast from graduates of both the 1 and the 2 Year Diploma in Professional Acting courses.

We open these shows up to all the industry as well as parents and friends who have stood by our students during their demanding studies. 

Friends and family of the performers should book via the student

Industry professionals can book by calling us on 020 8579 3897 or emailing 
Students should not use the box office email address.

If you are a member of the public and would like to attend please call us on the number above.

1YR Professional Acting 2015

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.
