The Downlands Musical is held every two years and students participate in all facets of the production to stage this major event.

On and off-stage talent is entirely sourced from the Downlands student body - the actors, dancers, band, stage crew and technical crew.

In 2016, Downlands College proudly presented Les Misérables as their biennial musical production.

Les Misérables featured in excess of 120 Downlands students performing Boublil & Schonberg's seminal masterpiece, widely regarded as one of the best musicals of the 20th century.

The Graham Centre was transformed into 19th century France for four performances from 28 April 2016. With a 27 piece orchestra, full theatrical lighting and sound, this production was an amazing performance that audiences are still talking about.

The level of professionalism achieved with every school musical is a great source of pride and joy for the whole College community.
