Jamie Grant will step into the role of Isla in the theatrical adaptation of Casablanca
Stefan Rokebrand (Chez Bread, cell block H) and Jamie Grant (Clamp) play the doomed lovers Rick and Isla, where passion strikes when they come together during the Second world War encounter in the Moroccan city.
The film Casablanca was nominated for eight Oscars and won three, including the prestigious prize for best film. The lead roles in the film version were played by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
“What does this say strong love story against a backdrop of war and turmoil about us, and about the now in which we live?”, asked director Madeleine Matzer. “I look forward to this together with the fine team and cast on the stage to go find out.”
The performance is on Saturday 16 march in première in Den Bosch and touring after that until the end of June along several theatres in the Netherlands.
