Casting news

FURTHER casting has been announced for John Van Druten’s I Am A Camera, which runs at Southwark Playhouse from Wednesday, September 5 to Saturday, September 22, 2012.

Harry Melling – best known for playing Dudley Dursley in five of the Harry Potter films – will play Christopher Isherwood. He joins previously announced Rebecca Humphries (as Sally Bowles) and Freddie Capper (Fritz).

Based on Isherwood’s memoirs Goodbye to Berlin, and the inspiration for the musical Cabaret, I Am A Camera is part glamorous whirlwind of Berlin Bohemia, part harrowing depiction of the Nazi’s rise to power.

Harry Melling has most recently been seen on stage in When Did You Last See My Mother? (Trafalgar Studios), The School for Scandal (Barbican) and Mother Courage and Women Beware Women (National Theatre).

The rest of the cast are confirmed as Rosemary Smith (as Fraulein Schneider), Sherry Baines (Mrs Watson-Courtneidge) and Oliver Rix (Clive Mortimer).
