What could be better than watching the bakers in the Great White Tent compete for the prize cake stand and the title of Star Baker? Hearing them burst into song (and presumably dance) while they’re at it! Well, that wish will be granted July 22 of this year, when
The Great British Bake Off – The Musical will premiere at Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
The musical comedy will follow eight amateur bakers, each with a unique story to tell, as they test their baking skills in an attempt to wow two “iconic” judges, all under the watchful eye (and most likely sharp wit) of two presenters. Sound familiar? That’s not surprising, since the show is being developed in association with Love Productions, the company that produces “The Great British Bake Off,” and Richard McKerrow, the TV show’s executive producer. The stage production will feature an original score and 18 songs written by award-winning duo Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary.
Though the cast has yet to be announced, the
theatre’s website describes the show as filled with “heart-warming characters, ounces of laughter and mouth watering music,” which, true to form, will be “suitable for the whole family.”
