Bake Off: The musical!

Guildford School of Acting performers taste continued London success with their own cake-based musical comedy.

Competitive baking is getting the musical-comedy treatment thanks to the success of a production by staff, students and alumni from the Guildford School of Acting (GSA), part of the School of Arts at the University of Surrey.

Bakewell Bake Off: A New Musical takes us to a small town in Derbyshire, where an annual competition pits neighbour against neighbour for the coveted title of Bakewell baking champion.

Originally devised and performed by students on the MA Musical Theatre programme, Bakewell Bake Off was such a hit that it transferred to London's Waterloo East Theatre for a sell-out summer run. To satisfy demand, the production is extending its run at the Landor Theatre from Tuesday 8th October to Saturday 26th October 2013, which has attracted attention from Radio Times, What's On Stage and The Stage.
