The Bakewell Bake Off CD

THE BAKEWELL BAKE OFF Original Cast Recording

The Bakewell Bake Off

is a new British musical written and starring The Baking Committee (a collection of students from the Guildford School of Acting) that premiered at the Landor Theatre in 2013, with Kevin Michael Cripps as musical director, and directed by the course leader Julian Woolford.

Take seven eager contestants, three feuding judges and one bewildered hostess, add flour eggs and sugar and mix together in a small village. Add the pressure of a baking competition and you’ve got a recipe for a hilarious musical comedy!

This wonderfully original ‘heartwarming’ show was initial intended as a in-house college writing project, that led to a try-out run at the Waterloo East Theatre, and finally a full production at the acclaimed Landor Theatre.

"witty, tuneful and great fun … as light and fluffy as the most succulent lemon soufflé. I loved it. ‘Quick – get this show into the West End!"

Musical Theatre Review

9/10 "I quite simply loved this recording … It's funny, heartwarming, and extremely British, but shows that we in the UK can write musicals as strong as anything that comes from over the pond … such a joy to listen to … this is what good, new, fresh theatre writing sounds like … In SimG Records we have a unique label that actively supports this new writing, and is something we all, if we really want a future for new, British musicals, should support"

Review Graveyard

"A fun night, good songs, fine team-playing by stars of the future… what’s not to like in a frothy musical about cake … a heartwarming show"

Musical Theatre Review

"with characters as kitsch as fondant fancies and a plot as light and fluffy as an angel cake, it still makes for an entertaining evening"

"relentless fun, leaving no pun unturned … with some sparkling rhymes"

The Public Reviews
