A synopsis of the musical bills the show as “a great big slice of musical heaven.”
“Follow the trials and tribulations of our bakers, all with their own stories to tell and as unique from one another as their marvellous baked creations,” the synopsis continues. “Find out who will triumph as Star Baker, and who will fall foul of a soggy bottom. Expect heartwarming characters, ounces of laughter and mouth watering music in this brand-new and original British musical, suitable for the whole family.”
Whether or not any of the real bakers or judges from the show will make an appearance is yet to be determined.
Great British Bake Off:The Musical opens at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham on July 22 and runs until Aug. 6. Tickets are available on the theatre website.
