The Bakewell Bake Off – a new comedy musical first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival – is being performed next week by Downham Amateur Dramatic Society (DADS).

They will be on stage from October 18-21 in Downham Market Town Hall, performing at 7.30pm nightly, with a matinee at 2.30pm on the Saturday.

Tickets are £8 via LEWKS in Downham Market or available on the website www.dadsdrama.org.uk

The musical centres itself around the village of Bakewell where the locals are staging the 200th anniversary of their annual baking competition.

The 11 competitors, including a nun, the village doctor and a German transvestite, battle it with their creations, aided by popular host Victoria Sponge.

Each show will see the world famous Prof Leslie Kugelhupf pick the winner – so the cast are on the edge to the very end!

If you enjoy the fast paced, innuendo filled, TV programme, The Great British Bake Off, this is for you!

Director Robert Hornett says: “The Bakewell Bake Off really is the funniest new musical around with family friendly innuendo and comedic songs.

“The show is like a really uplifting pudding; warm, hearty and will keep you feeling great all the way home!”
