About Baking Time

An international collaboration between BC's Presentation House Theatre and the UK’s Oily Cart Theatre with live music and real baking.

A fantastic feast for the senses for 3-7 year olds, and their friends and families.  Baking Time finds two playful bakers, aka Bun and Bap, sifting through magical flour storms, with mischievous doughy characters amidst shelves of baking ingredients and utensils. Bun and Bap invite all the young audience members to become bakers themselves and join in the fun. The show involves lots of stirring and opportunities for audience members, young and old to help out the bakers, as the on-stage oven fills the room with the smell of freshly baking bread.

Show quotes

 “We loved it!  What a great concept!  Invoking all the senses! Thank you for doing such a great job, and for the yummy buns!”  I. Tam

“It was an amazing show, it stimulated all of the senses!  My extremely hard to impress nearly 4 year-old was pointing, laughing and shouting.  My 7 year-old daughter also laughed the whole way through.” E. Wilson Visagie
