Everyone's favourite puppet Sooty is heading to a Weston-super-Mare theatre for more magic and mayhem.
Sooty, and, of course, long-time companions Sweep and Soo, are heading to town accompanied by TV’s Richard Cadell for the new show direct from CITV.
In this new production, Cadell has just been put in charge of the show by Mr Slater, but nothing is going to plan.
Unfortunately Sooty’s magic tricks turn out to be rather messy, and Sweep’s escapology act has him all tied up.
The hope is that Soo can save the day with her tap dancing.
The Sooty Show features guest stars Butch and Ramsbottom, and spectators can expect magic, music, mayhem and plenty of audience participation too.
It will be a spectacular treat for Sooty fans old and new – and there is even a chance for theatre-goers to meet him and Cadell after the show.
Cadell became the hand of Sooty in 1999 and earned rave reviews.
Matthew Corbett, the son of Sooty’s creator Harry, said: “Richard Cadell is as close to a Corbett as you will ever get – Sooty is on the right hands.”
Though it may be hard to believe, The Sooty Show launched on the BBC in 1955 and moved to ITV in 1968.
It is now produced at Brean Leisure Park, and is set in a British coastal resort.
The park holds Sooty memorabilia from the past 65 years which visitors can go to see.
The Sooty Show will arrive at The Playhouse, in High Street, on October 1 at 11am and 2.30pm.
Tickets, priced £12-14, are available on 01934 645544 or www.theplayhouse.co.uk
