The Sooty Christmas Show was staged from 13 to 31 December 2011 at the Garrick Theatre in London.

The all new Sooty Christmas Show, featuring TV host Richard Cadell and the inexhaustible trio of Sooty, Sweep and Soo, comes to the Garrick Theatre in London for a special strictly limited Christmas season.

Sooty, Sweep, Soo and Richard are getting ready for their Christmas Party, but poor Sooty is having a few problems rehearsing his magic show. Sweep's Christmas cake is a recipe for disaster and little Soo just can't decide which dress to wear. Luckily Uncle Norman drops by to lend a hand assisted by his amazing troupe of performing budgies! Plus Father Christmas flies in to deliver a present for every child in the theatre to take home.

This show is Sooty's first West End show in 13 years! The original Sooty theatre show, which ran during the 1970s and 1980s, was hosted by Harry Corbett and last appeared in the West End in 1998 for a three week Christmas season at the Savoy Theatre. Sooty's current right hand man Richard Cadell says; "The Sooty theatre show was an institution during the 70s and 80s and we are hoping that the children of those eras will bring their children along to enjoy the next instalment of Sooty in the West End."

"If you haven't followed Sooty's return to television on ITV, a pre-recorded Matthew Corbett at the start of The Sooty Christmas Show introduces us to 'Sooty's new right-hand man, Richard Cadell'. Cadell does a fine job of reviving the yellow bear (first seen in 1948), using his background in magic to pepper his farcical interplay with his puppet friends with some ingenious visual gags. 'What?' he says, leaning his ear towards Sooty. 'The mums and dads seem more pleased to see you than the boys and girls?' Not in the case of my girl, who shrieked with delight when impish Sweep and sensible Soo first appeared. There are one or two wobbles, but this is a lively hour that doesn't only trade on nostalgia."
