Alf has an eye for other people's possessions. Especially belongings with sentimental value. He snatches and grabs without a thought for other people's feelings. Will he change tack and learn there are better ways to play? Roll up, set a sail and join Alf as he gallops through the blustery wood, along the seashore and revels in wonder as the circus comes to town. Full of imaginative play, original songs and vibrant characters, Alf the Highwayman is a show for all the family with plenty of chances to join in and no frights!
