An adaptation by Nat Phillips of the popular pantomime story that sees two young children kidnapped by robbers and taken into a forest. As with many previous versions, much of the story is played out in Sherwood Forest, and introduces various characters from the Robin Hood legend. The production also saw Nat Phillips and Roy Rene (as Stiffy and Mo) play the thieves employed (by Horace Mann's character) to steal the babes.
One of the highlights of the pantomime was a tableau tribute to the Anzacs, titled 'The Glory of Australia'. In the march of the battalions, the various colours of troops and places the Australians fought were also depicted. A painting (by Lieutenant G. P. Hoskins) of Gallipoli under fire was also presented. Other scenic highlights were said to be Rose Petals (aka Rose Land) and Sherwood Forest.
