A local drama group is bringing its 2020 pantomime to peoples' homes for free.

Tomorrow (Saturday) Iver Heath Drama Club will broadcast the show - which they performed in January - via YouTube

The club's chairman and dame Matt Streuli works for the NHS. He was inspired by the National Theatre which shows its own productions via YouTube.

Matt said: "Having spent 14 days in isolation, it can be really hard on your mental health. We thought sharing our pantomime for free would be a great way to engage with people throughout the area, inspire youngsters who may be finding homeschooling tough, and give us all some escapism from the doom and gloom of Covid19."

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, written by club member Lee Hall, was originally performed six times and seen by almost 700 people.

The club is 71 years old, non-profit making and surviving on ticket sales, membership fees and grants from the Ivers Parish Council, Pinewood Studios and Buckinghamshire County Council. The club has members of all ages and abilities and offers support for members with learning, mental health and physical disabilities.

Martin Tett, leader of Bucks County Council, saw the pantomime in January. On Twitter he wrote: "Many many thanks to Iver Heath Drama Club for an absolutely fabulous and very funny evening. You were all stars!"

IHDC's treasurer Carol Campling won the Volunteer of the Year award from Ivers Parish Council earlier this year. She is keen for people to 'try out' the club's popular style of show, especially if they have not seen a pantomime before.

She said: "We've had people come to our panto from across the South East and we've been told that we're better value and more fun than any professional pantomime. I'd love everyone to watch-a-long on Saturday afternoon and try our community comedy."

The show will stream live at 3pm and then be available to watch 'on demand' for seven days via YouTube -
