The Little’s Quarterly Podcast

The Little Theatre launched a new quarterly podcast in June 2020, available on the theatre’s YouTube channel, Apple Podcast, Spotify, Deezer and many other podcast platforms. Episodes are available on the theatre’s YouTube channel.

The podcast is aimed at both the active members of Leicester Drama Society, and those who watch productions at the theatre… along with a wider theatre audience. Released approximately every three months, the programme will include features on all aspects of theatre life both on and backstage. The podcast will also look at the wider world of theatre, including interviews with actors, directors and playwrights.

Contributions to the podcast from theatre members are welcome.
