The Little Theatre has a quarterly podcast, launched in June 2020, available on the theatre’s YouTube channel, iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and many other podcast platforms.

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. Email us if you would like to get involved in any way.
