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.
