We’re taking you behind the curtain with CIVIC STORIES, a new podcast with Alex Peek.
Meet Your Host: Alex Peek
Alex Peek has been a long time guitar player for the South Bend Civic for over 20 years; playing in shows that include The Sound of Music, Grease, RENT and Jesus Christ Superstar. In those 20 years, he went from starting his college career wanting to be a Band Teacher to then changing things up by studying Electronics at Ivy Tech. Currently, Alex is an Applications Engineer at ASA Electronics.
CIVIC STORIES is a podcast that takes a deeper look into the lives of those who make up the South Bend Civic Theatre family. Join us as Alex interviews actors, staff, musicians and volunteers, new and old, and discover the heart of the South Bend Civic Theatre.
Alex Peek launched the podcast during the COVID-19 pandemic as a reminder to the community: The CIVIC’s stage may be dark, but the CIVIC still plays an important role in many lives.
Join us every other Monday for South Bend Civic Theater’s podcast, CIVIC STORIES.
Civic Stories Episode 27 Celebrates our 1-Year Anniversary!
In today’s episode, I celebrate the One-Year Anniversary of Civic Stories!
To celebrate I’m doing a “behind the scenes” episode. I have a special guest and it’s someone who I interviewed as an “audition” for Aaron to prove that I could actually do this thing! I interviewed my friend Karleen who has a very interesting history and felt that her story should be heard. And as you listen, remember, this is from last year!”
