Meet Your Host: Alex Peek

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.

Civic Stories Season 2 Episode 4 | Meet Playwright Aaron Mays

In today’s episode, I have Aaron Mays. Aaron is the Playwright of SBCT’s new adaption of ‘A Christmas Carol.’ Today’s episode goes deep into what everyone coming to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ can expect. We get into how Aaron was brought on to adapt the Novella into something new for all to see at SBCT. We also get into what inspired his adaptation and what we hope people will get out of the show! I say we because I’m actually involved in this show! And you’ll get to hear about my involvement with ‘A Christmas Carol’!
