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.
