EnTrance Theatre Talk is a podcast dedicated to telling the stories about theatre that are not being told other places. Whether you are new to theatre, are a veteran theatre goer, or are somewhere in between, we invite you to join us as we go behind the scenes and shine a spotlight on the work, the craft, and the transformative nature of theatre in our podcast. Through interviews with the people on the stage, the many more behind the stage, and even those in front of the stage (the audience), we aim to explore and celebrate the power of theatre as a vehicle for connection, joy, magic, and opening the door to what’s possible.
