Footlights: A Community Theater Podcast

Welcome to Footlights: a community theater podcast from the Quad Cities, hosted by performing arts veteran Chris Hicks, and fledgling thespian Jaren Michelle. Join us for exclusive conversations with local theater artists about why we love local theater, and the life it brings to our community.

  • Meet your hosts: Chris Hicks and Jaren Michelle. How did a seventy-two-year-old theater reviewer and a twenty-five-year-old radio producer end up hosting a podcast together? What's so special about their little Mississippi river town? Why should you care about community theater? We'll be answering these questions, having a few (okay, many) laughs, and learning a heck of a lot about Midwest theater in the process. Thanks for listening, and we hope you'll follow us on this new adventure!
