Lean Ensemble

Lean Ensemble Theater is a professional, performing arts based company founded in the spirit that theater is a living entity which is bigger than any individual or group lucky enough to work in the field. Founded in 2015 by Artistic Director, Blake White and a core team of Ensemble Members, it is our belief that a band of artists can come together in the truest sense of the word ensemble, each part in relation to the whole. LET works to bring an innovative form of theater to the Lowcountry of South Carolina through its mainstage programming, LEAN LAB new work development program, and our education programming produced in partnership with Beaufort County schools, the Boys and Girls Club of HHI, and Island Rec. We are here to serve a community ready to lean forward and engage, hungry for something with a bit more bite.

MITCHELVILLE (Development Reading)

Written by Aurin Squire. Directed by Christopher Windom.

In October, with great excitement, we will have an online reading of the new play Mitchelville by Aurin Squire. When a young man tries to save his Gullah family home, he dives into the history of his family lineage, the Civil War, and the first town of Black freedmen in America. Mitchelville is a story about learning from the past, saving for the future, and keeping a tradition going.

Originally scheduled for this past May, this reading was postponed due to COVID and now will happen online featuring artists from across the country in preparation for a full production during the 2021/22 season.
