The Mission

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. Despite many long-held hypotheses that theater is a dying art form, we choose to celebrate its vibrancy and longevity. 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, and bring an innovative form of theater to the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a community ready to lean forward and engage, hungry for something with a bit more bite. 


Too much drama, not enough theatre!

Passionate. Thought-provoking. Lean Ensemble Theater celebrates the vibrancy of live performance by inviting audiences to lean forward and look at the world in a different way. Lean Ensemble will leave you talking and thinking about what you've seen and heard long after you've left the theater. Talkbacks and other interactive events will offer the opportunity to exchange ideas and share comments and experiences with the Company and audience. Lean places vital importance in its core values to listen, learn, respect and play.
