Autumn Angelettie

Artistic Director, she/her

Autumn Angelettie is a theatrical director, producer, playwright, and performer from Greater Philadelphia, based in New York City. As an abolitionist, feminist theatre maker and organizer, Autumn seeks to create and produce radically transformative art in an evolving industry. Her experience and expertise lie in curating and leading creative teams composed of members of the global majority, and developing new, social justice oriented works. Autumn has been involved in the development of world premieres by NSangou Njikam (21 Strings: A Rhyme), Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi (Klytmnestra: An Epic Slam Poem, Helen Hayes Best Outstanding Original Play 2020), T.J. Lewis (blk thoughts (:you can redo?:)) and nearly a dozen other new Black theatrical productions, including her own, in the varied capacities of director, producer, playwright, and actor.

 

She has been honored with experiences on and offstage at the Apollo Theater, Signature Theatre NYC, Mabou Mines, Joe’s Pub, Theater Alliance, Young Playwrights’ Theater, Broadway Green Alliance, The Howard Players’ 8x10 Play Festival, Philly Young Playwrights’ Monologue Festival, Howard University, with the Broadway Advocacy Coalition, and of course, with Lime Arts Productions’ Twenty by Twenty Fringe. Autumn earned her BFA in Theatre Arts in the inaugural class of the illustrious Howard University Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts. At Howard, she served as President of the historic Howard Players, acting as Producing Artistic Director of the oldest Black student nonprofit theatre company in the US. She is honored to serve as the Artistic Director of Lime Arts Productions.

Lo Williams

Executive Artistic Producer, she/her

Adaptable, creative, and reliable, Lo Williams is a young actor, director, producer, and playwright from Los Angeles, CA who thrives in collaborative environments and in pressurized situations. She will be based in the Chicago area beginning in the Fall of 2022.

 

Lo recently finished acquiring her undergraduate degree from Howard University with a B.F.A. in Theatre Arts and a concentration in Acting. She has had the opportunity to perform in The Cakewalk Series in partnership with the Lucille Lortel Theatre, as well as a featured role with the PostClassical Ensemble for their production Rediscovering Black Classical Music. She also has been involved in the world premiere of Nsangou Njikam’s 21 Strings (Howard University) and Rep Us All (Rorschach Theatre). She has most recently played in the role of Lady Macbeth for the production of Macbeth with PG County Shakespeare in the Parks in the summer of 2022. 

 

Lo takes pride in being an alumna of the National Theatre Institute and a Lin Manuel Miranda Family Fellow, as well as having served as a Board Member of the August Wilson Society for 2 years. Beyond work on and off the stage she is a published poet of the collection Et Cetera, works in film, is studying a variety of different languages, and is an avid reader. 

 

Lo seeks to make commentary and shape opinions with each piece she chooses to do. In a world of tumultuous political, religious, and social climates it is easy to forget how to feel safe. She intends to create theatre that helps us remember.  

 

Above all, she desires to make art that is accessible, and theatre that is true.
