Clinton is beside himself to be working on this project with Human Loser Theatre and Morgan Smith. Previously, he directed Morgan’s play Electra at the Edmonton Fringe. In 2013, he directed and translated Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters for Broken Toys Theatre. This is his first time directing for the Roxy stage, but not his first time integrating cheer routines into a theatre show.
