Clay Harris Theatre
Clay Harris graduated Cum Laude from the University of Memphis with a BFA degree in Theatre Performance. As an adept director, writer, designer, visual artist, and craftsman, he has a creative force imbued with talent, skill, and energy. His work in theatre has taken him from New York’s off-Broadway to London’s West Riding, and hundreds of places in- between.
Dedicated to theatre work, he is a pioneer in his belief that the arts must be utilized in life as a tool for communication.
