The idea for Clockwork Theatre presented itself in 2014 when Co-Artistic Producers, and friends, Becky MacDormand and Phil Miguel were casually grabbing a cup of coffee. In the midst of discussing all their hopes and dreams for their theatrical careers, the two discovered that they both have a strong desire to run a theatre company one day. Recognizing that they have opposite skill sets that complement one another and a similar outlook on theatre, MacDormand and Miguel decided to put their talents and determination together and uncovered what is now Clockwork Theatre. The company officially launched in early 2015.
