The story of a tailor who discovers that the adventure
he longs for lies at his feet – in his pile of laundry.
Play Number three in our '18-19 Season for SCAMPS.
The new production from renowned physical theatre performer Wolfe Bowart, Cloud Soup tells the story of a tailor who discovers that the adventure he longs for lies at his feet – in his pile of laundry. The tailor’s humble shop becomes an undiscovered world as fabrics magically morph, found objects transform into curious beings and puffs of steam remind us of a time when we saw faces in the clouds.
Wear mismatched socks, put your shoes on the wrong feet, turn your shirt inside out and you’ll be perfectly dressed for Cloud Soup.

Support Physical Theater in Tucson
Send a family to see Cloud Soup!
At the S&S we are dedicated to engaging audiences that may lack opportunity to experience the impact of theater on our lives. We carefully select our content while fostering a community of artists who can create high-quality theater that immerses and connects with new audiences.
To that end, we can use your help, as we can’t do it through ticket sales alone. Our intimate space isn’t large enough to support our quality of production while keeping ticket prices accessible. We rely on supporters like you to make our outreach to new audiences possible.
Wolfe Bowart has crafted a work of phenomenal physical theater - a work that is both significant, profound AND for audiences of all ages. We believe there should be more work like this done in Tucson regularly.
Please take this opportunity to support the production of Cloud Soup and gift a ticket to a family who otherwise may not be able to attend the production!

Christopher “Tiffer” Hill (Resident Stage Manager) is excited to be entering his second season with Scoundrel & Scamp. After a brief stint as a vocal performance major at the University of Arizona, he began working as a stagehand at the Gaslight Theatre starting in 2012. He continued working there full-time for the next five and a half years at the pace of at least eight shows a week, eventually stage managing 21 productions including favorites such as Arizona Smith and the Relic of Doom, Spider-Guy, and Ghostblasters! Favorites from S&S’s first season include An Unproduced Screenplay About The Death Of Walt Disney, Mr Burns: a post-electric play, and Oaf. Tiffer also served as lighting designer for the 2018 Tucson Fringe Festival and the 2018 Bennett TheatreLab Festival of Plays.
Leigh (Resident House Manager) began her foray into house management in 2009 with The Rogue Theatre and has, at one point or another, filled every front of house roles from baking cookies before the show to sweeping up the crumbs after a performance. She joined The Scoundrel & Scamp team in their 2017 inaugural season and is excited to be a part of the Theatre’s growth. She is an artist for fun, a writer professionally, and a helper compulsively.Â Leigh is a passionate activist and Tucson enthusiast and enjoys doing the work that make Tucson and the world a better place for everyone. She is a proud pet parent, a planner, and possibly the worst vegan ever. Leigh got a BA in History, with a minor in Linguistics, from the University of Arizona. So far that has mostly garnered her friends and colleagues stories about the War of 1812 they never wanted to hear.
