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.

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!
