Leigh Moyer

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. 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.
