"Well done, Karen Pauley, the crew and the marvelous cast. Such energy, such joy, great song and truly fantabulous dancing... "

 — Ben Porter

I have been involved with Tokyo International Players since 2015.  As well as being a board member and an advisor, I have worked both on stage and off stage for the company.

Founded in 1896, Tokyo International Players (TIP) is a theatrical organization comprised primarily of the Tokyo foreign community, which provides quality English language entertainment for international audiences.
