The Committee

It takes an entire village to put a production together. We have numerous actors who return to TIP again and again. We are also very lucky to have a dedicated and passionate group of people who can be called upon when the sound won’t work, the lights won’t turn on and we have run out of Guinness in the theatre bar ! Below is the list of this year’s committee who look after the entire season and keep us all moving.

Our President : Geraldine Browne


Ger loves her tea and has been known to serve a good one now and again during a run. Ger is from Tipperary but has called Toronto home for the last 25 years. She has been with TIP for 22 of the 25 years.

Our Treasurer: Jean Ireton


This is Jean’s third year in the role of Treasurer.  Jean has previously tread the boards with TIP in Elvis’s Toenail and Bookworms.  Jean grew up in Limerick but has lived in Italy and India before returning to Canada in 2010.

Our Secretary : Brian Cain

Brian is ‘Happy as a Clam’ to have accepted the position of secretary of the Toronto Irish Players ! This is Brian’s first ever board position as his previous experiences have included being back and on stage for various theatre companies.

Our Season Development Officer: Maureen Lukie

Maureen has been a TIP member since 1995, and she has many ‘favourite’ productions, including James Joyce’s ‘The Dead’, ‘Elvis’s Toenail’ and ‘An Ideal Husband’.


Our P.R. & Media Officer : Diane Flanagan

Diane has been in Toronto for almost 3 years. Her first play with TIP was Shadow of a Gunman where she learned what happens when the sound refuses to work !


Members at Large : Terry O’Brien

Can you guess which one is Terry? Terry hails from the beautiful village of Blarney and has called Toronto home for 28 years.


& Jackie Coleman

Jackie hails from Offaly and has lived in Toronto for the past five years. The Night Joe Dolan’s Car Broke Down was her first introduction to TIP as part of the crew and she hopes to be involved in many more in the future.
