TIP Needs You!

Tokyo International Players continues to deliver exciting English language theatre to our audiences through the dedication of our volunteer staff, and we’re always looking for new members to bolster our numbers. We’re looking for people with all levels of experience - current members include seasoned and trained professionals and total theatre newbies. Working with TIP is a great way to discover theatre or to continue developing your professional portfolio.

If you think you’d be interested in getting involved with TIP, please contact us here. We’re open to all skill sets, but right now TIP is most eager to fill the following positions: 

Box Office Staff

TIP currently runs its pre-sales through an online booking form and over the phone. The ideal Box Office staff member would know their way around Google Forms and Google Docs, be able to respond promptly and politely to customer queries, and be able to collate sales information for the Front of House staff up to and during the run of a show.

As with all TIP positions, English is a must and proficiency in Japanese is highly desirable. But don’t forget - we’re always happy to help train people up in new skills. If you want to be involved in theatre but don’t have any experience on- or backstage, this is the perfect position for you!

Front of House Manager

Front of House is an audience member’s first interaction with TIP. An FOH Manager needs to be calm, personable and able to deal with anything our patrons or the needs of the show can throw at them! Along with their FOH Staff, the ideal candidate will be able to manage ticket sales (managing the ticket reservation lists prior to and during the show, along with the cash box, tickets and programs), drink, snack and merchandise sales, seating management (for large groups etc), and foyer displays for both the set-up and clean-up portions of the production. The FOH Manager also organizes volunteers and communication with the TIP Board if additional help is needed for any of the performances. 
English is essential and some degree of Japanese highly desirable in this role. If you’re good with crowds and can smile through any storm, this is the role for you! TIP takes it’s FOH very seriously, and as such we’re willing to provide full training to any candidate who expresses an interest.
