Musician & Performer
Karen is a Northern Sky veteran, having originated roles in Lumberjacks in Love, Belgians in Heaven, and more recently Whatever Happened to Karl Janko? She goes back so far in the company that the fall season box office line once rang in her kitchen, in a cottage on Gibraltar Road. Karen is also thrilled to be working as music director with Door Shakespeare this summer. She and her daughter Coralina live in Austin, Texas where Karen works at Austin Scottish Rite Theater as an actor, music director and sound designer. In her last role she appeared in Pippi Longstocking as a flabbergasted proper Swedish lady with crazy hair at a tea party. Karen is also a multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter, and just released a brand-new album of original songs with her musical partner David Stoddard.
