Arthur Pepine

Arthur Pepine's theater training began at the FAMEous High School of Performing Arts and continued at Brandeis University from which he graduated with a BA in Theater Arts. After eight years in the commercial theater, he joined Robert Brustein as a founding member of the Yale Repertory Theater. Only a scant year after coming to Yale, he sustained a spinal cord injury. Following his rehab he became an Assistant to the Dean directing the Financial Aid Office and faculty advising the student-run Yale Cabaret at the Yale School of Drama. In addition to managing those responsibilities, he has served in a number of statewide advocacy roles and continues to confound the actuaries who refused him life insurance thirty years ago.
