Dr. Thomas Paul Pfeiffer

A classically trained actor with a love for history, scholarship and Shakespeare, Dr Pfeiffer has dedicated his life to the pursuit and sharing of knowledge of the Theatre. A member of the faculty of Salisbury University since 1980, Dr Pfeiffer has been the Director of Theatre here since 1989. He enjoys directing a wide range of productions but especially the classics. His courses also focus on classical training for actors (especially Shakespeare) and on Theatre History. His one man play, 'Apology for the Life of an Actor' based on the memoirs of Colley Cibber, was produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2000 in Stratford, featuring David Ryall. The play was invited to the Edinburgh Fringe Theatre Festival that year. Dr Pfeiffer acted the role. In addition to his scholarly credits, Dr Pfeiffer has also trained further as an actor in order to inform his teaching as well as to refine his own skills. He has studied at the Herbert Bergh of Studio in Manhattan, the Folget Shakespeare Theatre in Washington and the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London.
