Comedic director gives Theatre students some serious training
Monday, February 13, 2012

Being funny is a workout, says actress and director Rima Miller. That's why while she's instructing Theatre students in physical comedy, she's also having her students exercise to prepare for their roles, holding a regular two-hour night class to learn new exercises.

"I'm teaching basics of that style of acting -- how to use the body in a funny way -- that requires learning timing, movement, and how to relate to the audience," says Miller. "Physical training is required to be able to do this, so we do that, too."
