Comedic director gives Theatre students some serious training

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."

Miller is this semester's visiting instructor in the Department of Theatre’s Guest Artist Series. The Series gives students opportunities to work with national and international practitioners of specific theatre forms and network with professionals in the theatre industry.

Eli Halterman: "I'm starting my career"

I'm working with the Missoula Children’s Theatre, a traveling theatre company that visits all 50 states and several countries. My official title is a touring actor/director. In the towns we visit, we offer auditions to kids ages 6 to 18, then we teach them acting, blocking, and even songs as well. Then the kids put on the show for the community. I’m really excited about that. Kids are great and their energy is just really awesome.
