Funktionlust Performs with UMass’s Mission:Improvable

UMass’s Mission:Improvable and NHS’s Funktionlust will perform together on Friday, March 2 in the NHS Auditorium! This lively, spontaneous, and hilarious show will begin at 7:00 and go until 8:30. The cost is $5.

Funktionlust, now in its 13th year, is the only improv group at NHS. With their spontaneity and enthusiasm, they have entertained audiences at First Night and Florence’s Arts Night Out.

Mission:IMPROVable is UMass Amherst’s premiere short-form improvisational comedy group. Combining sharp wit, relentless teamwork, and enough energy to power a small village, Mission has been bringing endless laughs to the Pioneer Valley for over 26 years. They are currently the reigning champions of the annual ImprovBoston College Comedy Festival.

The show is family-friendly and a great escape from the cold!
