Comedy team brings Mission IMPROVable to Missouri Southern 

Joplin, MO – Mission IMPROVable, a four-person improv comedy team, will perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, in Webster Hall’s Corley Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University.

Presented by the Campus Activities Board, Mission IMPROVable adopt the roles of secret comedy agents, enlisting the assistance of audience members for hilarious theater games and “missions.” The audience is encouraged to yell out suggestions, which makes each performance truly unique.

Admission is free and open to the public.

Other events planned for the week of Sept. 19 include miniature golf on the campus Oval, the second book club discussion of “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” and a study-abroad presentation.

Monday, Sept. 19 

“Artist Behind the Iron Curtain”: Spiva Gallery. The exhibit features contemporary art from Czechoslovakia and tells the stories of the artists during a time in which their art could cause their imprisonment. It will run through Oct. 6. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.

Mission IMPROVable: 7 p.m., Webster Hall’s Corley Auditorium

“The Firemen’s Ball”: 7 p.m., Bookhouse Cinema, 715 E. Broadway. A milestone of the Czech New Wave, the 1967 film is both a dazzling comedy and a provocative political satire chronicling a firemen’s ball where nothing goes right. Presumed to be a commentary on the floundering Czech leadership, the film was “banned forever” in Czechoslovakia following the Russian invasion and prompted director Milos Froman’s move to America.

Wednesday, Sept. 21 

Miniature Golf Putting Challenge: 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on the Oval. Students will have the opportunity to put their putting skills to the test.

Presented by Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society, the event will include light refreshments.
